Paul Cochrane

Hi. I’m Paul Cochrane.

I’ve always been interested in fashion and style. I remember developing an interest back in the early 1980s – a time when London was leading the way in global fashions, and local hairdressing styles would sweep their way to becoming worldwide trends. The 80’s was all about Buffalo Style (think Levi’s Nick Camen Sade Nina Cherry and Malcom McLaren) which strangely was developed on Lambs Conduit Street by a cooperative headed by fashion stylist Ray Petri and I’ve worked on this street since 1989. 

I guess that’s what got me started, why I chose to become a hairdresser. I wanted to be a part of that revolution. Soon enough, I found I had a natural ability with hair. I didn’t just like it, I was good at it too. I worked my way through countless training courses – and years of experience – to become a successful, professional hair stylist.

Since then, my work has taken me all over the world. I’ve styled hair for more wonderful people than I can remember. I’ve worked with the stars, and I’ve met some real characters along the way. I even met my wife right here, in the salon!

There are many things that help shape and inspire me but would have say these would be up there. My Family and wanting to do the best for them. My time in The Parachute Regiment for adjusting my attitude to life by putting me into some very uncomfortable situations where you understand just how far you can go and the boys that I went through training with and then passing P Company.  Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist and his approach to photographing in the fashion capitals of the world: New York, London, Paris & Milan, also greatly inspires me.

I love the buzz of a happy motivated salon where the music is great and when a break in the music comes you can taste the passion, concentration and dedication to delivering great wearable haircuts…

My goal for Cochrane & Co is to become the go to salon for hair replacement and to be regarded as having the best hair systems available.

Styling hair is not just my job – it’s my passion. So why not stop by the salon sometime, and drop in for a consultation? I’d love to show you what I could do with your hair or with a hair system.
