Ruby Truman

Hairdressing, Level 2

Forest of Dean Campus

Beauty Therapy runs in the family! My nan runs a salon and I did a bit of work there. My mum is also a beauty therapist. I like doing nails, in fact, I started doing gel polish nails before I came to college to get experience in beauty. I enjoy doing waxing as well and I’ve found I’m really good at it.

College is very different to school, it’s bigger and we’ve got amazing facilities. The salon here is great with all the couches and trollies and products to use! I like getting clients into the salon and doing treatments.

My lecturers are nice and I get on well with them. It’s very helpful to have a nice group for socialising and more conversations about beauty because we help each other out.

I’ve applied for Level 3 Beauty at Gloucester Campus to learn about massage and tanning. Salons these days want people trained in Level 3 and I want to go and get a job in the salon. I’ve done a few courses outside of college so I'm fully qualified in acrylics and builder gel too – I'd like to open my own business as well so that’ll help me.
