Hair and Beauty

Carly came to College to pursue a career in the Beauty Therapy industry and following her studies on a Modern Apprenticeship has now owned and managed three successful salons, holds an A1 Assessor Award and has taken on other apprentices from the College.

Originally completing an NVQ Level 2 in Beauty Therapy at the College, Carly then moved on to Level 3 via a modern apprenticeship at the Head to Toe salon in Grassmoor. After completing her studies, Carly has gained a huge amount of industry experience, owning and indeed managing three Beauty Therapy salons. She currently owns and runs the highly rated ‘Therapy Lounge’ based in Hasland, Chesterfield and strongly believes that Apprenticeships are the best possible way into the industry. Carly explains, “I really enjoyed my time studying on an Apprenticeship and encourage anyone looking to get into Beauty Therapy to do the same. I am keen to give those coming through the College the same chances I had and as such have had numerous learners on work placement. In fact, currently I have a fantastic apprentice in my salon, Chloe, who has proved to be a real asset.

As well as gaining fantastic experience during my Apprenticeship the College’s salon is open to the public and provided me with a good working knowledge of a variety of treatments and skills such as working on reception booking clients in.”
