Simone Hockey - Manager

Simone is McCarthy's leading lady at our Blackwood salon. With over 25 years experience, Simone really knows the industry well. Upon qualifying as a hairdresser, Simone joined the McCarthy's team where she started off life as a stylist before graduating to manageress.

During her time at McCarthy's Simone has been on quite a journey. She has achieved NVQ Level 3 and attended Ystrad Mynach College to further train at foundation degree level and obtained a PGCE.  She now uses this qualification to support and coach not only her own team but the teams of colleagues at McCarthy's Ebbw Vale and Crickhowell salons.

She has also been lucky enough to train down in London at Clynol's ASK Academy and take part in many salon based course which are also ran by the hairdressing brand. She feels that in a fast changing industry which moves with fashion trends it's important to keep on top of these things.

Simone loves working at McCarthy's and has a strong based clientele who have also become close friends of hers over the years. She is lucky enough that she still enjoys coming to work every day just as much as she did 25 years ago as each day is an exciting new challenge for her.
