My Story

From the age of 6, I have always known..I was going to go into the wonderful profession of 'Hair & Makeup.'

I studied to become a Master in this profession for my key role was eventually aiming towards teaching.

As a top stylist in Stoke -on-Trent, I travelled to London where I landed a position in Hair Makeup for interesting show work in Hong Kong.

After this contract was complete I moved on to Australia Sydney, furthering my experience in to the world of television and magazine.

After this contract was complete I then went back to the UK to work for Andrew Collinge , where I represented the company in staff presentations and conducted seminars at a local college in Chester. This was also where I began to study my level 4 NVQ.

Once more I was drawn to wards taking my career further afield, which led me once more to London where I joined the P&O Cruises from Southampton on a 3 year tour on board the cruise liners delivering makeup classes, photography and formal night ball attire styles. This took me around the world adding to my experience in the world of Hair art and fashion trends.

Finally I decided to open up a business in Spain Malaga, Arroyo del la miel. From there I decided to work as a freelance Hair makeup artist for various salons in Marbella, and this is where I entered into the commercial world of television shows, pop video clips (Las Ketchup, Dove the Italian artist, Micha Paris etc) and magazine covers. (Allure & Hello) I Stayed 15years.

I moved on to Stuttgart Germany, continuing my work in the field of Hair & Makeup which pushed me into the hectic world of weddings and salon work.

Here I obtained the introduction to my teaching cert AET> Award in Education and Training course.
