Alison Guildford Owner Of Classy And FabulousI’m a big believer in education, knowledge is power. Education empowers us to realise our dreams, to become the person we wish to be and to excel at what we do. I’m of the mindset that we should never become masters, we should all remain students as learning never ends.

I graduated from University while supporting and lecturing within the hair and beauty department for 7 years in South Cheshire College. 2012 was the year of change and after being chosen by CND to become an Education Ambassador, I have spent the past two and a half years travelling, teaching and gaining accolades to enhance my teaching styles whilst also still performing a wide range of nail, hair and beauty treatments.

I’ve been fortunate to have my work featured in Scratch Magazine, one of the largest nail industry publications in the world. After gaining my Grand Master qualifications I have recently been selected to represent The Creative Beauty Group as an Education Emissary.

I offer education either at my own salon in Cheshire or if you prefer, on site at your own venue (to be arranged). I also provides guest education for The Creative Beauty Group North West in addition to demonstrating at trade shows around Europe on behalf of The Creative Beauty Group.

Below are a list of my qualifications to date.
