I started my career as a hairdressing apprentice and attended UCB for training. I then progressed to stylist before setting up my own business. During this time I worked Freelance Bridal, Fashion Shows and maintained regular clients for Hair & Make-up. Aged 22, I started teaching initially at Walsall College and later at Sandwell College and expanded qualifications to include Holistic Therapies and other qualifications. I became an Advanced Practitioner in teaching and managed Hairdressing Programmes at Sandwell College. Myself & Tsai set up, Programmed & Managed Theatrical, Special Effects, Hair & Media Make-up Level 3. Two years later I introduced Level 2 Hair & Media make-up and managed both programmes whilst Tsai managed HE Specialist Hair & Make-Up. Currently I teach on Level 3 Theatrical and lead Internal Quality Assurance for the make-up based programmes in FE.
