10 Day Refresher Course Refresher Course

This course is designed for those who already hold an existing Beauty Qualification, but have been out of the Salon for a while and wish to re-enter the Salon with confidence.
The program will be tailored to your individual requirements by our Director of Studies, and will be delivered by our highly qualified and experienced Trainers.

You decide what you want to learn and when, and we will make it happen.
Courses begin at the beginning of every month, or otherwise by negotiation. Programs can be delivered over 10 days consecutively, or break up the program days as you see fit.

At the end of your 10 day program if you are still not confident, we will offer you an additional 10 days tuition AT NO COST.
