Salon Owner, AJM Hair.


  1. Salon Owner, AJM Hair.

  2. Creative Make Up Design and Practice - Foundation Degree (FdA).

  3. Croxteth Community Comprehensive School.

  4. Within the next 5 years I would like to open another salon, to be working within TV and Film and to be teaching part time.

Andrew said:

The Degree has helped to increase my knowledge within the industry I already work, especially when I am working on photoshoots, I am now employed as makeup artist as well as a hairstylist.

As a mature student, I enjoyed the whole environment of being back in education. It was nice to have tutors that were on the same level as me, especially in our respective careers. The passion for the subject from all the tutors on the course is very apparent and one of the reasons I am returning to do the final year.

Andrew's advice:

Do it, enjoy it and accept the help that is there for you.
