Sally Ward, Owner & Technical Director.
U.K Wide & International Ambassador
Hello. My name is Sally Ward, I am what you would call a vintage hairdresser as I have been in the industry since 1983.I started my career working as an apprentice in a salon with 11 other staff. I had to spend three hours a day travelling on buses. That’s how much I loved it.I completed my apprenticeship during the eighties, so the first areas I specialised in, were colour and perming!!. In 2000 I joined Weston College as a full time lecturer in Hairdressing. Whilst working as a lecturer I achieved various teaching qualifications, culminating in gaining my Certificate in Education. In 2010 I joined Toni & Guy as a an NVQ, Trainer / assessor. In 2011 I joined Aston & Fincher as a Technical educator. I was part of a team who were responsible for writing and delivering courses relating to various products and techniques.
In 2013 I started my own Business: HairEducator.
Throughout my career, I have taken the greatest pleasure in helping anyone new to the industry, along their career path. I also enjoy inspiring people from all areas of the hairdressing industry with my passion, knowledge, enthusiasm and experience.

I studied at Strode College, Somerset, where I gained a BTEC National Diploma qualification. In 2007 I gained my NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Hairdressing. I worked as both a Beauty therapist & Hairdresser, before deciding to concentrate on my Hairdressing career and my passion for Hair Colour. I am also state registered in hair dressing and have now applied to become a Master Craftsmen.I want to inspire others with my passion for hair, so I decided to specialise in Education. I graduated in July 2015 with a Level 4 Certificate of Education.I love to spend time with family and friends, especially walks along the beach. Durdle Door in Dorset being one of my favourite places. In my spare time I love to listen to music and read books.
