How did I do it?

The passion I have for business and love for what I do and the self-belief in myself and my brand kept me positive and going and I got support and help from re-educating myself in Business, and management along with my skill. As a hairdresser/barber or beauty therapist, we love to create but with business, comes so much more and trying to find the balance can be hard.. I had to find help – and it was at times hard to find! 


I can work with you in your salon on a 1 –  2 day programme, you can come to me, or I can be on hand via phone and email to help and assist. We can mix and match our workshop content for this or you can inform me what areas you want covered and I can design the programme to suit this. This makes it exclusive to you and your needs.

What my clients say

I have worked with Joan on a number of business classes in a local women in business group we formed and her knowledge is outstanding, from her understanding of business and management to implementing these into salons to help them is just amazing. I feel Joan is real, down to earth and makes it fun while engaging with the people she is working with. The methods and techniques we all learn from her workshops helped our businesses so much and I would highly recommend you to speak with her on what she offers and how her methods and training can help you, your salon and your team.

“ I sent one of my trainee stylists to Joan to finish off her cutting training on Allures Advanced cutting course and am absolutely delighted with the training Megan received. Its given her the confidence to now cut on the salon floor and I got reports from Joan of Megan's Progress every day she attended the course. Great service Thanks to Joan and the Team.
