I have recently joined 'Salon Geek' and would like to mention, what a great website it is!!
I have been an Eyebrow Threading Specialist since the tender age of 10.....(yep, child labour lol)......My great grandmother had taught me how to Master the Art of Threading, having had 18 years experience in Threading, I feel that I am now in a position and feel that I am ready to share my skills and knowledge with all beauticians, who are looking to learn the Art of Eyebrow/Facial Threading :)
I look forward to making new 'salon geek' friends and learning something new from you all......as they say 'Everyday is a school day'.
I would like to open up a health and beauty school.I have been in the industry for over 10years and I love the health and skincare industry.
I have seen a gap for me to open up a beauty school here as there is not much competition and do see potential in doing so.
But where do I start?
What accrediataion do I need to open up a school.
I have done training for the eastern cape region for a product house-Thalgo.So I do have some training knowledge.
If some could assist me with this.I would really appreciate it as this is my goal/dream.

Hi there, I'm a hairdresser with 24 yrs experience
In the industry, I have owned a salon for over 17yrs,
Employing up to 19 staff at the one time, circumstances
Dictated I got out of the 2 level shop I was leasing, I had worked
There for 20 yrs. I did have another shop lined up and after a legal
Process to end my old lease, I had just got into the new shop
When things took a wrong direction- long story, but I'm now in limbo
With premises, myself and all the other stylist are freelancing from home
But it was only ment to be for 3/4 weeks...... 9 weeks later an I'm still in
No further forward, I believe it happened for a reason,
I love doing what I'm doing, iv got no stress, no liability, no hassle what so ever,
I don't worry, I don't rush everywhere I go, get to spend more time with my 3
Young kids, I'm fortunate that most of my clients ate staying with me regardless
As to were I do their hair, I'm now seriously considering converting my detached garage into a GORGOUS little salon, planning has bn granted for building, and it more & more looking like a blessing in disguise, iv joined the group in the hope that I can find someone who has set up at home.... Love all the wee story's on here x
