DC Hairdressing is owned and managed by myself, Danielle Carver- I am a professional freelance hairdresser based in the East Midlands. My main client base is situated in Ilkeston and I cover all surrounding areas, up to and including Swanwick, Alfreton, Ripley, Ockbrook, Eastwood, Sandiacre, Long Eaton, I travel further afield for weddings. I have over 13 years experience and I am fully qualified to Level 2 and 3 in Hairdressing and Barbering, including an advanced Diploma in Hairdressing, graduating at Nottingham University. During my time at college I won a hairdressing competition and gained experience working with makeup artists and photographers on photo shoots. I am friendly, reliable and highly recommended within the Nottingham/Derby areas; I only use the very best quality products on all my clients. I have experienced working in small town salons as a self-employed stylist to working in a busy city centre salon in Nottingham.

Previous to me starting my own mobile business, my hairdressing career began in 2002 at The Worx, based in Ilkeston, here I started my NVQ apprenticeship and once qualified became a self-employed stylist within the salon, gaining vast experience and building a long standing clientele. In 2009 I trained to become an assessor and took the position offered by an academy in Nottingham, here I trained and assessed NVQ apprentices to level 2 and 3 in hairdressing and barbering, then gaining a qualification in teaching through Warwick University.

During my career I have attended many hairdressing courses to keep my skills updated; these courses include training with the very inspiring Tigi team on advanced cutting, GHD for creative cutting, colouring with Kadus and L’Oreal and numerous wedding and vintage hair courses. Attending courses is something I enjoy doing and I will continue to seek out new techniques, products and styles to ensure 100% client satisfaction every time.

I provide a range of hairdressing services, specialising in wedding hair within the comfort of your own home or venue of choice. For some women, a trip to the salon can be a relaxing experience but for many visiting a salon can be intimidating or inconvenient due to work or family commitments, as a mobile hairdresser I provide an excellent alternative. From experience my clients prefer their hair appointments at home having originally come from salons, as they find the service more personalised, convenient and have no worries of conversations being over heard or insecurities dampening the experience for them, I offer the same high quality services that can be found in any salon for very reasonable prices. Many women like to let off steam whilst relaxing having their hair done, I know each of my clients individually and have had the pleasure of seeing many of their children grow into lovely young adults off to university, my aim is to ensure my clients always feel special, happy, cared for and like a weight has been lifted with each appointment. Being freelance, I am able to be flexible with times and can arrange an appointment for a time or day that suits you, saving you time, money and stress.I am very passionate about hairdressing, in-particular bridal hair; over the years I have helped brides look their best on their big day at many different venues over the Nottingham and Derby areas. I myself am due to get married this year and fully understand how important it is to have reliability in your chosen companies for your big day, DC Hairdressing can help take some of your stress away by providing the reliable, high quality service you require, please don’t hesitate to contact me for any enquires, advice or free consultation.
