Through intensive NVQ training, her passion and dedication to the craft, she quickly progressed from a trainee to a Senior Hairstylist and Colourist.

Monika has been in the creative image industry for over 20 years now. In this time she has worked in salons in Surrey and London, including Chelsea and Belgravia and catered to a vast variety of clientele including few celebrities and a member of the Royal Family.

She assisted on and art-directed many photo-shoots and short films. Her creative touch has also reached people in Los Angeles and more recently in Singapore, where she worked on a film set as a stylist, doing hairstyling and make-up for the entire film crew.  Her futuristic fashion collection worn but the actors also featured in the film.

After gaining the required skills and achieving her high professional standards in hairdressing, she went on to pursue one of her other dreams and achieved a degree in Fashion Design with distinction. This degree course further expanded her knowledge and passion for the image and fashion industry.
