The Spring journey started when Matthew began researching how to work with naturally curly hair and discovered Lorraine Massey. He bought her book, ‘Curly Girl: The Handbook’, in 2010 and hasn’t looked back. After making contact with Lorraine, in 2011 he flew to New York and became her protégé, with a desire to learn – really, properly learn – all he could about working with curly hair.
Whilst being trained by Lorraine he made the decision there and then to focus entirely on cutting curls – a leap of faith but absolutely the right decision. Matthew will be forever grateful to Lorraine. In Matthew’s own words, “I have never been happier, Spring’s journey has only just begun…”
In 2018 Matthew became one of the 12 members of Schwarzkopf’s “The Collective”, a programme designed to support 12 of its rising stars who produce digital content exclusively for the brand. Matthew was honoured to be part of this initiative and worked to spread the “curly word” among fellow professionals.
2018 saw the launch of Curl by Curl® cutting workshops at Spring, “It has been my aspiration and goal to become an educator. I love the curly hair industry and want to give something back and inspire my fellow professionals and educate the younger generation coming through. Together we will spread the curly love!”
