Lori O’Hanlon, The Hair and Beauty Lounge

I always enjoyed playing with hair even as a child and knew hairdressing could be the career for me. I didn’t enjoy school and used to skive whenever I could. So as soon as I could leave school I did, and I started working as soon as possible – I didn’t want to be signing on.

Although I started working at a different salon, I started my Level 3 hairdressing apprenticeship with The Hair and Beauty Lounge. I like working. Doing my apprenticeship has helped me grow up. I enjoy being in the salon and working with the clients. I’m building up my clientele and now have a few of my own regulars. I’m earning my own money, and perhaps one day I’ll be running my own salon!
