Biography of Nicky Clarke

With a career spanning almost 40 years Nicky Clarke OBE is recognised in the beauty and fashion industry as one of the best hairdressers in the world - establishing his own mark in the world as a pioneer in the hairdressing industry. Heralded as the man who made hair glamourous and exciting again - Nicky Clarke has styled an entire generation of the world’s most famous faces including royalty, movie stars and pop icons.

Born on 17 June 1958, Nicky Clarke grew up in South London to an English father and Greek mother. His fascination with hairdressing began in his early teens and he began his career at the age of 16 assisting John Frieda at legendary hairdressers House of Leonard. He went on to complete his apprenticeship in a record 10 months instead of the usual 3 years. Clarke achieved his first Vogue spread at just 18yrs old.  He left House of Leonard 2 years later in 1976 under the tutelage of John Frieda to work at the John Frieda Clifford Stafford salon in Marylebone. 

Since opening his first eponymous salon in 1991 in Mayfair, the London born and bred hairdresser has expanded his empire to include salons in Birmingham and Manchester and a globally successful haircare brand. His passion for hairdressing has made Nicky Clarke an international icon with an OBE awarded in 2008 in recognition of his services to the British hairdressing industry..
