My name is Alex and I just successfully completed my beauty level 2 and level 3 and advanced laser level 4. I can't recommend enough this beauty therapy school :)... All my tutors were very patient, knowledgeable, professional, and passion to deliver as much as they can in order to prepare myself and other classmates to deliver the best beauty treatments.
Also, the school take care of you even after you finish your beauty courses and help you to set up your own business.
I now set up my own beauty salon at Pimlico Clinic specializing facials, body massage, nails, waxing and microdermabrasion at more. Just over 3 months, my treatments are fully booked in advance. All my customers are very impressed with my beauty skills and techniques. I am very proud of being a beauty student at Ray Cochrane Beauty School.

5 star++++. School was great but what made it even greater was our teacher, Mrs Belgin, she made it a beautiful, amazing experience, a pleasure to be there for 6 months, she is an exceptional teacher with a beautiful personality, engaging lessons and unwavering dedication to each student and his learning journey. She created a supportive and inclusive classroom environment where l felt valued and motivated to excel, her enthusiasm was contagious and her innovative teaching methods inspired a deeper love in me for the beauty industry. I am grateful and happy to have had her as my teacher and know that her impact will stay with me for years to come.
Best decision to study at LSBM. Loved it!

This is the best beauty school ever!
Teachers and all who works in there are very humble, knowledgeable and supportive. They work very hard to make sure that every student gets sufficient support for their studying.
In the school the teachers were helping every single one of the students to make sure that they understood everything was taught in the class, both in theory and practical
