Who are you?
I’m Andrea, I’m a 48 years young business owner and mother of two beautiful grown up children. I own Natural Roots ethical salon in Glastonbury.
How do you spend your time?
The salon keeps me busy most of the time, I feel blessed that after 18 years I still enjoy my work.. I get to spend my days being creative and holding space for people to share their stories. When I’m not at work I spend time catching up with friends and family, I enjoy walking our sacred land and appreciate any chance I get to be outside in my garden.. I’m a very lucky lady!
What inspires you?
People inspire me, in my work I meet lots of people from far and wide and their stories inspire me, I often feel humbled.
What colour brings you joy?
So many colours bring me joy but for different reasons.. I love the combination of turquoise and gold, soft chocolate brown with warm copper.. a great combination for hi-lights!
What is your favourite item of clothing?
My favourite item of clothing is my Haruka mustard lambswool bolero cardigan.. I’m desperate for a new one (please make them again Amanda) followed closely by my collection of wool wide collar waistcoats, I wear them all the time.
How important to you is clothing as a medium of self expression?
Clothing has always been an important form of self expression to me…working in the fashion industry I have always felt that its important to set a good example, so looking good yet being comfortable is the key. It is also very important to me as an ethical business owner that I support other like minded businesses, shopping at Haruka covers all of my needs, ethical, stylish and comfortable.. perfect!
