Testimonials



Just a few of the many comments our students have made while studying at The Marvell & Hair Group.

Donna Kay I decided to use marvell and hair group as my training as I liked the idea of being hands on in a salon and it only taking a year to become qualified.

Amy Denton I started off completing my level 1 & 2 at swindon college and even though I enjoyed the course and loved everything I was learning I struggled with the large classes and the waiting around. Yvonne was my tutor in level 2 so when I found out that she would be teaching in a salon I jumped at the chance to join her for my level 3. Im so pleased with the descision, working with yvonne in a 5 star salon is amazing, my confidence has improved and being able to work with the amazingly friendly staff and pick up on their skills has helped me improve my own.

Vicky Duggan I too intend to be that determined to achieve new heights in becoming a professional hairdresser with a fantastic team at The Hair Group and a Marvell-ous Tutor Yvonne,

Cathy May Marvell & Hair Group Academy ticked all the right boxes for me, small groups, mixed age range and fast track training.

Vikki Baker Hi my name is Vikki Baker, I am 35 years old and have always wanted to learn how to cut and colour hair. I did not fancy going back to college with people a great deal younger than me, so began my quest to find somewhere else to learn. When I stumbled across Marvell & Hair Group Academy online I thought this sounds great and I can now say 2 months later I am now happy to be on a course with other like -minded students with similar goals.

Charlotte RK I followed Yvonne over from the last salon we was at, she understood me and helped me through anything I was stuck on and because of her I am where I am today.

Susan Boyd At a trip to the salon I got talking to Elaine & said I had a NVQ 2 in hairdressing but had lost my confidence, she informed me that there was an academy opening within the salon. As I had no salon experience I thought it would be a good idea to gain my confidence as well as learn new skills, technics as well as having an NVQ level 3 qualification
