I have been working in the hairdressing industry for over 6 years now, not as a hairdresser though. Having been exposed to fashion and beauty made me look at them from a different perspective and I wanted to get involved in them but did not know how until around 2 years ago. It was when I saw a beauty retouching tutorial on YouTube. I fell in love instantly with the concept and wanted to pursue it further.
I did a few courses and purchased professional training DVDs from well known retouchers. I spent hours upon hours after my day job training to perfect my skills. Only now though do I feel like I have enough knowledge and skills to be able to think of doing it more professionally. I know it will take me ages to get to where I want but I have never been more determined in my life.
I would love nothing more than to collaborate with professional and aspiring photographers looking for beauty or fashion retouchers.
Oh, did I mention I am also a very nice person
