Shair by Shannon

Shannon Johnston is the owner of Shair by Shannon in Auchinleck and a new employer.  She approached East Ayrshire Works enquiring about Wage Subsidy funding to support a new Trainee seeking to utilise her qualifications in Hairdressing.  Over the past 6 months, Trainee Morgan Benn has been building up her portfolio and is popular with her new clients. 

Due to new trends and an increase in request for services, both Shannon and Morgan wanted to offer existing and new customers new and bespoke services in the area.  Therefore both Trainee and Employer accessed funding to gain the “HTS Certified Hair Extensions Specialist CPD Certification” via the 7 Method Hair Extension Course at Red Hair Salon in Kilmarnock with Marie Kay @HTSRed and Laurie Hume Training. 

Morgan says: “East Ayrshire Works has been absolutely brilliant!! They have funded 100% of my training which is absolutely amazing as it has helped me in so many ways.  With this I will be able to progress in building up my clientele.  They have been so helpful and the process of it all has been very quick.  Couldn’t recommend them more”.

Shannon says:  "I can’t recommend East Ayrshire Works enough! Sheila was absolutely brilliant and funded 70% of my training and 100% of my employee Morgan’s training.  It is such a great help for my business and a very quick process. They could not have been any more helpful.  If you’re looking for funding for courses for yourself or employee’s go to East Ayrshire Works.  Brilliant!”
