More about the boss

I fell in love with doing guys hair when started to train in ladies hairdressing At Leicester college. As soon as we started to train in Barbering I was hooked.

I started at the bottom, working as the new girl in a salon. I worked my way up to managing the salon, before leaving to start my own salon. I've worked abroad in Greece, Spain and Gibraltar.

Why did you set up the academy?

Everywhere I worked, I noticed very poor standards in barbering. Over time I started training the people I worked with. This has, over time, led me into all-out teaching and training - helping others to improve their skills base, and further their careers.

What drives you?

I love Barbering with real passion. Whether it's cutting, razor work, or clippers - when any thing new comes forward in my line of work i have to see what is! I love to work with the best products on the market. From care-products to tools, I have to have the best tools for my trade!
