Holly Browne

Diploma of Beauty Therapy & and Dual Certificate III Beauty

Hello, I’m Holly! I’ve been a Beauty Therapist for 17 years. During that time, I have worked in many Day Spas and Beauty Salons – both in Australia and overseas. I have started my own salon, freelanced as a Makeup Artist and competed in Beauty Therapy competitions which have taken place around the globe. 

I gained so much valuable experience as a therapist, I became a trainer and assessor so I could mentor budding therapists and continue working with people. I have been teaching beauty for 10 years and have managed two beauty RTOs and a makeup academy. I have also worked as an International Spa trainer, where I got to visit 5-star day spas around the globe to train and upskill therapists.

I love being creative, being organised and creating a fun learning environment for my students. I am grateful for my career choice. I love my job and the endless opportunities this industry can offer you.

I take tremendous pride in inspiring young hairdressers. In the classroom, I love creating an environment that is inclusive to everyone. I get great joy from mentoring apprentices and helping them grow into capable and confident professionals.


Rachel Holmes

Certificate III Hairdressing

I began a Hairdressing and Beautician course when I was 15 years old, I ended up getting a tea and tidy job which led me into the pathway of my apprenticeship in hairdressing of over 30 years now. I’m extremely passionate about colour, I feel like if it moves it should be coloured so needless to say my little dog has had some colour experiences from me, not sure if he liked them. I’m excited about fulfilling your training needs and hope to bring a little vibrance into the classroom.
