About Us

The Essex School of Beauty has been run under the expert guidance of Shelley Blackburn for over 10 years, a highly experienced tutor, and therapist for over 20 years.

Shelley is very passionate about making sure all the students under her guidance leave the School full of enthusiasm and knowledge and with the confidence to jump straight into a new career. We have a very high pass rate at the School, but if Shelley feels you would benefit from additional training (offered free of charge!) you will be invited back to carry out some more study.


Whether you choose our Full Beauty Therapy, Nail Technology or Holistic Packages or an individual subject, our courses are designed to give as much worthwhile and practical experience as possible. It may also be necessary to dedicate some out of school hours to home study to ensure your knowledge of the subject is thorough.


Your beauty training products and any specialised equipment will be provided by the school ready for you to use in practical sessions. For most courses we provide the models for you to carry out all your practical treatments as our unique hands-on training enables all students to benefit immediately from carrying out treatments on real clients.

We are one of the only schools who specialise in offering our students one to one training and our high standards of teaching, ensures the knowledge and training you receive will be extremely comprehensible and invaluable to your future career.
