Colour tubes in Flaunt Salon at Bournemouth & Poole College

Sharelle, Simone Thomas

I enjoy working with experienced tutors and learning all sorts of new styling techniques!

Hairdressing apprentice in Flaunt Salon, Bournemouth & Poole College, DorsetI work for Simone Thomas as a Hairdressing apprentice. I get to perform all sorts of duties including  assisting stylists with washing clients’ hair, applying toner and blow drying. I also meet and greet clients and carry out general housekeeping duties to keep the salon neat and tidy.

Hairdressing is always something I have wanted to do. After completing my GCSEs and A Levels I decided that I wanted to earn some money and went straight into work. However, I kept thinking about Hairdressing, so I decided to follow my dream by applying to do an Apprenticeship at the College… and I’ve not looked back since!

I applied to the College because of the Lee Stafford Training on offer. I knew this would be excellent training. It has proved really useful and fun, as coming to College for my day release has given me the experience to work on model clients and practice outside of the pressure of the workplace. I have also really enjoyed working and building a relationship with my tutors. They are helpful, knowledgeable about the industry and answer any questions I have.
