Experienced designers to new entrants join our courses. Here's a look at what you could be doing on a NASMAH short course, plus feedback from just some of our happy students

"The period hair course was fantastic; in fact, I wish I was 18 again and could return to being a full time 'Stephanie student'! Practically, Stephanie's love of the craft is extraordinary and her skill and dedication second to none. Not only is watching her demonstration mesmerising, but her keen eye misses nothing and she lets nothing slide! This pushed us all to improve, and her precise teaching couldn't fail to inspire anyone to strive for a better result. Thank you both for a great week."

Jacquetta Levon

Make-up designer who attended period hairdressing course in February 2011

"l have been a Hair and Make-up Artist for 20 years and l felt it was time to do a refresher course, as there were techniques that l had not used in a while. After doing quite a few months research on the internet, l came across NASMAH's website re: the period hairstyling and barbering courses.

"Travelling from Australia to the UK to attend NASMAH's courses was well worth it; I would recommend their courses to anyone. Not only were the courses rewarding, the girls were so hospitable, having travelled so far, and made me feel at home. l now have new friends in the UK.

"Thank you to Stephanie and Sandra. l am looking forward to coming back to the UK in the future and hopefully doing some work there."

Came all the way from Australia to do NASMAH's period hair and barbering courses.

"Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to you and Stephanie. I have had a great week, and really enjoyed the course. I have learned so much in the 5 days and now have so much more confidence as well as the practical knowledge to take this much further, and hopefully my new skills will open many more doors for me in the future."

Attended our period hairdressing course in February 2011

"I attended the NASMAH period hair course with Sandra and Stephanie.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the four days of period hairstyling. The course was not only highly informative and creative, it was also fascinating to hear of all the experiences Stephanie and Sandra had to share.

"I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to expand or refresh their period hairstyling skills."
