Zoe began her journey into the beauty industry at the age of 13 when she was employed as a Saturday girl in a salon. Within a couple of years she enrolled onto a NVQ Level 1 Hairdressing course in 2001 whilst undertaking work experience at Taco Hair Designers.
She continued to develop her personal skills set by studying Level 2 Beauty, Level 3 Beauty, Level 2 Hair and Level 3 Nails at Havering College, gaining all qualifications by 2007. Zoe has worked in various salons including Claridges Tanning & Beauty where she stayed for 6 years working full time, gaining invaluable experience before making the transition as a mobile therapist then renting a small salon.
She started working as a Nail Tutor for Debut Academy in 2016 whilst gaining her Level 3 in Education & Training. In 2017 she passed her Level 3 Certificate in Assessing, in addition to her Internal Quality Assurer qualification. Zoe has also completed training in Level 3 Anatomy & Physiology, Lycon Precision Waxing, Sienna X Tanning, Elemis, Dermalogicia, Dip & Buff and Hair Extensions, Electric Filing and Russian Lashes.
Although Zoe’s teaching commitments have reduced, this has made way for her new promotion to Deputy Head of Apprenticeships, working alongside Helena to support applicants making a transition into apprenticeship placements in salons or spa’s locally. Her responsibilities include assisting with aspects of the apprenticeship programme at Debut, moderating data and visiting apprentices in the workplace. Zoe is currently completing a Level 3 Team Leading qualification.
