I have been going to the school as a model for hair, make up and other beauty treatments for about over a year now and the whole place is run so professionally. It is an absolute pleasure to help the students to gain confidence in themselves and in the new knowledge and skills they are gaining from the amazing tutors there. If you are thinking of being a model for the school or a new student I cannot recommend the place enough or big up the great things that go on there. The school is so inclusive of anyone no matter age, sex or background, its so welcoming to everyone. Thank you for all the wonderful experiences I have shared with your students and I look forward to many more. Penny

I have Completed my level 2 makeup artistry, and I’m now close to finishing my level 3 photographic makeup course at the Norwich school of beauty. The tutors are absolutely lovely and always give the best feedback. The school trains you to such a high standard and gets you ready for the next step in your career, I definitely recommend this school!!!

Great place! I went in with not very much confidence at all and I’m now I’m coming out with so much more! The groups are small what is lovely for me as I don’t like very busy places, everyone I have met at the school is lovely and very welcoming. I’m nearly at the end of my level 2 makeup course which is a fantastic little class, I’ve learnt all the ins and outs about makeup and the skin, I’ve also learnt some great techniques for applying makeup! I hope to return to the school for some more courses in the future. Would recommend to anyone????.

I am in the middle of doing my level 2 makeup course and I'm enjoying every second of it. The tutors are amazing as are the techniques they teach. Iv learnt so much already and I'm only half way through! The classes are small which allows the tutors to be there to help you with anything you need, they are all so kind and friendly and making you feel like you are part of a team. This for me is so much more than a makeup course, I took this course after deciding to change my career at 37years old. I went in feeling slightly nervous and lacked a lot of confidence, now halfway through those nerves have vanished and my confidence is at its best. Anyone looking to further their skills or even start a new career, this is, personally speaking the nicest and creative place to be.

The Norwich School of Beauty is an asset to the city and the beauty industry. I have studied at the school and been in makeup and beauty for some time. The courses offer so much information, tutor support, practical skills and fun. If you are at all interested or thought about doing any course for some time go to an open day or give them a call. The team built up my confidence and skills in the makeup industry. I could not recommend highly enough. Thank you ladies x
