From a young age, I have always been very creative and enjoyed playing with hair. I used to do my families and friends hair for fun, so I wanted to learn more and gain a qualification
I loved the short course, so I studied the VET course at school learning to wash and blow dry hair and apply all over colours. This put me at a huge advantage when finding my apprenticeship and made me feel comfortable in a salon environment.
