Everyone at Bela I have spoken to has made it easy for me to complete what I have needed and support me in growing my business.

I plan to continue to grow my little business and eventually add more services on when I have more time and the kiddies are older.

I did my Beauty Therapy certificate over 10 years ago but never used it. Years later I did my eyelash extension course with Jessica from Bela and it inspired me to follow my dreams and start my own business as a lash and brow artist. 

I have completed all of their eyelash courses and brow certificates and now own a busy home salon and sell my own brand of beauty products.

Lash extensions are quite difficult to pick up and learn but the Bela team made it super easy by providing lots of feedback and support. Through the courses I have been able to open my own salon.

I highly recommend the online Bela courses – it is super enjoyable and there is great reward!
