Working Woman Wednesday: Meet the Lady who Launched her First Business at 17 Chole Walsh has been working hard since the age of 17 to be where she is today.

Chloe Walsh is the ultimate beauty queen, she is one talented cosmetic Make Up Artist. She loves this job but was not always sure what it was she wanted to do. Find out more…..

What did you want to be when you were younger?

A hairdresser or an air stewardess!! I think I changed what job I wanted to do every week, but those two I can really remember begging my mum and dad telling them that’s what I wanted to be when I grew up!

What is the worst job you have ever had?

Being Santa’s little helper in a shopping mall, every penny helped!

What was your journey like to get to the position you are in now?

Amazing I have loved every single second of it! It’s been hard work at times in regards to working long hours when I opened my salon at the age of 17. All my friends would be going out over the weekend but I would work and work and work. I didn’t mind at the time as I knew what I put into it I would get out so thankfully all those long hours paid off!

 Describe your typical work day?

Wake up around 6am, have cuddles with my puppy, go to the gym and do a morning workout. Great way to start the day exercising. I then check emails and reply to clients, check my social media enquiries then head to the salon to start my day at creating lots of amazing brows, eyes and lips!

 What is the best and hardest thing about your job now?

I love that I am able to be creative every single day and even though some people may think it’s doing the same thing every day, it really isn’t because of everyone’s brows, face, design and symmetry are different. I love to create amazing eyebrows for people who may not have them, or to perfect people’s amazing brows.

 What advice would you give to any woman who wanted to work in your industry?

To work hard but also to really have a passion and love for what you do! Put lots of time into perfecting your skills and invest in good training.

 Is there another dream role you would still like?

I would love to be a makeup artist to the stars.

 What would be your back up career and why?

Definitely, something in the fashion/make up industry. I’ve got such an interest in these, I don’t think I would able to be in a corporate background, I would be so bored!! I’m really grateful I’m in a job that I don’t class as ‘work’.
