I like the sound of that.   I was tempted years ago to  have a salon but ended up freelancing.  I always liked the ida of the style room.  It sounds like you have it all sused out.

 Hello, I missed this bit earlier on.

I'm Em and I am a 40 year old hairdressing student. Having been in a 'desk job' or 'Just a Mum' for too many years I feel now is the time to follow my dream. 

My aim is to pass NVQ 1+2 this academic year, onto level 3 then off to a salon - then - who knows.................. I am thoroughly enjoying myself on the course and cant wait to get stuck in properly and be a hairdresser.

Hi Everyone I am Loretta and I have been hairdressing for 20 + years and I still love it today as much as my first day ....... I Love Education - I believe everyone has something to teach and something to learn every single day. Trained in Liverpool UK at Colquitt Street College and Hairlucinations with the fabulous John Butcher and I truly would not be the hairdresser i am today without his guidance and passion ! i loved it so much 10 years went by and I was now the manageress and salon trainer...what ever became of the quiet Saturday assistant ?? Moved to Bermuda in 1996 and worked at Renaissance Hair and Skin Clinic for 7 years. Totally different way of hairdressing over there due to humid climate and everyone riding mopeds ( long story - read my blog for the full story - www.travellinghairdresser@blogspot.com ) I taught in the salon and absolutely loved it. We travelled to New York every year to the big hair show IBS ( Think Salon International but American sized !! ) every year and i soon became addicted to the buzz and enthusiasm of New York City life. "One day I will live here " I declared as I stepped out of the cab !! My love of teaching drew me back to the UK in 2003 where I began full time teaching at Liverpool Community College ( coincidentally now the same college where i trained all those years ago ! ) It was so educational and my standards and levels of teaching are so much higher because of their rigorous standards - Thanks girls !But I still wanted more.............. maybe New York still needed me ? So now I have been living in New York City and working at Arrojo Studio for 2 months and it feels like home - I totally love it ! What an amazing and expanding company , I am so lucky to be a part of the amazingly talented Arrojo Team. Not only is in salon education a passion here but so is travelling education all over the USA at all major trade shows teaching Razor Cutting, Colour Techniques and Styling and also as part of the Wella Creative Artists Educational Classes. Then there is the new Academy and Cosmetology School as well as the product line, tools and equipment ....... phew....... ( and all that from a fellow Brit Mancunian hairdresser called Nick Arrojo ) watch this space ! Anyway .......thats enough about me ! I would love to chat to anyone who is passionate about hair and education so we can compare ideas and notes about trends, products and techniques both sides of The Atlantic, I do hate to miss out on anything ! Please drop me a line - thanks x
