Products Used

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products. We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, so that will build your client list and your business.

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases you insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost so that you can buy what is right for you and the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.

Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and other may be available for purchase on the training day.

Nancy Davies
Gel Extensions and Gel Polish - Practitioner Accredited Diploma Course

Tina was so welcoming, made me and the other lady on the course feel so at home and relaxed! Tina was brilliant at answering any questions I had and explaining every step to me as we went along. I would definitely attend another course and can't wait to when I can, the course was so informative, and made me leave with feeling I can go away and start from home confidently! I looked at the reviews and was impressed, they are affordable but you get every bit of value from the course for what you pay for!

Sital was lovely. She encouraged and supported everyone throughout the course. She constantly asked if we had questions and could she help us. I will mostly definitely be booking onto the manicure and pedicure course with her. Excellent feedback and very reasonable course prices.
