I qualified in Ladies Hairdressing and Wigmaking as a past fulltime student of the then Birmingham College of Food and Domestic Arts. I then worked in the hairdressing industry for many years before I went into teaching. My primary roles in the salon included Senior Stylist and Salon Manager of two salons. With the support of the Prince’s Trust I then embarked on a self-employed career as a Freelance Hairdresser for 13 years.

I started teaching in Further Education establishments in 2001 and achieved my Certificate in Further Education in 2004. I held different positions within the teaching role including Salon Manager and African Type Hair Co-Ordinator.

I joined University College Birmingham in 2004 as a full-time lecturer, where my key responsibilities are Lecturer and Mentor for the Hair & Media Make-up course and Assistant Internal Verifier.


I teach the following units:

  • Follow health and safety practice in the salon
  • Client consultation for hair services
  • Client care and communication in beauty related industries
  • Shampoo and condition the hair and scalp
  • Cut women’s hair
  • The art of dressing hair
