After working in the fast paced corporate world since leaving school at 16 and having my 3 children, I didn’t feel that being in an office was for me. I have always been creative and loved how ever changing the beauty industry was and knew that’s where I wanted to be and what I wanted to be doing. I studied at night college to gain my nail certifications and various beauty certificates.
For a few years whilst my children were young I ventured into self employment and covered the Warrington and surrounding areas to offer my nail and beauty treatments. It didn’t take me long to build a large client base so I needed somewhere permanent to work to fit all of my clients in. I worked part time in a local salon during school hours so that I could still be home with my children but do the job I love.
I stayed in the salon for 2 years but wanted more. I wanted my own salon where I could grow my business and my offerings, I wanted to teach others what I love. I gained my teachers qualification and completed a few more beauty courses with skincare brands that I wanted to use.
My salon has been open for 3 years now and I’m glad I took the plunge. It means I have a beautiful venue where I can teach and work. I love teaching, giving students the skills and confidence to grow. I look forward to helping my students on their journey into the Beauty Industry.
Kathryn is a wonderful tutor, very welcoming, reassuring and was great at explaining and demonstrating clearly throughout the course. I was slightly anxious & nervous about attending the course and throughout, however Kathryn was so kind, kept checking if I was ok and made the whole experience so much easier for me, so for that I am thankful.
