Greg James

Founder & Creative Director

Greg James is at the creative helm of the salon overseeing a team of highly skilled stylists and natural hair colour specialists. Greg knew that hairdressing was his vocation from an early age and has been fortunate to have never needed to deviate from his path. He began his career at Vidal Sassoon in 1999 and quickly progressed through increasingly senior positions at several leading salons before becoming Creative Director of Aveda salon, Kamigata. Here he developed his understanding of the benefits of organic products. Greg is now delighted to be leading his own team at Goji and, as well as providing the full range of colour and cuts, he is also our Great Lengths and hair up specialist. He loves to be inventive so if you’re not sure what you want, just put yourself in his capable hands!
