Meet the latest member of the Skills Group Team, Holly Counter, who has joined our Beauty department to teach Beauty Therapy. Holly comes with a wealth of industry experience, delivering treatments to a range of clients from boutique salons through to 5* Spa environments. She started out her own journey at 18 where she completed a Beauty Therapy Qualification.
Holly always knew she wanted to work within the Beauty industry and set out to work her way up the career ladder, she gained experience through local salons and was quickly promoted to Supervisor at the Lemon Tree Beauty salon at just 20 years of age. She then progressed on to manage a team of therapists at the Ivy Beauty Rooms.
Holly’s most recent role was Head Therapist at the prestigious Bovey Castle Spa, “I felt like trying a different direction with my career as I wanted to give back by teaching others what I have learnt throughout my career within the Beauty Industry”.
“My advice to anyone wishing to get into the business would be to get practical hands-on experience, its great at Skills Group as the learners have regular clients to the city centre salon where they can practice the treatments they have learnt in their training sessions.”
You can meet Holly by enrolling on a taster session for Beauty Therapy Level 2.
