I had big dreams and I could hear the West End calling.
I was a newly qualified hairdresser and I really wanted to work in Mayfair, one of the most expensive and exclusive neighbourhoods in London. I decided to do a trade test straight from college at an exclusive Mayfair salon. I was no way ready and as you can imagine I didn't get the job. Confidence was in the gutter. I had to go back and really study my craft to make sure I was well equipped for the next opportunity. It is better to prepare for opportunities and not have one then to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
