Katherine Mee | Assessor, verifier & training coordinator.

I have been with the KH Hair group for 15 years having previously held a training position in a large salon group in the NW of England and re-located to the East Midlands where I now hold a full time position delivering and assessing customer service level II, hairdressing NVQ level II with teaching experience totalling 18 years.

Helen Deacon | Assessor

I have hairdressing experience of over 25 years having worked in several hairdressing locations throughout the south of England. After re-locating to the Midlands, I joined the KH Hair group in 2003 as a trainer then gained my assessor qualifications.

I have been in the training environment for the past 12 year. I work in the training salon with the 2nd year trainee stylist and graduate stylists. I enjoy working in the training environment with young trainees whilst also having client interaction with the models in a commercial salon environment.

Emma Coleman | Trainer

I have hairdressing experience of over 15 years having initially trained with the KH Hair group at the Lichfield salon where I worked for three years. I then moved down south working for a large salon group in different locations, following this I moved to Germany where I continued my hairdressing.

Having return to the UK I approached the KH Hair Training Academy as I wanted to pursue a career in training. I have been in my current position for over two years during which I gained my assessor qualifications.

I work with the 2nd trainee stylist and graduate stylists in the training salon. I love to see the progression of the student throughout their journey in training and feel passionate when it comes to being creative with the clientele.

I started as a trainee at the Ashbourne salon over 15 years ago where I worked as a stylist and then moved to a management position at the Chesterfield salon. I took a year off work to start a family and on my return I decided to take a different career path end wanted to move into training.

I started my current position of trainer over two years ago when I also in the time achieved my assessor qualifications. I work in the training salon with the 2nd year trainee stylists training and assessing hairdressing level II.
