Yolanda is the director of Shillingford Theatrical Special Effects Hair & Media Makeup Mobile Salon. Her hairdressing career started when at fifteen and she trained and qualified as a unisex all-rounder hairdresser. At age Twenty Two I started barber trims and combining the two found both to be very therapeutic. As her skills developed Yolanda decided she’d like to open a salon. She attended to college, followed by a university course to study BA Hons Psychosocial Studies with Professional Studies. The course taught her a lot about the relationship between individual and society and helped her understand customer service. She stayed in education and enrolled on a Beauty Therapy Course. Her interest in beauty did not stop there and she became a volunteer in the college salon doing Beauty Therapy and Hairdressing, gaining customer service experience, business knowledge and other skills. After qualifying from a Theatrical Special Effects Hair & Media Makeup course she received her first media award for Outstanding Makeup.

EME recognises every person as a unique individual whose talents as well as beauty must be seen and appreciated. It is this quality that will make EME a success to become a household name. I am also looking forward to the fusion of hair & makeup fashion to the fashion designer collections that create an outstanding and Extreme Modelling Experience.
