Claudia said, “I specialize in balayage/color shifting and have lived in dimensional coloring techniques.

“I just started my second bridal hair business called Linnieme & Beyond Boho Bridal Styling, a dedication to my mother.

“Brides can come to my garden studio where I do wedding parties for all the bride and groom with cakes and Prosecco, it’s a real treat.

“I never thought I would be so successful. I just had a concept and a vision for an individual personal approach that you don’t hear often in the beauty industry or in my area.

“I was in awe of what he had accomplished and knew I was destined to follow in his footsteps.

“I chose to specialize in techniques that I loved doing and what clients were looking for in my area. I majored in a specialty and it was the best thing I’ve ever done.

“Being rewarded as a finalist is the icing on the cake.

“My decor was built by my husband, my father and my father-in-law. My vision was a comfortable natural retreat where you can relax and be at peace.”

The Cozy Garden Room is located at Lodge Road in Doncaster.
