Sophie Etell

Prior to completing the 30 week Advanced Hair and Makeup course, I worked in a salon as a hairdresser, completing colouring, cutting and styling services. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to gain experience and work with wonderful teams at the National Film and Television School and The Royal College of Music. I am extremely passionate about my career and I have a friendly, enthusiastic and happy personality, whilst maintaining a professional attitude at all times. I am keen to learn new things and love working with new people
