Chelsy Holland

Co-founder, Director of True Beauty Academy

Chelsy started her career by completing an apprenticeship in Hairdressing, realising it wasn’t for her, she decided to go into Beauty. Chelsy represented Wakefield College at the Worldskills UK and won the regionals for Yorkshire. Once she qualified Chelsy went straight to work for Steiner onboard the cruise ships for four sea contracts. When she arrived home she worked for a Clarins & Decleor Gold Award salon whilst completing her Certificate in Education at Huddersfield University. Chelsy has worked for our sister college Intuitions, Wakefield College and Wakefield MET teaching Level 2 & Level 3 Beauty students before founding True Beauty Academy, with True Beauty Salon founder Elizabeth Speight. She was the FIVE time winner at the World Lash University conference in 2019 winning Best Lash Educator and Best Lash Academy and has since been a judge at the awards. Chelsy is a published author in Beauty publications, an IQA, EQA and End Point Assessor.  She hopes to inspire the next generation of Beauty Therapists and Hairdressers, as well as helping those in need of a career change.
