31st March 2021 - Welcome back to the Academy!

Its been great to have all our lovely apprentices back at the Academy since Mon. 8th March! 

We are very happy that you all feel so safe, the team have been amazing with the Covid-19 Secure procedures, and we thank you all for getting tested each week, before you attend the Academy, to protect yourselves, the team, and all of our families from the risk of spread. Lets all be careful, and take small steps to safely return to being able to get back to our salons.

Meanwhile, we closed to Apprentices & students next week, so we hope you all have a very peaceful, safe and sunny Easter, and successful return to your salons the following week - we look forward to seeing you soon!
