I trained at East Surrey College, completing a 3-year course in hair and beauty. I achieved my Level 3 qualification alongside various advanced Wella colour courses, and was rewarded with the Student of the Year award. My first job was working for Cobella in Mayfair, which was fronted by Beverly Cobella. I gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of hair, including big hair shows.
Cobella then opened a salon in Kensington, where I worked in an exciting fashion environment. Soon afterwards, I became manager of Cobella in the spa at the County Hall Marriott hotel in Westminster, where I stayed until I decided to go freelance.
