Cheryl-Ann Long BABTAC CTHA
I am passionate about the beauty industry and have worked in it for over 35 years. I started working in health spas and salons in and around London at some of the most prestigious hotels and spas before working on cruise ships and getting to travel the world whilst working and gaining knowledge of some of the best skincare brands in the industry.
After returning home I then started working in retail and was involved in training, travelling around the country helping to build retail sales and client confidence with therapists.
I then worked in Further Education Colleges teaching, assessing and moderating a range of beauty therapy and holistic courses from entry level to level 4 qualifications. I liaised with local schools and lead the delivery of the beauty therapy programmes both here and in the college I was working at.
I always maintained a passion for the industry both the education and training of others but also offering exceptional client care and treatments for the well being of others.
This then led me to return full circle to opening my business, Long Poppy and now being able to offer my own accredited training courses.
Over 27 years experience in Make-up Artistry and a wealth of industry experience including magazine work with Marie Claire, Style and Woman. Fashion Shows such as London Fashion Weeks and British Fashion Awards and worked with a wealth of celebrities, Channel 5, BBC and MTV to name just a few others. I am an experience media make-up lecturer and have taught in further education colleges and private academies for over 14 years. I am able to tailor make-up to any specifications and use premium brands. As a Bridal specialist I have worked on many society weddings and with society clients.
