HOLLIE – Apprentice Stylist
Hollie realised her passion for the hairdressing industry at a very young age and was always practicing a variety of hairstyles on friends and family! She knew she wanted to become a Stylist as soon as she could leave school and so started her Apprenticeship with us after completing her GCSE’s.
She spends her time at the salon learning in a salon working environment and attends college for one day a week at our local training centre, Introtrain. She is trained for both theory and practical skills at college and at the salon so it’s a constant feed of knowledge for her to prepare her for the crazy but wonderful world of hairdressing! She is very conscientious and always strives to ensure the clients receive the very best service. Her confidence grows continuously and she is already demonstrating very good practical skills which we will continue to develop to ensure she has the skills and knowledge required for our busy salon floor.
She is motivated by new challenges and experiences and is enjoying being pushed slightly out of her comfort zone and the feeling of achievement this brings to her day.
Although lockdown has set us all back a little, we are pleased that her practical training is now well underway and we look forward to celebrating with Hollie her first big milestone of achieving her NVQ Level 2 qualification. We have no doubt she is a shining star in the making and look forward to developing her into an amazing Mint & Marigold Stylist.
