Why do you love working for Academy Salons?
The reason I love working for Academy Salons is because I have been given many opportunities throughout my ten years of working for the company! I started as an assistant and was able to complete my NVQ level 2 and 3. Shortly after that I was able to do my assessors course, go on photoshoots, catwalks behind the scenes as a stylist. I then became a manager of one of our branches and Academy have provided me with support and care and I now have a lovely team of my own that I manage and teach and I love it! I consider Academy Salons as my family.
Do you have a specialism with Academy Salons? What would customers book in with you for?
I love doing all hair and having a variety of things booked in with me in a day. But in our particular branch I am the only one that does gents, hair up, perming and hair extensions alongside al other services. Academy Salons put me on a course once to teach for Balmain hair extensions which gave me the ability to feel confident with teaching others extensions and able to advise people!
