Kelly Patton


Hairdressing Lecturer

Kelly Patton began her career in a small salon in her home village of Comrie, and embarked on a Skillseekers apprenticeship through Perth College UHI for two years.

After working in the industry for thirteen years, she decided it was time for a career change so returned to the college to complete her advanced qualification and widen her options. Kelly is now a part-time lecturer at Perth College UHI and manages her own salon, with the intention of completing her HNC shortly.
