Meet Your Trainers

Claire Taylor (founder of Taylored For You)

Taylored For You started almost 11 years ago as I felt there was a gap in the market for professional beauty training carried out on a one-to-one basis or smaller groups, tailored to the individual’s abilities and requirements. Since then, the business has grown and I have helped numerous therapists set up their own successful businesses.

I have worked in the Beauty industry for over 30 years, and have worked in both Salons and Spas, as well as my own mobile and home-based salon business. For the last 18 years I have been training in nails and beauty. I offer my wealth of knowledge to prepare you for your new career or new addition to your business.

I have always loved being an independent trainer. I have met like-minded people who share the same drive and enthusiasm for the Beauty industry, hence the wonderful team of highly experienced trainers that have joined my team. You can be assured that you will receive the highest level of training with back up and support for as long as you need it after your course has been completed.

Alison Wolfenden Jones 

I began my therapy career back in 1992.  I’m a Sports Therapist, Beauty Therapist, and Hairdresser.  I have a HND in Management, Certificate in Education and Level 7 Diploma in Strategic management and Leadership.   I trained in Mid Wales in Sports Therapy, Beauty Therapy and Hairdressing in the 90’s. I owned and managed a busy salon in Llandrindod Wells from 1998-2006

I moved into teaching in 2001 and have had a few jobs teaching in Further Education colleges and privately. I currently work from a home based salon in Penybont near Llandrindod Wells.  I teach specialist treatments such Chemical Peels, Dermaplaning and Microblading. I love sharing my experience in the industry with girls and women that have the same passion for it as me

Lisa Evans 

I have been part of the innovative, fast moving industry of Nails and Beauty for the past 8 years.  My ultimate passion is Nails. With every new skill acquired I have practiced at every given chance to enhance my skills. In 2013 I started entering competitions picking up guidance and even more skills along the way and in 2014 placing 2nd within the Permanent Polish Category at Beauty UK, giving me the urge to continue travelling around the country competing nationally, in which I will continue to do so.

From a previous position of 7 years gaining teaching experience under supervision, I decided that I eventually wanted to teach my passion to others who wanted to enter this industry. In September 2014 I passed my PTLLS Level 4 enabling me to start the next chapter of my profession.

I am very excited to be working with and alongside Claire Taylor at Taylored For You. I first met Claire after completing my Level 3 Nail Qualification as I was looking to train using Gel Polish. I can only say it started there and Claire has continually fed my passion over the years with her continued professionalism answering any questions I had even after hours, a true informative professional and very much looking forward to meeting new passionate individuals and sharing our knowledge

Michelle Linney

With more than 10 years experience Michelle started in Makeup as a stage TV & film artist working on various stage and TV productions often working closely with celebrities. The celebrity connection didn’t end there as she went on to work as a retail artist at MAC on the Kings Road, Chelsea. Michelle is really passionate about the inspiration, the creativity and imagination that make up can give, and it’s great fun too.

Samantha Maunder 

I have been in the beauty industry for almost 10 years, and have worked in a variety of roles over the years, including 5* spas, high street salons & then opened my own business renting a room in a hair salon 8 years ago.

In 2018 I decided to set up from home, and now enjoy serving my clients from my little home salon. While I am a general beauty therapist, I absolutely love everything skincare related! I’m a real skin geek!

I have always tried to keep up to date with my skills & have done lots of additional training with Taylored For You myself to enhance my business through the years. I always knew I wanted to share my passion for the industry with others, and decided in 2019 to take the plunge to become a trainer. I love being able to share my knowledge & industry tips and tricks with all of our students, and helping them launch and expand their own businesses.
