STAR

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Star programme! The techniques and tutorials were really beneficial and overall I enjoyed myself. Was sad that it was only three days as I was happy coming and learning different make up and beauty tips and tricks! Was so happy that the class that I was with bonded so closely so quickly. 

I am looking at options to come and study at Cut Above next year, which I am already looking forward to!"

Maddee (April 2016)
