Meet Claire

“I’m Claire… I’m currently working full time in children and family social care as a team manager. I’ve been in role for almost 20 years and whilst I’m still passionate about this type of work, I’ve always wanted to explore my other passion which is “all things beauty” but never made the time to do it. However, this year I took a leap of courage and in June I started on my beauty journey. 

I came across Bella Marie Training Academy online and quickly signed up for numerous courses including; Manicure and Gel polish, Perfect Brows, Facial, Spray Tanning, Semi-permanent Lashes, Lash Lift and Microdermabrasion. I’m also hoping to complete the Russian Lash course soon too. 

The training staff at the Academy are amazing and make learning so interesting and achievable, and the communications team are also fantastic and liaise with you super quick!  I’m in the process of setting up my own business from home and have recently converted my daughter’s old “garden teen shed” into “Beauty at the Shed with Clara”  
I’m super excited about the future and recommend Bella Marie Training Academy to anyone wanting to develop or to expand their knowledge and skills in beauty therapies”.
