Wokingham hairdresser passes training with flying colours!

Great talent and a passion for hairdressing has enabled local girl Charlotte Wickham to make a resounding success of her chosen career.

Charlotte, 20, has successfully completed a training programme at Haringtons Wokingham salon which included attending specialist colouring courses at L’Oreal in London which she passed with distinction as well as two practical training sessions every week including an intensive theory programme.

During her training she,  along with the trainees from all the Haringtons salons,  are set projects and take part in inter salon competitions including our Annual H Awards judged by top celebrity hairdressers, where Charlotte was a winner in her year for the model she coloured and cut.

Having completed her NVQ 3 Charlotte began the final part of her training programme doing models every day for six weeks to prepare for her final test when she had to present eight finished looks in colour to her Education Manager and Haringtons Company Technical Director. She was successful and passed with flying colours.  Charlotte is now delighted to be a Colour Technician with Haringtons Wokingham.

Charlotte says “I have always been inspired by colouring and always felt that I wanted to specialise in this extremely creative side of hairdressing. Haringtons won through to the finals of the Loreal Colour Trophy at Grosvenor House this year and my dream is to represent the Wokingham salon in the very near future”

Haringtons Wokingham salon owner Anna Wilkinson says “I am really impressed with Charlotte’s commitment to succeed. She has worked exceptionally hard to achieve her status and I look forward to her continued success in the Wokingham Senior Team .”
