Shannon Evans is a Hairdressing Apprentice, currently working at Kidderminster’s Lisa Shepherd Salon, as Lisa Shepherd’s Personal Assistant, while studying for her Intermediate Apprenticeship in Hairdressing.
Shannon has always had aspirations to become a hairdresser and the apprenticeship route was ideal for Shannon, who wanted a hairdressing qualification, but also to be in employment and earn money at the same time. Shannon says, “I always wanted to be a hairdresser, to earn money and become independent, so I applied for an apprenticeship straight from school. One of the best salons in the country in Kidderminster, Lisa Shepherd, was where I wanted to work. I knew it would be very competitive but my determination has paid off. I love it, my favourite part is colouring and working alongside Lisa, who is one of Britain’s top colourists, is a fantastic experience.”
Lisa Shepherd has supported apprentices during the last twenty years, as she believes in raising the ‘stars of the future.’ Lisa says, “Shannon showed true grit and determination in securing her position with us. Her work in the salon is exceptional, she has a very professional attitude at work, and I see so much potential in her, I describe her as having ‘magic hands’. Assisting me at the salon and events is very intense, but Shannon almost reads my mind and everything is ready.”
Shannon is a fine example of a successful Kidderminster College apprentice. An Apprenticeship gives hands-on experience, a salary and qualifications while working, within a variety of industries, with some very prestigious companies.
