Wig Wash and Drop Founder Inspires Hair and Beauty Students

As part of Global Enterprise Week, the College of Haringey Enfield and North East London invited business owner Gabrielle Phillips to talk to Hair and Beauty students about starting their own business.

Wig Wash and Drop Founder Inspires Hair and Beauty Students

Gabrielle, the founder of a business called Wig Wash and Drop, hosted seminars on what it takes to create a business in the hairdressing sector, at both our Tottenham and Enfield centres. She gave a motivational speech about her journey and what it takes.

Gabrielle said “We offer a range of services at Wig Wash and Drop. We revive all wigs, both synthetic and human hair, hair bundles and hair extensions. The simple three-step process makes it easy for customers to drop off their wigs, have them refurbished or cleaned and pick them up.

“Coming in and talking to the students today was really fun. It’s nice to give back and share my knowledge with the students. It felt good to share my experiences and journey and hopefully I can help someone else start their own business.”

Inspired by Gabrielle’s talk, the classes had shared ideas and had discussions that sparked good plans for future businesses. This was the aim of the seminar as part of Global Enterprise Week, a week of global events aimed to inspire and create awareness of entrepreneurship.

Organiser of the seminar, Louise Webber, said, “Sessions like this are key for our students, to motivate them and give them honest and vital information needed to succeed in the real world. The students were really engaged and I know they took a lot away from Gabrielle.”
