This is such a friendly school where someone is always on hand to give advice.

The small classes work really well and the quality of teaching is amazing. It’s such a friendly school too. You gain more than a qualification here, you get a career.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for a fab course. I love the lashes and cannot say enough how good our tutor was by giving us extra hints and tips!

I love how relaxed, welcoming and supportive everyone is. The calm environment made it easy to learn. I would recommend the Norwich School of Beauty to anyone.

I absolutely recommend The Norwich School of Beauty, students are well supported, inspired, encouraged and given challenging learning experiences. It’s really empowering for your confidence.
