Owner and colour specialist at Fluid The Color Salon.

Trish Spessa

How would you describe your style aesthetic?

I’m not sure I have a definition for my aesthetic. I’m broad and open and feel like I respond to different environments and moods. This is reflected in my hair life, being able to colour and style my guests into their vibe and bring their vision to life.

Where is your ultimate holiday destination?

I’m religiously chasing the sun around the world. There are so many sun-filled destinations on my list; Bali, Thailand, Mexico, Palm Springs, Ibiza and Portugal.  I never thought I’d say this, as I am allergic to the cold, but I’d love to experience the Northern Lights, so Norway too.

Pick your poison?

Red wine when it’s cooler and then it’s ALL on when it’s hot!

What hair product/tool are you loving?

I am really loving O&M’s newest addition to their already incredible ammonia free range; CØR Restore. It’s a complete in-salon restorative treatment packed full of Biomimetic Amino Acids and pure organic elements for maximum hydration. I love it in my toners and as a stand-alone treatment. My favourite tool is the Dyson Hair dryer. What a game changer!

A song that is forever on repeat?

Classics like Marvin Gaye and Al Green.

Best advice anyone has given you?

Life becomes more meaningful when we take in the simple fact that we never get this same moment twice. And if all else fails, chuck it in the F%$K It Bucket and move on.

What trend would you like to see stick around in 2020?

I’m rallying to keep bobs, lobs and accessories. And I want to see climate change awareness continue into 2020 and beyond! We need to live more sustainably and cultivate a life of ECO not EGO.

What would be your last meal?

That’s a hard one. Ask all my friends, I eat everything, and my life is built around snacks. I would have to sit in a Lazy Susan, and it would be a salmon poke bowl, an array of sushi and sashimi, vegetarian lasagne, and dark chocolate. I’d also add in my husband’s home-made pizza, and tiramisu. Oh hell, just throw it all in!
