Clients comments: “I’ve been to the most expensive Beauty School in Cape Town, but I have never received such quality hands-on training as given by Brenda-Lee. At a previous expensive college I came away unsure and “shaky” to give a treatment, but through Brenda-Lee’s training, I have confidence to give good advice and treatments”
