-- James Willis, a stylist at Kamigata has been promoted to Advanced Stylist. James, a former British Army soldier, joined Kamigata in 2008 from the army as an Assistant - what a career change that was!
James had served in the army in the Household Calvary for some seven years including two tours of Iraq. But James decided that being a hair stylist was what he really wanted to do. Back home in Cardiff, he couldn't find a salon to take him on but Kamigata decided to give him a chance.
James got stuck into his training and subsequently qualified as a hair stylist in 2010 just before Kamigata moved from their Llandaff salon to the current city centre location in the St David's Dewi Sant shoping centre, opposite John Lewis.
James has been coached by our Deputy Salon Director, Greg James, who is in charge of all training at Kamigata. Greg has decided that James has reached the standards of hair styling that he expects for an Advanced Stylist and James was promoted today. Congratulations to James...
