I done a few courses with jade in this beauty training school. As soon as I entered the building, she made me feel at ease and comfortable. The courses were very enjoyable and jade was very helpful with any questions I had. Each course I done I felt confident when leaving. Even since completing the courses jade has only been a message away with any help or advice I have needed. I would highly recommend Cardiff nail and beauty training course. A massive thank you for all your help.

I've so far attended Cardiff Nail & Beauty for a number of beauty courses. Jade is very passionate about teaching her students with her vast knowledge and focused in helping you progress further with your qualifications. She is so welcoming, easy to talk to and willing to guide her students after they've finished their courses. She has given me so much confidence to progress with my career and I won’t hesitate to book all my future courses with her. Highly recommend.
