Kayla Fisher

Certificate in Hair, Beauty and Grooming

Tai Poutini Polytechnic graduate Kayla Fisher says doing the Certificate of Hair, Beauty and Grooming is what landed her the job she loves.

Kayla graduated the programme in 2011 and was set up straight away with a hairdressing apprenticeship. She will sit her final exams early next year, when she will become a Senior Stylist.

“Anyone who is thinking about a career in hairdressing should do the course. Hairdressers in town look for the graduates and it’s what helped me get a foot in the door to the industry.”

Kayla applied for the New Zealand hairdressing young apprentice of the year in 2014 and, while she did not make it through to the finals, she says it was a good experience as the job has opened up a new world of possibilities for her future.
