I developed an interest in the industry after many years of having beauty treatments myself.
I then started a part time course in nail services at the Sheffield College whilst working as a mortgage administrator and customer service advisor at a building society. I started a part time beauty course in September 1985 and completed it in May 1986.
I enjoyed the course so much I started my own business venture renting a room in a local hair salon offering manicures, pedicures and all the nail services available. I also wanted to offer beauty and tanning treatments so enrolled on the level 2 Beauty therapy course at Sheffield college and gained my qualification in May 1998. Since then I have completed many qualifications in nails, semi-permanent make up, individual eyelash extensions along with my teaching degree and assessors award.
What inspires you to train?
I am inspired by the student’s journey. The start, the middle and the end.
Why did you decide to develop a career in training?
I knew I would enjoy passing on my knowledge and experience to others. I wanted a happy and sociable career. When I am training the atmosphere is always full of excitement, enthusiasm and happiness.
Why do you enjoy being part of the Sienna X training team?
Sienna X is a family run business with strong values and from day one I have felt part of this growing family. I enjoy being a trainer for the best tanning product on the market.
My enjoyment working with Sienna X has come from watching the brand change, grow and the birth of the wax range. The courses are extensively available from the private sector to colleges. The courses and resources are informative, affordable, professional and enjoyable.
Sienna X Product you couldn’t live without and why?
The Sienna X Express Tanning Mist. It’s convenient, quick and effective. I can always tan visible skin in seconds.
