Meet Vanessa, our Fast Track hair alumni and superstar hairdresser at Tremayne Salon. We chatted to her about her time studying with us and her career after The Masters! Watch our interview with her below and read on to find out more about her time at The Masters!
What did you study and why did you choose our HeadMasters college?
I studied HeadMasters Fast Track SHB30416 Certificate III Hairdressing. I’ve always loved hair and the feeling of making someone feel beautiful makes me happy! I was drawn to The Masters specifically because they offered the Fast Track option through their hair college, HeadMasters. It was such a good decision because it was very consistent. I sometimes find it hard to start something and finish it the week after, because I tend to forget or lose my rhythm. But being in the Fast Track meant that I could start something and go back to school the next day and finish it. It was also good for me because it was only one year.
I’m so glad I chose The Masters because they gave us so many industry opportunities! We got to get involved in so many events and workshops. It really helped put into perspective the hair industry and what I wanted to do (and also what I didn’t want to do!).
What do you love about hairdressing?
I love making people feel beautiful! It’s so rewarding to see someone feel so good about themselves. I’m so grateful to be working at Tremayne—the team is full of such lovely people who are so open to sharing their knowledge and helping me grow as a hairdresser. I think it’s really rare to come across such a talented, caring team—I feel very lucky!
What advice would you give to someone considering studying hairdressing?
It was the best decision I’ve ever made! It sounds cliche, but if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. For me, I never feel like I’m working!
*HeadMasters is a college of The Masters Institute of Creative Education
