Hair student Katie Edington
Hairdressing student Katie Edgington wants to be a session stylist in the future and got the chance to take part in photo shoots and competitions as part of her course.
Katie said: “When my tutors found out that this is what I want to do in the future they went above and beyond what they needed to do to get me as much experience as they could.
“Hairdressing is really creative and the more sessions I’ve worked on the more it has fuelled my passion to make this my career. The sessions have enabled me to use all the techniques I’ve learnt on my course and when I see pictures of a model I’ve worked on I get a real adrenalin rush!
“And working in the Academy salon has been a great experience – when clients tell you they look good there’s no feeling like it in the world!”
Now that Katie has qualified she wants to get more experience in a salon to build up her portfolio and then move into her dream job as a session stylist.
