“I am retraining to be a hairdresser whilst still working in my office job, and found LHI to be the only company that could fit around my available days as time is limited.  Being able to  come back if I didn’t pass was very reassuring for me as it is a big step for me, and now I’m colouring my friends and family’s hair with confidence and have two interviews to work in salons.  Can’t believe it’s actually happing and so quickly!

"I did the 5 day cutting course and I was so surprised at just how much i learned during that week. I learned all of the diffrerent cuts and we had plenty of clients on which to practise. I think that the biggest strenth of this course is that you learn to cut on real people not just doll heads. I now have a triving mobile business and I want to do the colour course so I can add to my skills. I was a complete beginner and after the course I felt confident enough to start my business.
