Erica Coppinger, Salon Manager
I have 10 years’ experience in the industry and have been the Salon manager at Evolve for three years now. After travelling the world as a skin care trainer I wanted to put my experience into practice, so here I am!
It has been a wonderful journey so far and I have loved watching our client base continue to grow. I now specialise in Brows, lashes and nails and love keeping up with the latest trends and techniques in the industry.
Leah Heathfield, Hair Stylist & Beauty Therapist
I am a Level 2 qualified hairdresser and beauty therapist. I studied this qualification at Shrewsbury College, as a full-time student and really enjoyed the experience as I got to work with real clients and put my professional side to the test! I am glad to be a part of the team and I am ready to further my career with the Level 3 hairdressing course, hopefully becoming a senior stylist. I enjoy both hair and beauty and am delighted I am offering treatments and services in both areas.
Lucy Wilde, Beauty Therapist
Before starting at Evolve I trained at Shrewsbury College to achieve a Level 3 in Complementary Therapies. I loved learning at the College and that gave me the opportunity to work closely with Evolve and eventually secure my role. During my training I worked hard to win the Student of the Year Award and the Vocational Award in the Hair & Beauty Department. I specialise in massage and reflexology and have brought Neal’s Yard into Evolve because I want to use the best products on the market. I enjoy using my knowledge to ensure my clients leave the salon feeling pampered and relaxed.
Debbie Drury, Hair Stylist
I have been a fully-qualified Level 3 stylist for 18 years. I previously worked at two local salons, providing a full range of hairdressing services. I am also a fully-qualified assessor and in the future would like to focus on assessing students. My favourite part of hairdressing is the transformation, giving my clients a confidence boost and making them happy.
I began my journey in hairdressing 18 years ago and I am very passionate about it, especially being able to make my clients feel confident about themselves and their hair. I am a qualified assessor, and am also qualified in teaching further education, where I can see the students’ progression. Being an assessor gives me the opportunity to watch my apprentices learn the skills and techniques needed to become experienced hairdressers. In the future I want to study beauty therapy and put my skills to the test.
