From student to an apprentice
Before my hairdressing apprenticeship, I worked every Saturday at my local hairdressers, Richo’s Hair and Beauty Boutique. I loved the experience! I found that the more my boss Rebecca Richardson taught me, the more I fell in love with hairdressing.
So, when I finished my GCSEs, I was planning to take my experience further and study hair at college. I started college as planned, but soon it became clear that it was not for me – I didn’t enjoy it. That is when I decided to carry out a hairdressing apprenticeship with Realise.
Thankfully Rebecca offered me an apprenticeship with Realise, which allowed me to learn on the job, with more hours than I would have had at college so I could get more experience.
