A HAIRDRESSER is hoping to be booked up after graduating and scooping a top industry award.

Stylist Leanne Dolman works at Klass Kutz salon on Cotmanhay Road.

She was named runner up of the Advanced Apprenticeship award handed out by the Nottinghamshire Training Network.

There were 170 nominated.

Leanne said: “I was pretty shocked when they said I was runner up. “There was so many other people up for it so I never thought I’d even come close.

“I’d had to go for a video interview before and I was really nervous so I didn’t think it had gone very well.”

Salon owner Carol Wheat said: “Leanne deserves all the praise she gets. “She’s a brilliant stylist, really hardworking and great with the customers.

“She’s a real asset to the salon and we love having her here.”

Leanne added: “I absolutely love my job.

“I love meeting new people all the time, getting to know regular customers and everything about it.”
