Hi everyone, my name is Colum Cooke and I am the Manager and a Stylist at Colum Cooke Hair & Beauty. I have been in the Hairdressing Industry and running my own salon for 28 years where I specialise in all aspects of Cutting, Colouring & Up-styling. I lecture part-time at NWRC where I pass on my passion and knowledge of hair to students in order to help them start their own career. I have just completed my HND Level 4 in Hair & Beauty Management and I am currently in the process of completing a HND level 5, it is important to me as an educator that I keep up to date in all aspects of Hair & Beauty Management. I have recently taken on the exciting position as Head of Education for Fanola UK & Ireland where I work closely with other talented educators to help train Stylists on the wide range of Fanola products, Fanola Colour and Cutting. I keep up to date with the emerging trends within the Hair & Beauty Industry and pass on my skills and techniques through organising Cutting, Colouring and Up-styling Courses in the salon. My passion and excitement for hair has continued to grow and I look forward to many more years in the amazing industry.
