Meet The Trainer - Amy Dommett
We wanted to get to know some of the amazing Flirties trainers, so we sat down for a chat with the wonderful Amy Dommett!
Where are you based?
I am based in Cullompton, Devon (near Exeter) but I cover Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and parts of Dorset.
When did you first enter the beauty industry?
I started not that long ago, it was January 2013.
What made you become a trainer?
I loved just how much this industry has changed my life, and how many opportunities it has given me in such a short time. It opened so many doors for me and I feel it has made such a difference to my family and me, so I wanted other people to experience this too.
I want them to do what they love and are passionate about and enjoy the flexibility and financial freedom. There is nothing nicer than getting up in the morning and look forward to the day rather than feel you HAVE to go to work.
When I started I have received some bad training and this made me more determined to be a great teacher and offer students the best training they could get. Some courses seem to be ok on the day but then you are left to your own devices without any support or aftercare and I love keeping in touch with students to see them improve and progress from booking their very first course to the very highest skill level!
What treatments are your favourites?
I offer various treatments and courses but Lashes and Brows are my favourites – actually I LOVE anything to do with lashes!
What courses do you offer?
- Semi permanent eyelash extensions
- Russian volume lashes
- Express lashes
- Lash lift and tint
- Precision brows
- Facial waxing
- Lash and Brow Tinting
What one piece of advice would you give to someone who is training?
Keep going and don’t give up! It's really hard at times but if it was easy then everyone would be doing it, right? Once you pass and achieve what you set out to do you know you will be amazing! Sometimes it might feel that it is impossible but the training and guidelines for passing are high standard so that you know you are going to be first class when you pass!
What treatment do you enjoy having done yourself?
I love having massages to relax.
What’s next for you?
I would like to take a step back from doing so many treatments in the salon and take the time to concentrate more on training and supporting the salon and academy with more marketing ideas and incentives.
