Graduating from The Iver Makeup Academy having completed the Advanced Certificate in Hair and Makeup Artistry I have gained in confidence and responsibility which has helped me in working well under pressure as well as within a team. I am seeking Hair and Makeup Trainee Job opportunities and being an excellent self-starter, I am keen to learn how things work and how things can be achieved either through experience or problem solving as I sure do love a challenge !!
