The Masterclass Details:

Have you had the same hairstyle for years, wear it the same day and night, struggle with straighteners , styling tongs and blow-drying, and don’t know which products you should use? Do you leave the salon after a hair appointment looking fab, only to never achieve the same look yourself?

Does your make up need updating, do you want to know how to change your look from day to night, natural to glam, and do you use just one make up brush for everything as you don’t know what they are all for? Then this Masterclass is just what you need.
