I’m feeling very proud and blessed to revisit Vincenza at The Wig Room Training Academy today. I completed a 3 month course in May this year and have since hit the ground running! I felt I was taught the techniques I needed to understand and flourish in the industry.

I wanted to thank you personally! I did my first Snow White wig today and the team is so happy with me and how I catch on straight away with the techniques for all the different wigs! I told them I got some crafty hints from a teacher in London (you!) – I owe most of my confidence to you!!
