The team


Patricia looking at the camera

Patricia’s hairdressing career began from the day she left school. She completed her City & Guilds and worked in Dublin and London as a ladies' hairdresser and men’s barber. Eventually settled in Kent and opened her first salon in 2003. In 2015, she rebranded the original Impact hair salon as “Dempsey”, reflecting her personal commitment to great cuts and gorgeous colour. 

She trained with Vidal Sassoon and Tony and Guy and has gone on to teach aspiring hairstylists at Canterbury College as a qualified NVQ assessor. She is also the salon’s colour specialist and has completed The Wella Master Colour Program. She is one of an elite group of UK colourists who have achieved the "Wella Master Colour Expert" diploma.

Let's talk about love

The secret to loving your hair is finding the cut (and the colour) that works for you and your lifestyle. If you’ve got to force it, well, we don’t think that’s true love.

The other thing about love, is that it’s endless - there’s always more to go around.

That’s why when you visit Dempsey, we’ll give you a reminder for your next appointment AND a 20% off referral card for you to pass on to a friend.

Once your friend has claimed 20% off their first Dempsey appointment, you can also scoop yourself a 20% discount off your next cut and/or colour.

This is an ongoing offer, so the more friends and family you refer to us, the more discounts you can enjoy.
