Within this course, students will learn about hair styling and waxing, and the skills needed by nail technicians and make-up artists.
The hair styling course is a comprehensive guide to becoming a stylist. It begins with the history of hairdressing from the earliest historical times, then explains the qualifications needed to train as a hairdresser in the UK.

This is followed by a breakdown of the tools and products used for styling, and how to use them. A guide to recognising different facial shapes and hairstyles appropriate for each shape is followed by instructions for washing and conditioning hair.

What our students have to say…
Well structured, clear, and easy to follow
I was bought this Nail course as a birthday present and it has really inspired me as I have always had a passion for Nail design.
This course was well structured, clear, and easy to follow. It ran smoothly and I knew exactly how long I was expected to work on each module.
I learnt all about the business side to the salon as well as physical skills and it was easy to do the exams and get my certificate. I would thoroughly recommend this course or similar ones to other people as it was so flexible and I can now take my new skills straight into the working world.

This course was super fun and so easy to follow.
I loved the convenience of learning everywhere, I could use my phone or tablet and do the course in the car, breaks while at work or in the privacy of my living room. The videos were wonderful and the worksheets helped so much as well… I’m more confident in myself now 🙂

An amazing way to turn your hobby into a nice little money maker
I started doing nails as a hobby, and my interest just carried on growing, I never thought that I would end up qualified!

Great course which is simple to do
Great course which is simple to do but you get a great qualification in the end, and if you fail a unit it is simple to retake.
Full knowledge of area so it makes it easier to start a business and tells you the legal things you need to know as well.

Amazing course! Clear training videos and everything you need to know to become a nail tech! I’m so pleased I decided to do this. It’s put me on track to work for myself and own my own business.
Kelly Goulding – Corby
I was a little sceptical about doing an online course as I thought it wouldn’t be very in depth, but how wrong I was!
Very thorough and covered everything you could possibly need. I trained many years ago and wanted a refresh and this was perfect and enabled me to get my insurance and feel confident being back in the Beauty Industry.
I’m now about to start another refresh course on waxing and can’t wait to get going, I will most certainly be back to do more. If you’re unsure whether to do an online course, don’t be, its a must. Highly recommended!
Sue Pearce – Hoddesdon
I can’t stop studying!
I started this course only one day ago and I cant stop studying. The information is very informative. I like the way the course gives you time to practise to get the skill right before you move on to the next subject.
I am looking forward to completing the course so I can start doing the nails properly. Highly Recommended.
