Meet Our Team of Hair Experts

Lucy Brown


From a young age, I have always had a passion for hair and beauty. I began as a mobile hair extensions technician nine years ago, building experience, information, new skills and specialist techniques. After just three years of trading, I had developed a strong, loyal client base of satisfied customers and wanted to progress further, so that I could offer them more. So Ludicrous Lengths’ first salon was opened in 2014.

My enthusiasm led me to continue to progress and expand my skills base and I completed many training programmes, including courses run by the industry leaders, Great Lengths. I also self-funded and completed my cutting qualifications in NVQs 1, 2, and 3, to enable me to develop the techniques I needed to move forward.

Two years later, I began to grow my team and opened a new salon in 2016, with an emphasis on providing a specialist extensions salon with comprehensive hair and beauty services for my clients, enabling them to feel valued and pampered among luxurious surroundings. Ludicrous Lengths was the first salon in the South West to obtain the Extensions Artist Accreditation award from the Good Salon Guide, which is now the industry standard for hair extensions, and within our very first year of trading we achieved 5-star salon status.

From a personal perspective, I am a perfectionist who pays close attention to detail, and I have a strong commitment towards customer service and quality, ensuring that the client experience down to every single bond is perfect.

I love meeting new people from all walks of life and I’m happy to include among my clients many Instagram-famous influencers and reality TV personalities. I am passionate about my work and look forward to continuing to meet my existing clients’ needs, making new clients and building my brand. My Gold Standard for the future is to see Ludicrous Lengths recognised among the industry leaders.

Sammie Pulsford

Hair Stylist

I began my love and passion for hair when I was around 6 years old, my Grandmother was very creative with hair and I always knew I wanted to follow in her footsteps. I was just 12 when I started my first role in a salon as a Saturday trainee, learning basic skills and good salon keeping.

I studied hairdressing at Filton college and during my time there I also worked at Bryant & Co in Thornbury. After having completed my education in NVQ 2, and 3, my role took me to Joel in Thornbury for several years and I rose to be a senior Stylist. During this time in a busy vibrant High Street salon, I learned how to perfect my skills in quality and efficiency.

I am currently enjoying being self-employed, working from Ludicrous Lengths in Thornbury. With over 12 years’ experience in the industry, I love all aspects of my career including fitting extensions, colouring etc, however, my speciality is blowdrying.

Camilla Harraway


I began my career in 2008 when I completed my degree to achieve a BSc Honours in Physiotherapy at Cardiff University. Over the last 12 years, I have completed various rotations as a qualified physiotherapist in both outpatient and inpatient settings including critical care. Since then I have completed a post-graduate diploma in Pilates, acupuncture, sports massage and joint manipulation.

My career in aesthetics began in 2014 when I completed a foundation Botox and dermal fillers course with Skinviva. I have since then completed many advanced injectables courses with various training academies, including kiss aesthetics. I am now skilled in delivering anti-wrinkle injection treatments for the upper, and lower face. I can also administer lip injections including Russian lips, and full facial contouring treatments using dermal fillers.

I also offer skin rejuvenating treatments such as radiofrequency facials, PRXT-33 chemical peels, skin needling, and mesotherapy treatments. I choose my skincare treatments based on their ability to deliver high-quality results, with minimal, to no downtime. Our newest addition is a body contouring machine called the Lipofirmpro. It is the best in its field! The only machine to be approved by the food and drugs agency for its safety AND effectiveness. Reducing fat, firming skin and improving muscle tone with no downtime, it has proved itself to be a favourite.

As a professional, I pride myself on my dedication to tailoring my treatments to each client’s needs. I ensure my clients are always in safe hands by maintaining excellent professional standards at all times and developing my knowledge and skills through professional forums and courses.

Natasha Nair

Make Up Artist and Beautician

Natasha Nair or as my clients know me…Niyah-freelance Professional Make-up Artist, Creative Hair Stylist, Microblading & Lamination Artist covering The South West. Here is my story and where it all began. I’ve always had an interest in all things creative, glamorous and to do with beauty since a young age whether it be art, photography, styling and now more recently hair and make-up my mother used to call me a magpie as I was always drawn to visually beautiful things…nothing’s changed!

I Initially studied in photography mainly fashion and studio-based, this where I found my creative skills & love for hair and make-up. Having been to shoots, promotions and catwalks and watched the pros at work I found my niche. In later years I also attended makeup courses and masterclasses, these have all contributed to developing my skills and tricks which have enabled me to now make people look and feel fabulous. More recently in my career I have found another love for Microblading & perfecting brows, this has proven to be a life-changing service for many.

With over 10 years’ experience, I feel there is a great need for a quality and affordable service in this industry. I aim to provide a perfectly tailored look for every individual, whether that’s with a stroke of a blade or dusting of colour and a few cleverly placed pins it’s amazing how make-up, hair and good brows can make a person look and feel amazing.

Cathy Carver

Hair Stylist

I’ve been in the industry now for almost 14 years. I left school at 16 years old and started work in a well-established salon in my home town of Market Harborough. Over my 11 years in that salon, I went on many cutting and colouring courses, including 4 days in London at the TIGI academy, Loreal colouring course in Leeds and I also completed my Goldwell Masters after only being qualified for a few years. I became assistant manager at the salon at 23, then after a few years, they asked me to be the manager of the newest salon they had opened.

I eventually decided to head out on my own and did mobile hairdressing for a couple of years while my boyfriend and I were looking for our first home. I then moved down to Thornbury and this is where my new chapter begins. I have a passion for colouring hair, from balayage to block colours, I love it all. I take pride in the service I provide, from the moment you walk through the door to the moment you leave.
