Dean V

“As soon as a client walks in the salon door I’ll already have an idea of how I’d like to style their hair!  I want them to walk out feeling amazing and confident, with an added touch of gossip!”

The BIG BOSS MAN is here, this is Dean Vinning Sixth Sense Salons joint founder and Salon Director.

Dean V came from humble beginnings but knew from the age of 4 years old when he used to visit his local salon with his nan that he wanted to be a hairdresser. Dean recalls the smell of perm solution, cigarette smoke and the buzz of hood dryers along with a cackle of gossip took him by storm; ever since this day he has never looked back.

With over 20 years’ experience within the industry, Dean has worked and trained alongside some of the best hairdressers in the world; making his skill set very unique and diverse.

Prior to opening Sixth Sense Salon Dean headed up an artistic team for a MASSIVE salon brand, delivering bespoke education around the UK; he also set up an academy in Birmingham where he delivered his unique style to hairdressing to inspire 100’s of young stylists into the industry.

Over 12 years ago, Dean completed his Master Colour Expert qualification which made him one of the most qualified colour technicians in the industry… The following year he reached the grand final of the prestigious Wella Trend Vision Award.

Dean is PASSIONATE about education and wants his team to have exactly the same opportunities he did within the industry which is why you can regularly see the 6S team around the UK training and at industry events.  

Dean’s just loves creating short structured haircuts accompanied with a strong, bold colour; check out this image below from Sixth Sense’s first collection #one.

His industry icon would be the late Vidal Sassoon who spearheaded Deans passion to continue to innovate through hair within his own salon.

2015/2016/2017 Regional Finalist – Wella Trend Vision
