I get to meet so many incredible clients and do something I love as a job. What's better than that?
Since creating Faces by Poppy back in 2015, I am now the proud owner of POISE Academy - A Creative Hair Specialist & Make Up Artistry Salon based in Bangor, North Wales, where Faces by Poppy is based. Not only does POISE run as a luxury salon, it is also a facility to teach individuals who want to get into the creative industry with specific trend-driven courses!
I now get to work alongside phenomenal creative artists and get to create magic.

Hey! It's Poppy here, if you don't already know my story, then listen in....Faces by Poppy came alive back in February 2015. I literally turned my passion of testing out all new make up products and applying it on different faces into a job. It's probably one of the best decisions i've made, to date. It enables me to be creative,
