Step Up & Shine winner trains at Not Another Salon

Not Another Salon owner, Sophia Hilton

We’ve been following closely the progress of HairClubLive supporter and NHF Step Up & Shine 2018 Winner Nicola Hamm. It’s her year being mentored and trained with Debbie G. As we’re sure you know from our reports Nicola has been extremely busy since winning the Step Up & Shine competition, and her latest outing was to spend time with another fellow HairClubLive supporter,  Sophia Hilton, at Sophia’s bright and bold  Not Another Salon. (NAS) Nicola attended a bleaching course to find out more about NAS inimitable way with colour. It was an opportunity for our girl to broaden her knowledge of bleaching at the training centre set up by NAS in response to requests from around the world for an insight into the techniques that the salon is so well-known for. And timely, too, as bleaching remains a popular hair trend. Nicola works at Escape Hair Lounge in Portsmouth and says she enhanced her bleaching skills by learning more about the process and the levels of lift used to create different tones. She also gathered advice on managing clients who have unrealistic expectations, as well as how to best deal with damaged hair and complaints. Phew! Quite a haul of info there.
Nicola says: “I’ve only ever had basic bleaching training in the past so being able to delve into the process that my clients are asking for more and more frequently was fantastic. I gained so much confidence from attending the course – from the client consultation stage to the actual application. Bleaching is a trend that’s here to stay so I know that I will be putting my new skills to the test for a long time to come.”
Well done, Nicola! We can’t wait to see what you’ll get up to for the rest of the year with Debbie G.
