Lee was first introduced to Sassoon in 2005 when he joined Sassoon Salon, Leeds for a two week school work placement. Inspired by the team he worked with, Lee returned to the Leeds salon in 2007 to begin his apprenticeship and start his career at Sassoon.
During his time as an Assistant, Lee was awarded Assistant of the Year and given the opportunity to work with the UK Creative Team on the seasonal collection shoot. After qualifying as a Stylist in 2009, Lee quickly built a strong clientele, reveling in the daily interaction with the assistants. His collaborations with friends on various visual projects has led him to work as part of the UK session team for fashion weeks, leading the team season after season for the Sadie Clayton show.
Lee’s dedication, creativity and passion for the craft continues to shine through and in November 2015, Lee was promoted to Assistant Creative Director before transferring to Sassoon Salon, Manchester in January 2017.
