Along with styling the hair of well-known faces, Joey has also worked for the likes of Vogue magazine on fashion shoots. When he isn’t working, Joey enjoys travelling with his partner Sophie Jennings – with the pair frequently sharing snaps from exotic locations on their respective Instagram accounts.

Richard Ward himself – who Joey has worked closely with over the years – has previously cut and styled William’s wife’s hair.

Richard memorably cut the Duchess of Cambridge a grown-out fringe back in 2015, which was dubbed the ‘gringe’. Richard then appeared on This Morning to style the look on presenter Holly Willoughby, who was “thrilled” with the results.
