FROM THE SALON TO PARIS FASHION WEEK: NORTHERN IRELAND’S LEADING HAIRDRESSING GROUP CELEBRATES STYLIST’S SUCCESS FOLLOWING APPRENTICESHIP WEEK
Peter Mark, one of Northern Ireland’s best known and longest established hairdressing groups, is celebrating the success of one of its leading ‘Masters of Hair’ and senior educators Nadine Quinn, who left the Peter Mark training academy in Dublin last week for the runways at Paris Fashion Week to style the latest Spring/Summer hair trends hitting the catwalk.
The unique opportunity offered to Nadine comes as the cutting edge hairdressing brand, which has seven salons across Northern Ireland, recently celebrated National Apprenticeship Week (9-13 March 2015). Hot on the heels of apprenticeship week, Peter Mark is pledging 20 spaces on their training programme at the Peter Mark Academy for 2015.
From Belfast to Balbriggan, would-be stylists who attend the academy from across the island of Ireland will undertake a 3 year on and off-the-job training programme. Delivered by highly experienced colourists and stylists like Nadine, trainees will receive expert training to help them succeed in their career.
Nadine Quinn, senior educator, for Peter Mark, said: “Working backstage at Paris Fashion Week on the Haider Ackermann show is a hairdresser’s dream come true. The experience is unbelievable and I can only thank Peter Mark for helping to develop my skills and giving me the chance to pass on my knowledge and train future stylists in Northern Ireland. The expertise and experience I have received during my career with Peter Mark has opened up many doors for me. I’d urge anyone thinking of career in hairdressing to consider Peter Mark.”
Peter Wilkinson, Area Manager for Peter Mark, commented: “The Peter Mark Training Academy puts apprentices through a rigorous training programme to help nurture the future Masters of Hair.
“As one of our trainees, you will be able to see the difference in your career from the outset and pave your own path to success. Our in-house training is conducted by our top stylists and educators, including Nadine, and they deliver training modules in the latest techniques in style, colour, cutting and trend.”
