Lucy Atherton

  • Owner of The Beauty Establishment
  • Level 3 Diploma in Beauty Therapy

Lucy was really excited to join Hopwood Hall College after visiting an Open Day, experiencing the industry level facilities and really friendly staff.

Throughout her studies, Lucy knew she wanted to open her own salon and the College gave her the skills and confidence to take the next step and specialise in certain areas of beauty.

After working in several salons, Lucy opened her own in 2015 and in 2019, won the Greater Manchester Five Star Beauty Salon of the Year Award at the North West Beauty Industry Awards.

”My favourite bits from college were the friends I made, some of which are still my friends today. The whole Hair & Beauty floor was really friendly place to be.

“My advice would be to students is to take full advantage of any extra courses/work experience opportunities you get whilst at the college. I did a few that helped me add to my portfolio of skills and made me a more rounded Therapist.”
