Cher began her apprenticeship in Geelong in 1995, after completing an intensive 6 month delivery of Certificate III in Hairdressing at The Centre of Excellence. Once the practical components of her training were completed, Cher traveled to Sydney where, for 3 years, she continued expanding on her trade skills. In 2002 she returned to Victoria and commenced employment in Bendigo in salons located in Kangaroo Flat and central Bendigo.

In 2003 Cher began working at The Australian College of Hair Design & Beauty in Bendigo where she also undertook a Certificate IV in Workplace Training & Assessment. After three years of providing hairdressing & some beauty training to young people of regional Victoria, she left in 2006 to start a family.

Cher recommenced her hairdressing career in 2009 at Salon Inspired Hair & Beauty and in December 2010 purchased the business.
