Academy Director & Educator

Hairdressing is embedded in Hitesh’s ancestry, his great grandfather, grandfather and father were all hairdressers in India. His father was well known and trained many people. As a child Hitesh would wonder at his Father’s skill and creativity when working on ladies and gentlemen’s hairstyles. Years later Hitesh and and all three of his brothers were inspired to learn the family craft.
By the time Hitesh was 16, he had mastered a basic cut, and he always thought it was something he would “fall back on” if he wasn’t inspired to follow a different career path.
He finished high school and went on to complete a degree in computer and business studies, the launch of a successful computer business in India followed in quick succession.

A few years later in 2005, destiny presented Hitesh with the opportunity to visit England to attend a higher education course.  He worked in a computer software company for a few months, but he soon realised he missed the creativity of hairdressing and took on a part-time role in a family owned hairdresser. It was there, that his creativity flowed and he began to thrive and his true passion for hairdressing was ignited. He decided to settle in the UK and develop his creative skills, training at TONI&GUY, were he earned himself an excellent reputation in the industry and forged an award winning career.


Academy Director & Educator

From the age of 19, Jay was fascinated with the transformations that regularly occurred in the hair & beauty salon she worked in part-time, whilst studying at Sixth Form. She would see customers visiting for a hair cut or beauty treatment and loved how they looked when they left. She didn’t only observe the obvious aesthetic changes, but also how confident and happy clients seemed to be as a result of a hair or beauty treatment. She knew then that she wanted to learn the skills to make people feel like that too. So, once she completed her sixth form studies, she began to forge a career in the beauty industry, making it her mission to learn as much as she could about quality and innovative beauty treatments.

In the years that followed Jay worked hard as a Beauty Therapist and trained as an approved Beauty Trainer. She met and married Hitesh and soon had their son. Despite business being hit hard during the 2009 recession, Jay was determined to succeed, and her never waining optimism helped her to build a successful beauty business in Banbury. 

Keen to follow her dreams, Jay decided to focus on training at the highest level in innovative beauty and aesthetic treatments and to gain qualification in teaching, to enable her to open a professional beauty salon and Training Academy.

Jay’s goal has remained constant since that first part-time job at just 19 years old – to make her clients feel amazing and put a spring in their step and also to share her wealth of knowledge with the next generation of beauty technicians and aesthetic practitioners.

CPD accredited

In order to comply with new legislation, Jay is currently studying to gain her level 7 qualification in aesthetics and injectables.
