Personal Statement from Poppy Tremain – Level 3 Hair Apprentice
I started at HAHA hair academy in 2013 after deciding that my previous career wasn't right for me. I'm quite a creative person and I've always had such a flare for hairdressing since a young age, and coming from an all girl family I have always been experimental on the others.
I decided to do hairdressing at a later age as I thought it would be an amazing opportunity for me to get in to and would lead me on to further my dream as a hairdresser.
I then discovered HAHA hair academy and thought they were most suited to get me to where I wanted to be. HAHA Academy helped me find my first salon 'Pretty Green Natural Salon' back in 2013 which was a really good salon to kick start my career as a hairdresser and helped build my confidence up.
I've now been hairdressing for 2 years and have never looked back. Always being given opportunity by both my training academy and salon to progress and enter competitions and training courses up in London and attending award evenings.
Since Being an Apprentice with HAHA Hair Academy completing my Level 2 and currently finishing my level 3 in hairdressing I have achieved many goals and faced many challenges that they have set me.
Some of them being; The winner of the internal competitions and being entered into the Blackpool National hair finals both in 2014 and 2015 both placing 4th & 5th out of 50 contestants. Both entering for the Avant Garde/ fantasy sector. I'm also attending upcoming men’s barbering courses with HAHA in the future to add to my salon services.
I was entered into the hair and beauty awards 2014 for Junior Stylist and Apprentice of the year. This gave me more drive and motivation to expand in my training with HAHA and was honoured to be nominated again this year.
I have also in my Salon 'Medusa' been sent off on a variety of courses up in the Goldwell academy and has helped me gain more confidence and experience in the hairdressing industry and I thrive on attending upcoming courses. I thank my Salon 'Medusa Hairdressing' for giving me the opportunity's and having faith in me to do so.
I am currently on shop floor in my salon as a graduate junior stylist working a full time week running a back to back column every day and have built up a reliable consistent clientele. My services I provide go from colouring, cutting, hair ups and added services available in the salon, My favourite area in hairdressing I love is colour and in the future id love to focus on training courses in helping me climb the ladder to being a colour technician and expanding my knowledge in colour.
I'm so glad I took the opportunity to become a hairdresser and I actually love knowing that I'm doing something I love and feel so passionate about day in day out, and no for certain that I will never look back. I have HAHA Hair academy to thank for opening these doors for me and finding me placement of work and the opportunities they have given me and making me feel comfortable as a student. By far the best training academy in Hampshire and would highly recommend to anyone that wanted first class training!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
