My name is Margaret Payne. I was a mature student. My background was in hairdressing & cosmetic sales for several cosmetic houses both in Ireland and Los Angeles.
I studied the Diploma in Beauty Therapy in Crumlin College. The teachers were excellent. They went above and beyond to help with my classwork, both theory and practical elements. Their knowledge and teaching techniques were fantastic. The College provides excellent resources to all students and there is support available whenever it is needed.
The two years at Crumlin College were the best days ever! I truly enjoyed every part of it. Being a mature student I was apprehensive at first but I was made feel very welcome. I would very much recommend Crumlin College no matter what age. It has so much to offer. I am now starting my own business, running a beauty room in a hair salon.
