Why Choose Fakealicious® Training Academy Ltd?

A bit about me

I am a very friendly and fully qualified Beauty Therapist, Hairdresser, Assessor, Teacher and IQA. I have worked in the industry for 18 years continually learning new techniques and products, I have now even developed my own nail products from nail tips to gel polishes!!

As I work from an outbuilding I can keep my prices lower than most training academies and salons whilst still using the best products on the market. I like to make my students feel at ease as well as my clients and like to build up a good relationship with them.

I offer a range of courses from workshops to diploma day courses, distance learning courses and NVQ’s in all hair and beauty!  I like to help my students every step of the way and don’t see them as just a number or with £££ I genuinely want all my students to do well!!  I also run classes of an evening as I know its hard for us mummies to get out in the day and try to do something for ourselves!!

Some of my courses can seem quite cheap and ‘too good to be true’ but the simple fact is I have no overheads as it’s just me and I know what the products cost and don’t like to rip people off and charge a huge amount of money!! It’s as simple as that|

Feel free to contact me for any advice on my mobile or by email (but please remember to leave your contact details so I can get back to you)

A little about our courses

We offer over 30 different accredited and approved hair & beauty courses, most of them are for complete beginners without any previous experience and you will receive a recognised diploma certificate.

The reason you need an accredited course is so that you can gain insurance once you have completed your course and to start building your empire!! You can have complete confidence that we are a fully accredited company with Associated Beauty Therapists (ABT) who are one of the largest hair and beauty insurers in the UK.

I am confident that the time schedule is adequate for the Diploma courses, due to the small numbers I teach. If I feel you need extra help you may be required to complete case studies or be called back to complete the course again on another date. You will find all the information you require on each individual course page, including venues, dates and prices.

We run our courses as and when people book them, we do not pick out a date and have courses set in stone, once one person has booked a course and paid their deposit, that course will then be advertised for others to book onto.   We do not cancel any courses if there are not enough people on it, sometimes if there is just one person on the course it may run slightly shorter than scheduled.  If you do not see a convenient date for a certain course you can book for a day that you find convenient.

Once courses are booked and deposit has been paid, you will receive a confirmation email (within 7 days) which will have your training manual attached for you to read before your course, on the day we just do practical.  All manuals will cover anatomy and physiology, consultation and client care, contra-indications, the treatment itself & aftercare.
