Kirsty Jooste

Master Stylist, at Carlton Hair Constantia

“Joining the Carlton Hair Academy as a full-time student in 2005 gave me an opportunity to follow my dreams of being a hair stylist. Every day I was taught something new and my skill for doing blow dries, haircuts and colouring hair grew I knew I was doing what I always wanted to do. Ever since becoming a qualified hairstylist in 2007, the academy is still a place I call home. Attending as many courses to perfect my skill and improve my knowledge and understanding of hair in all aspects. Following my dreams and perfecting my skill every year has lead me to travel to places such as London, Paris, Bangkok and recently to Italy to compete as one of the top 20 stylists in the world for the Davines World Style Contest 2018.”

“I’ve been at Carlton hair for about 2 years now and I’ve been exposed to an entire new world of hair and beauty. A world where individuality is not only encouraged but celebrated. My goal when I started out as an apprentice was to learn how to use my creativity to make someone else feel and look beautiful, and this is exactly what my academy and my manager has done. Now, 2 years later, I have become the best version of myself, and a proud stylist at Carlton Hair Irene. Carlton has not only taught me the fundamental skills and rules of hairdressing, but has also changed the way I perceive and interpret the psychology behind someone else’s hairstyle. I cannot wait to see what potential Carlton Hair will tap into next.”
