I started in hairdressing some 25 years ago having achieved levels 2 and 3 in hairdressing.
After perfecting my art I opened my own salon which was established for 17 years then joined up with Alan at the salon 10 years ago.
During this time I have employed and trained young apprentices within the salon some of whom have gone on to open their own successful business.
I believe education is vital to our work and I personally receive a great deal of satisfaction from passing my knowledge on to the young hairdressers of today. To assist in this I enrolled and graduated in 2009 I graduated with a Pcet Teaching degree through Sunderland University at New College Durham.
One of the areas I truly enjoy teaching is cutting and colouring techniques, so much so that I endeavour to attend a variety of courses to keep abreast of the ever changing trends.
Over the past few years I have attended courses by Andrew Collinge, Lee Stafford, Vidal Sassoon and Hob academy London. More recently in August 2011 a four day cutting program at the Redken- Exchange and a day with top colourist Beth Minardi.
Colour is my passion your hair colour is the make-up you never take off.
