My name is Yvonne I’m from England originally but I’ve lived in The Netherlands for over 20 years. I have been in the Hair industry for over 30 years now and I have seen a lot happen in the respect that it has grown into an amazing world of individualism, inspiration and expression. I started my hairdressing career at the tender age of 16 and with a company who gave me the insight of what hairdressing was really all about I was given the best training ever to become a professional and established hairdresser. This was Andrew Collinge they gave me the grounded basics to become what I am today.
I grew up in the 80’s so my influence at that time was Punk, New romantic, Mod, Gothic and Pop. When I finished my training I knew that I wanted to express my influences in hair.
At the age of 19 I decided it would be better to move to London to further my career in this industry. I continued to learn more about colour and cutting and signed my self up to do courses with L’oreal, Wella, Sassoon, Toni&Guy and Headmasters. I have also attended competitions such as intern competitions for Andrew Collinge, young talent of the year Merseyside and in 2013 I was nominated for the Coiffure Award. I have worked with limitless amounts of talented people backstage for shows and shoots both in England and in the Netherlands.
I have also travelled with my job firstly as a hairstylist on board the biggest Cruise ships in the world at that time. This is where a got my taste for traveling and seeing the world for what it really is with it’s cultures, colours and natural beauty. Before I came to The Building I was an International Senior Educator for keune hair Cosmetics. I educated hairdressers all around the world to help them with their knowledge and technique with using keune products. This opened my eyes to see how much talented hairdressers there are around world who are hungry for education and want to strengthen their talent as much as possible and to really step beyond their own limits.
With this combination I have an unlimited amount of experience in my portfolio. As I have become a member of an amazing team “The building” I see the importance of how this projects on Client satisfaction, their need to be made comfortable and feel confident that they are going to get the best experience ever. With the good advice and high-level techniques that are given here this is most certainly the place I dream to work in.
