Owners of SNC Jo and Sarah are long time colleges turned friends, who have both had a passion for hairdressing from a young age. Short n Curly’s was the salon they both chose to learn this trade, Jo joining at age 18 followed by Sarah a few years later at age 15.
The previous owner Alf is a fantastic educator and was key to the salons amazing long future. Jo produced a high standard of work and trained way ahead of the required apprentice level. When Jo qualified, Sarah was by her side every step of the way to assist and learn from her friend. She still states today that Sarah was her “best apprentice”.
Sarah joined Jo on the salon floor a few years later with a high quality of work. With Jo’s strength in Colour application and theory alongside Sarah’s strength in cutting, they became the perfect duo.
Friends now of 21 years, you’d think these two bicker! Well you couldn’t be more wrong, ones weakness is anothers strength which makes this pair the perfect salon partners.
When Jo became manager, Sarah became assistant manager and were instantly offered to purchase the salon from Alf. They wanted to carry on the great work Alf had started in 1974 whilst continuing to build and shape the salons future. They decided to give the salon a modern feel…..SNC Hairdressing is born.
Finding a great apprentice is worth its weight in gold to us and is so much more than completing paperwork. What we learn as apprentices shape our future, not just for the individual but for the industry we work in.
At SNC we aim to not only give core knowledge in the fundamentals of hairdressing but to build your confidence, learn how to work as part of a team and understand your value as an apprentice.
Our training is all supplied in house by our team of trainers, our qualifications are supplied by UKTD/City & Guilds and our out of salon training commences at TIGI Academy London.
We supply learning for school leavers age 16-18 under a government-funded training scheme.
Hairdressing requires dedication, punctuality, efficiency, people skills, creativity and a bucket load of hard work.
SNC is a fantastic place to begin your career in Hairdressing. Jo and Sarah welcome you to learn this trade, just as they did, right here at SNC.
At Snc, we are always on the look-out for fantastic apprentices, if you would like to start your career with us, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
