Foundation Hair Styling – The Fundamentals! Ongoing

Course Overview

Success doesn’t happen overnight, and what you make of it is in your hands. I constantly hear the phrases “I’m too old”, “What if I can’t do it”, “I’ve left it too late’.

Are you alive??? Well then, you CAN do it, and if you love what you do, you WILL succeed. It’s never too late to learn, to change your direction and just do what you want to do.

With changes in the national minimum wage, it has been made it more difficult to start a career in hairdressing when you’re older. As a woman who chooses to take time out to raise a family, this can mean a career in hairdressing is out of the question.

This is where I come in! Did you know the Bridal industry is worth billions of pounds, and there is a shortage of professionally trained Bridal hairstylists!


My courses are designed to guide you through all the steps to become your own boss, grow your business, work your own hours to fit around your home life and earn an excellent salary.

I will act as your mentor for as long as you need me, and give you guidance and advice every step of the way until you feel ready to go it on your own.

**We have decided to restructure the course to make it even easier for you, so you can now access the modules as soon as you purchase the course and study the modules in your own time to work around your busy schedule. Students will no longer be required to submit homework, however we do encourage you to be active on the private members only Facebook group and share your work if you get stuck or to celebrate your progress.
