I have just completed my level 4 Laser and skin rejuvenation course at the London school of beauty and make up. Elli my tutor was very informative and had amazing industry knowledge that really helped me understand the course content. Good location as Barbican station is just around the corner. I have recommended to another friend to start the course.

I completed the Level 4 Laser & IPL Treatments Diploma with Jessie and she was the most exceptional teacher! She is a fountain of knowledge and has helped increase my confidence as a therapist as well. The London School of Beauty and Makeup is excellent and very well run - I would recommend to anyone!!
