NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing Course

“I started my course 3 weeks ago. I don’t think I have felt so happy in years… I can’t believe how much we have learnt in only 3 weeks. Our two lecturers are BRILLIANT. They are patient, incredibly helpful and exceptionally professional, but also have the most amazing sense of humour. Every day has been exciting and I wholeheartedly recommend this Academy and the course to both young and old. I am loving the whole experience.” – Nikki Ziehl
