    Today I’m here with gorgeous Emma.
     
    Emma is a senior stylist and has also just been promoted to our management team at our Holden Hill Salon. 

    Emma is actually our first ever apprentice that we have had from start to finish and we’re all very proud of her. Emma has been very patient and kind throughout the entire process and has understood all the steps, just taking them as they come. 
    Today we spoke about the process of completing a hairdressing apprenticeship and becoming a senior stylist. Take note of Emma’s incredible mindset. It takes an unwavering commitment to complete an apprenticeship and Emma knew this from the start.

    Victoria: Salon Grace

    Victoria: Salon Grace

    Today I’m meeting with my friend Victoria, owner of Salon Grace here in Adelaide.
    Victoria moved her salon during covid to a gorgeous, quiet and peaceful space in Stonyfell. 
    We spoke about her desire to be a hairdresser from a young age and getting started on her Cert II early. 
    We also spoke about the path to opening her first salon and her work later to engage a mentor and get some hard truths about business; as well as better herself in order to attract the right people to her space.
    Victoria is excited to work toward her goal of bringing passionate education to the hair academies and she would love to see our industry come together and raise the bar, a common theme in my most recent episodes. 
    Thank you Victoria!

    I have a very special episode that we are bringing to you. 
    We recorded this one at 11pm because I was speaking to a very special friend from Cha-am in Thailand. It was really incredible to get a chance to speak to someone from another country and I loved hearing about working on Asian hair and his fast social media growth. 
    This is definitely one of my favourite podcasts so far! 
    Thank you so much Toey.
