What are you qualified in?
I am a NVQ2 qualified hairdresser, an NVQ3 qualified Beautician. I have a diploma in theatrical and media makeup and a diploma in Semi-permanent cosmetics.
Why did you choose this career path?
I have always been a very artistic person, I never really understood the more academic subjects. I was always interested in hair and makeup, getting into permanent makeup was a bit of a shock to me. I had never really thought anything of it. I knew it existed but it never crossed my mind that I could do it. Untill one of my close friends mentioned she had met a training company and said I’d love it. Well I trained and have never looked back since. Its my passion, I wish I had learnt it sooner, but being a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason” before obviously wasn’t the right time.
Who is your celebrity icon?
Megan Fox, she is stunning! And her eyebrows are simply amazing!
