Farewell to Hair Industry Icon Ann Rattray

Farewell to hair industry icon Ann Rattray, co-owner of Hype Coiffure. Remembering her kindness and mentorship to hair stylists. Rest in peace, Ann.

Ann Rattray, who was the co-owner of award- winning Hype Coiffure hair salons in South London, for more than 25 years sadly passed on 30th March 2023.

Ann fought bravely against brain cancer, but sadly she was defeated by the illness.

Throughout her life, Ann was such an  exceptionally caring and kind person, who connected easily with people no matter what their age, class or race.

She always offered good advice and guidance when asked by others, particularly to Hype Coiffure’s trainee and professional hair stylists,  who under her watchful eye, learned how to hone their hairdressing skills to an advanced level.

Family was everything to Ann and she leaves behind many family members and friends who are completely heartbroken by her departure from this world. Never to be forgotten, may Ann rest in eternal peace 💜🙏🏾🕊️

    Ann blessed so many people with her love and kindness, including me, you were an earth Angel and I was so honoured to have known you. I'm praying that the family find comfort in your memories of her and in the knowledge that others are missing her, too. Rest in Paradise sweetheart, until we meet again.

    Paulette Blye ❤️ ❤️

    Ann you are sadly missed by me, you were a friend to me you encouraged me and advised me through my tuff time we spent lots of memorable moments together. You took sick while we were out together, I was there I saw your pain from the beginning, I saw you the day before you departed this life, I know you wanted to finally go to rest. Take your rest my friend I love you but Jesus loves you best, SIEP
