Former hairdressing student – and now college stylist – Hana Jones
“Practice makes perfect,” says 24-year-old Hana Jones and she’s certainly proved that’s the case after landing a job as a graduate stylist in the college’s Academy hair salon.
Hana, who studied for the Level 3 diploma in hairdressing at the college last year, was offered the job after impressing staff with her commitment to improving her skills by working in the salon – at the Metro One campus – during the half-term and summer holidays.
Hana said: “Gaining extra experience in the salon really boosted my confidence. It felt amazing when I was offered the job and I’m very proud of myself and what I have achieved.
“I struggled for a few years to find something that I was really interested but now I have and I wouldn’t change it for the world – I love my job!”
