Meet the owner

My name is Carol Hendrie and I am the owner of Professional Salon Training. I have such passion for the beauty industry and love what I do! Beauty therapists (and hairdressers) have the most rewarding careers it has been stated. I couldn’t agree more!

I gained my HND Beauty Therapy Qualification in 2001 from Central College of Commerce to allow me to work in an industry I loved. Since then I have worked continually to increase my skills and qualifications yearly by attending University (distance learning), nail and beauty courses, seminars, workshops and trade events.

15 years working in the beauty industry has made my career evolve and it continues to be a rewarding vocation.

Where it all began

My journey started in 1998 by doing night classes at college while working on cosmetic counters specialising in make-up. I worked in salons then went on to become a Business Manager for Clarins, beauty manager at The McDonald Inchyra hotel before becoming a salon owner in Falkirk for nearly 4 years. It was then when I specialised in acrylic and gel nail extensions as well as providing beauty treatments.

I started teaching in 2003 at Forth Valley College whilst running my salon. After nearly 4 successful years in business a full time teaching opportunity arose in one of Scotland’s leading Colleges and I was the happiest girl alive when I got offered the full time position! Since 2006 I have gained the assessor and verifier award before developing my academic skills further completing a Degree in Professional Development (BAPD) at Aberdeen University whilst working in 2016 following on from my teaching qualification (TQFE) in 2011.

Nail, Beauty and Make-up Courses in Falkirk

The passion, experience and skills I have gained in the beauty industry and academically over 15 years has lead me to this point. I love teaching nails and beauty and find it so rewarding to see people achieve personal goals. I have taught thousands of students over the years and believe I can give you the best experience possible. I want to make you the best you can be through guidance and support even after you have trained. Whether it is to start a brand new career or to develop new or previously learned skills I can help you on your journey. The unique teaching experience I will provide is delivered to a small group with a maximum of 8. This ensures the learning experience is of a high quality, attention to detail and it will allow each individual to have the support they require to develop their skills.
