Shelley Sumner is an international session hairstylist based in London.

Her passion for hair and fashion have motivated Shelley to become a freelance artist, eager to create and explore new concepts that inspire others.


Roles as an Educator and 'Session Team' member for a top salon brand, mentor for L'Óreal and working closely with GHD have shaped Shelley into the stylist she is today.

Always comfortable with new techniques, Shelley is equally comfortable with commercial and editorial styling, and flexible to what each project requires.
