My Recommended Courses
I love teaching all aspects of Beauty, it is really hard to pick a favourite treatment, there are always new and exciting treatments coming out, if I had to choose what I enjoy the most at the moment I would say; Henna Brows and Brow Lamination are probably two of my favourite courses as they are so on trend.
