Beginning with an apprenticeship in 1981 at Birmingham College of food Tourism and Creative studies, I gained my City and Guilds certification in both hairdressing and advanced hairdressing for ladies and gents.
Over the next 8 years I worked in a number of salons around Birmingham, Nottingham and the West Midlands. During this period I entered a number of competitions, which was not only great fun but gave me the chance to design and show a number of my creations. I am very pleased to say I gained first prize on more than one occasion.
I decided to return to my home town of Birmingham and took up a position at the Metropole Hotel based at the National Exhibition Centre. This gave me the opportunity to meet a number of celebrities making use of the salon services before appearing at this prestigious venue.
12 years in the industry and having reached the position of salon manager it became clear to me that my next step must be to open my own salon and in 1994 RAGE located in Castle Bromwich became a reality.
It was a delight to see this salon boom, however, we quickly outgrew the facility and the opportunity to move in to larger premises in Tamworth Staffordshire resulted in a successful move
In early 2007 with a personal move to live in Worcestershire I decided to open a new salon in Tewkesbury Gloucestershire and this opened its doors in June of that year.
