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 said: “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 said: “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.
