It has been a tough year for everyone and we are so grateful for the support of our customers, but also the ongoing dedication of our staff. Many of you have been asking after Jade, who was one of millions of apprentices that faced having their college-based training cut short before being able to qualify, so we wanted to share an update on this but also introduce her to you in more detail.
Jade has been with us since August 2018 and has been working hard not only in the salon, but also at college. While training as a stylist, you practise your work on a ‘dolly head’ so that you can master the skills you need before working on customers’ hair. During lockdown, like many, Jade really struggled and found it hard to find the motivation to keep practising. But with support from her family, friends and the team at the salon she has stuck with it and is making every week count. She’s excited to sit her final exams later this year and we have every confidence that she will smash it.
Jade enjoys spending time with her family, taking her dog Millie for walks, having snuggle cuddles with her cat Pippa and watching her fish Ariel. When Jade is not with her family, she spends time with her friends going shopping.
Jade has amazing, long, thick hair, so we asked her what her go-to product was. She has a few so we will start with her all-time favourite, the GHD Curl Hold Spray. Before she started using it she always struggled curling her hair and tried numerous products but none of them would hold. She tried the GHD Curl Hold Spray and fell in love.
Jade says: “This is my go-to product. It’s a brilliant all in one spray and it even offers heat protection, I swear by it and recommend it to anyone who loves curling their hair.”
When Jade is not filling her portfolio with amazing hair transformations, we can find her in our back room snacking on her favourite snack Kinder Bueno hippos which she washes down with a caramel frappuccino.
Jade’s hairdressing hero is Taylor Hartman who owns a salon in America. She has given jade the inspiration to complete her level 2 and level 3 and specialises in blondes which is right in line with Jade’s favourite area of hairdressing, highlighting and balayage.
The team at Salon Beautique is extremely proud of Jade, not only of how far she has come but also her commitment to her position within the salon through some of the craziest times any of us have ever experienced. We’re looking forward to seeing her flourish in the months to come.
