Jenna is our shining star! She is in her second year of her apprenticeship. She came to Pure straight from school and single handedly looks after the team and all the clients. Jenna has the driest, funniest sense of humour and keeps us on our toes. She reminds us of Saffy (Absolutely Fabulous ).
Jenna has 5 mothers at work to look after her and guide her through her training and we all think the absolute world of her. However don’t let that fool you that she isn’t experienced! She’s excelled so much in her training that she is busy doing our discounted student haircuts & colours.
We are so lucky at Pure to have Jo as part of our team every Friday. Jo is an Assessor for the apprenticeship programme at Colchester institute. Jo’s qualifications are never ending! She absolutely loves passing her knowledge on to others. Her quirky personality and passion not just for her teaching, but for the success of her students is testament to her.
Jo has a huge client base and works on her day off at Pure but that one day of her quirkiness and warm personality has such a positive effect on the team, clients and salon atmosphere.
