After having no professional hairdressing experience myself, I found the Bridal Hair Course for Beginners fantastic. We learnt in small groups and had step by step tutoring. Jo was very supportive and hands-on, and explained how we could experiment with different styles and techniques encouraging us to progress further and be imaginative and creative. I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to add to existing hair & beauty skills, or for a complete beginner like myself. I am now looking to use the skills I have learnt with Jo to build up my portfolio.
