Carol Hendrie was very professional and yet friendly I loved learning anatomy and still remember all of it taught by only Carol. Learned and remembered muscles and they’re function, used anatomy as order of treatment eg.facials. Didn’t have a clue about treatment order until Carol Hendrie was my lecturer.

I decided to extend my interest of nails and makeup by attending classes taught by Carol. The classes were a good size, very informative and found Carol a fountain of knowledge and so easy to talk to and she made everything so easy to learn. Being a hairdresser I wanted to incorporate other services to customers/potential customers and have enjoyed doing wedding makeup as well as hair. There is such a wide market for offering nail services and I do think that the courses get you on the right track within the industry, Carol is on hand to ask any questions you may have and always pushes you to be the best you can possibly be. I would highly recommend!

I chose to train with Carol because of her great feedback, I was in college the previous year learning the basics but didn't want to spend another 3-6 months of evening classes. Carol taught me gel polish and acrylic extensions she was so nice and helpful and very patient! Acrylic is so hard! I now work from home part-time as I have another job and a seven-year-old. I have roughly 10 people a month which is ideal for me at the moment. I love doing nails and I know that if I needed help Carol would be there to support me.

I have now been a beauty therapist for over 11 years, I originally came in to contact with Carol when she taught me at college at the beginning of my career. Since starting her business Professional Salon Training I have completed quite a few courses with her and her professionalism and enthusiasm for beauty inspire me to improve myself. As well as guiding me through my award in education and training qualification I have also completed practical courses with her. I have learned so much from Carol, not only as a beauty therapist but also as a business woman working hard to juggle work and family life.

I thoroughly enjoyed my nail learning journey with Carol!!

I successfully completed and passed 2 nail courses with Carol; Gel Polish and Nail Tips with Acrylic Overlay. These were carried out on 2 separate occasions. I completed all theory work at home at my own leisure but before the practical date(s). However, this was to ensure that if I had any questions I could ask Carol to explain it to me but it was all straightforward enough as I had already done the beginner Nail Finishes course at college. I travelled through, with a friend, from West Lothian to Falkirk. There wasn’t any courses near me. It was definitely worth the journey! I now have a skill that I have turned into a part time job that I can work around my 3 children.

Carol is such a warm and welcoming lady, she immediately made me feel at ease. I cannot thank Carol enough and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to pursue a career in the beauty industry!

Overall the day was great! Learning how to properly cleanse and moisturise the face before applying the make up, how to create a more day to day look and for a more mature face. You were very patient with my questions and going through everything step by step, as well as all the extras I should be doing due to covid. Couldn’t have been more friendly and made me feel very comfortable! Couldn’t have gone any better.

I’ve just finished doing a Acrylic Course with Carol and I loved it. Carol was very easy to approach and answered any questions that we had. She explained everything very clearly and took us step by step through the process. Carol was able to offer advice if and when a problem arose, I was able to fix it. I highly recommend doing this course if your thinking about it. I will definitely be back for more. Thanks Carol x

I was a nurse for 10 years before embarking on my new profession to include laser hair removal & tattoo removal. Wanting to add on more for my customers I booked a facial training course with Carol and honestly found the small class as more a one to one training experience. Carol was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions and the extras I am now able to offer my customers has been immeasurable. I have since practiced the techniques shown already and my customers love the treatments. I would not hesitate in booking any further courses with Carol.

I trained with Carole for my gel polish / acrylics and Kirsty for my gel enhancements. It was such a great experience, the team are friendly, very professional, confident and always have the answers to any questions you may have.
The salon itself is lovely, extremely clean and great care is taken to ensure everyone’s safety with regards to COVID-19.
Would highly recommend booking a course with Professional Salon Training as there is lots to choose from their website. I shall be booking more in the future.

I chose to train with carol because her course was local and a good price, I really enjoyed the course, everyone was so friendly, carol put me at ease, I learned make-up application, and lots of tips etc, I have added this into my job, I'm a hairdresser and since qualifying in make-up I've been doing hair and make up for nights out and school proms, its great!

I put my daughter and her friend on Carol's make-up course because I have heard great thing about her training, the girls love the learning experience and made friends with the other trainees, they learned lots of make-up tips and tricks, Addison has used her new talents to do my make-up, I would love Addison to keep up her training with Carol in future for lot more make-up courses and when she’s older do more beautician courses, overall both girls had a blast and I would definitely recommend it for other young girls who are starting to play around with make-up.
