Review of Course

Donna Hosford

Henna Brows, Lash Tinting, Brow Mapping, Waxing Course

The main reason for you choosing to do this course was to learn a new skill that I couldn't learn on my own. The Course content and the way training is done and the price was a big influence for me. What I loved most about the  course at american beauty was the Experience, fab trainer, the way I was thought, flexibility.

I wanted to do these courses as I have a keen interest in beauty and getting this work done myself which is why I opted to do the course. From the beginning I knew I firstly picked the right college from the way they spoke and arranged everything with me working around my work schedule. Once the course began my trainer made me feel so comfortable and they way Alexis explained and showed me in detail how to do the treatment was second to none. She has so much knowledge and her personality is so lovable and friendly. Once completed I had full confidence and total understanding of how to carry out the treatments and work on my own.

Review of Course



"I completed the full time beauty therapy course in American Beauty. I would recommend this course to anybody who has an interest in the beauty industry. The course is very hands on which in my opinion is excellent as you are learning while physically carrying out the procedure. Alexis is always there when you have a question and is happy to help. She is very approachable and encouraging. If you are not fully confident in any aspect of the course, Alexis provides you with extra training, help and advice for as long as it takes you to be confident and happy with that part of the course. Alexis has recently helped me gain employment in a salon which I am thrilled about. I can't wait to start my career and I know I can always text Alexis in the future if I ever need anything."
