"After completing 3 courses in London, which I feel were a total waste of time and money, I was very down about my future and what I had done as I felt the courses offered buckets of theory which were of no relevance to a modern day stylist and no practise so I had no idea where to go from there until a colleague mentioned The Image Academy.....The content covered exactly what I was looking for in assisting me to start up my own personal styling business. The days out in the shops mixed with the "start your own business section" allowed me to take the steps I required to build my business and I have never looked back. Shirley's enthusiasm for the industry mixed with her experience is invaluable to anyone starting out".
