Say hello to our new Salon Director, Matthew Arnold!

Welcome to our newest addition to the team, Matthew, who's joining us as Salon Director.

Book in with Matthew now for cuts, blow dries, up-dos and consultations, and Matthew will give you the confidence to recreate your new look at home with his brilliant tips.

Matthew began his hair journey in 2003, where he trained and worked in Nottingham before working and travelling around Australia, specifically Sydney and Brisbane, before returning to Leeds where he joined GHD as their Creative Educator. In this role, Matthew educated stylists on upcoming trends, presented seminars for ghd and worked at shows such as Salon International.

Matthew says, “Moving to Cardiff, Ken Picton was the obvious choice and to work in such a prestigious, award-winning salon is an honour. The work that the salon has produced for campaigns and magazines is the type of work that I love - it wouldn’t look out of place on the high street or on the cover of a glossy magazine.

Matthews successes include wining ghd Creative Educator of the Year; he specializes in up-dos and loves creating and styling for special occasions such as weddings and proms. Another passion is big bouncy blow dries, on which he uses a large curling tong once the hair is blow-dried to add smoothness and longevity to the hair style.
