Watch Kiki interview Emma Hobden, Lani Hunter & Paegan Ashton about their time and Experiences of becoming an apprentice.
My name is Sally and I have been hairdressing since 1985.
Even after all this time I am still passionate about my job and am constantly striving to improve and update my skills. Over the years I have attended many different courses within the industry, including the Paul Mitchell cutting system master class in July 2013, Paul Mitchell Intelligent Style look and learn the lesson, the 5 Step Plus, which is a customer service based course later on in the year.
I am originally from South East London which is where I began my hairdressing career. After qualifying as a stylist I took a couple of years out to travel living in both Oslo and Toronto which was an amazing experience. On my return to London in 1993 I was excited to resume my hairdressing career and started work at Shobiz Hair and Beauty which was considered the Premier Salon in South East London. Whilst there I worked my way up from designer to salon consultant and it was here that my passion for teaching and education grew.
In May 2006 I relocated to Eastbourne with my 3 children and joined Topknots in Sovereign Harbour. I worked here for 3 years then in January 2010 I was given the exciting opportunity to join The Grove Experience as an educator and Master Associate. Since joining I have achieved my A1 qualification which allows me to assess our NVQ candidates within the salon. I have also completed a preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector diploma at Sussex Downs College which has helped me to plan and deliver lessons of a higher quality to our NVQ students. My goal for the future is to expand the training and become a teaching academy, offering courses on all aspects of hairdressing at all levels.
I feel privileged to work in a fantastic salon with such a fun, creative team and I thank Gary and Giovanna for giving me the opportunity to realise my dream.
I am the head of education at the Experience Education Academy, where I oversee the general running of the academy the other educators and all dealings with are training partners and Cheynes education.
