We will teach, mentor and support students to grow and develop essential life skills incl. physical, emotional and mental well being

This fund raiser is to launch a Holistic Training Academy

Teaching, training, mentoring and empowering young people in my experience is one of the most rewarding ways to spend your time.  After over 10 years in teaching both valuable transferable life skills alongside industry ready hair dressing skills, I have now developed a training program to further support young people in developing their life skills, managing finances and sustaining good physical, emotional and mental health.  The academy will develop competent junior stylists who are reliable, able to communicate well with both team mates and customers and also can work with minimum assistance. We will support all students in finding employment with surrounding salons and will always give additional advice and support to our students after they leave the academy.

Growing up in these times can be so confusing for young adults - so much information to process every single day, so the more support we can all give them the better.

The competent graduate stylists from our academy will be ready to be employed and be an asset to salons to help them grow and develop their business.  We all know how hard it can be to find a "good stylist" and we all have our stories about bad hair cut/colour experiences.  I believe that this is due to a real problem in the hair industry from when students leave college and need further support to become ready for employment.  Hair Salons are busy places where top stylists are understandably super busy creating beautiful cuts and colours and simply do not have the time to teach.  Many salons are no longer taking on students and this is a growing trend in the industry which is creating a shortage of hair stylists. In addition we can match our trained junior stylists to salons suiting their personality and desired career path.

The academy will work with local colleges as they can signpost college leavers to our academy for valuable further training to increase their employability. 

We have a huge focus on health and well being, working with certified organic, vegan, cruelty free, high performance hair products, meaning no nasty chemicals in the building.  Our team and guests will enjoy longer appointment times, helping to create a calm and nurturing environment so no one ever feels rushed. Complementary head, neck & shoulder, hand massages and organic drinks will also be on the menu.

Our long term commitment will be providing on-going training to maintain standards, ensuring our guests have a great experience with us as well as beautiful, healthy hair.

By supporting us you can become part of our academy journey and community.  You can receive updates and success stories where both students, salons and colleges have benefitted from the success of our academy.  We will also hold open evenings where we invite our supporters to come and meet the team and enjoy some complementary pampering.  If you have a passion for the next generation and would like to become a helping hand in supporting young adults - please support us in getting this project off the ground.  If anyone reading this crowd funder can go the extra mile and send the link to as many people as possible it really will give us the best chance of hitting our target and moving forward with plans to open.

5% of money raised will go to a charity very close to my heart which is Shelter - I`ve made many friends who were homeless when we met over the last 12 years and they are amazing people.  Some will remain close friends of mine for life for which I am very grateful.  Life can be so hard and people fall through the cracks for all sorts of reasons so Shelter is a great charity to support.  If this crowd funder is successful then the academy will continue to support the charity with £1 from every intensive treatment purchased being donated.
