What our graduates say

"I have really enjoyed studying my Level 3 Beauty Therapy course at IBHA. Our teachers Sam, Jodi and Debbie have been excellent and all have years of industry experience. The course is very detailed and I feel confident about going out and using my skills; it has also been great having the girls downstairs in the salon to mentor us too! IBHA also has the best CPD options and additional courses with industry leaders like Nouveau Lashes and Decleor. I'm so glad I chose to study here and will miss it lots when I graduate. Thank you so much." August 2017
