Frances grew up in Yorkshire, in the North East of England, relocating to the United States in her twenties.
Born into a creative family, her mother a designer and her father an inventor, Frances was always drawn to the arts. She holds a degree in ceramics and was a pre-teen glam rocker who harassed her long-suffering mother, nightly, to sew fringe down the sides of her leggings or make tiny skirts out of stretch lace. She soon realized that if her poor mother was ever going to live in peace she would have to learn to provide for herself, and so her passion for DIY was born. From designing and making clothes, crafting faux leatherwork- Frances is a long-time vegan- to cutting and colouring hair, or enhancing it with extensions, her creativity knows no bounds, and respects no authority.
Frances completed her Cosmetology education in Philadelphia at a private Aveda Institute, and moved to New York City shortly afterwards.
Although she specializes in extensions, she also loves cutting, colouring, event styling and editorial work.
When she’s not creating extraordinary coiffures at Salon No. 15, Frances can be found hanging out with her cats, eating doughnuts, drinking flavoured vodka at her local dive bars, riding her bike around looking cool, or scouring the dollar stores in Chinatown for holographic artwork featuring tigers.
