Stavroula (Stavi) Topouzi came to Britain from Greece five years ago with the dream of opening her own beauty therapy business.
After starting the hair and beauty pathway at Banbury and Bicester College, she secured a work placement at the Cowshed Spa, part of the exclusive Soho House Members’ Club. She provides a broad range of beauty therapies including massages, manicures, facials and waxing and has treated A-list celebrity clients so famous that she’s not allowed to divulge their names!
Stavi explains how studying with Activate Learning has boosted her career:
“My work placement is at the Cowshed Spa, Soho Farmhouse. I am a beauty therapist and I provide a range of services including waxing, facials, and massages. Everything is holistic.
“I often work with A list celebrity clients. I don’t get starstruck; I act naturally around them and listen to their needs.
“The college has given me the confidence that I need to do well. My Level 3 tutor, Denise Porter, has really encouraged me, and when I finish studying here I want to start up my own business.”
