Apprentice to Stylist 


I’ve worked in Zeba from a first year trainee for 4 years to now 3 years qualified. It was the best choice I made to train in this salon as it gave me so many opportunities, working alongside some top Dublin stylists in Zeba, getting the chance to do a lot of courses in the L’Oréal academy, assisting a few world class hairdressers like Sophia Hilton. Getting the encouragement and guidance from the Zeba team to do  competitions like the IHF and the L’Oréal colour trophy star award, getting onto the L’Oréal innovation team which meant I was over and back to London a few times for training which was unreal and also getting the chance to do photo shoots and more. It was definitely not an easy 4 years of training you have to put in the work to get what you want out of it but the team atmosphere gets you through it because everyone is so much fun
