Jayne Beckett

Jayne launched a Tanning, Beauty and Hair Salon in June 2006, despite working full-time at the time. Initially, she offered beauty and tanning treatments, with her daughter, a qualified beautician taking the lead, along with other staff.

In January 2008 she was offered redundancy and decided to return to college to study hairdressing so she could open the hairdressing side of the business.

Jayne said: “I applied and couldn’t believe I got an interview. I felt like a schoolgirl again – that feeling of nervousness might put some people off, but if you want something enough you’ll go for it.” Jayne hopes to take further courses in September. She is currently working alongside Jodie Adams, previously of John English Hairdressing, to get hands-on experience in her own salon.

She added: “If anyone is thinking about changing career, I’d tell them to go for it! Even if you are working full-time don’t let it stop you. A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.”
