Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy Combined Level 2 Diploma
I trained as a teaching assistant and worked in a school for a few years. When my own children were in school I decided to do hair and beauty because I enjoyed it and I wanted to do something different.
My son wanted to come to UCB to do sports so I came here with him on the open day. While I was here, I looked at hair and beauty, spoke to one of the lecturers and the course sounded really good and professional. I came to the open day on the Friday – and I started the following Monday.
This is the best course out there. There is a good variety of treatments and the lecturers are great, really friendly. The group get on well, too.
I decided to do hair and beauty combined because the beauty industry is so big now. Most hair salons have beauty attached and the combined course gives me more opportunities. Although I knew the basics of beauty, I didn’t know the procedures and the etiquette.
My daughter is coming to UCB next year to do hair and media make-up. So maybe in the future we can run a business together.
