Darryn Pitman

Darryn’s great passion is training the next generation of hairdressers and barbers, including those at the salon he manages, Captiva Spa in Caerphilly. He feels privileged to be working in an exciting industry that has opened so many doors for him.

An outstanding example of how vocational learning can help to make dreams come true, Darryn opted for a career where he could be a showman and have fun. He achieved a Foundation Apprenticeship in Hairdressing in 2008 while working for Spirit Hair Team in Ystrad Mynach followed by Apprenticeships in Hairdressing and Barbering.

“An Apprenticeship is a great way to learn a trade and having hands-on training was essential for my progress,” he said. “From day one, I knew I wanted to be a world famous hairdresser and nothing was going to stand in my way. I am really passionate about hairdressing and it’s great that I can showcase my work on the highest stage worldwide.”
