    Do I need a model?

    Pre-covid, this was the case and sometimes we used to supply the models too - we prefer for students to learn on real hands.
    However, due to new restrictions from the pandemic, classes are strictly student only and because of this, students work on each other taking turns to practice. We actually find this to have some extra benefits.

    Where are you located?

    Our training academy is in Cannock, Staffordshire.


    After searching everywhere for nails courses I found LUX and I’m so glad I did!!! I did my gel polish application and full cover soft gel extensions. I loved every minute of the courses and met some lovely ladies. I felt so welcomed by all the ladies that work at LUX and Charlotte gave me all the tools and knowledge to leave LUX feeling confident to carry out treatments for clients I can’t wait to go back and do my acrylic nails course

    Tamarra Petrice

    What a lovely group of girls. All welcoming and made me feel at ease. They gave us an indepth introduction to the course which we was studying: individual eyelash extension course. Then moved onto our own training heads and kit provided to use. With help from 2 trained girls for support throughout and monitoring. Then we had practised on each other. After we was reassured and given certificates and contact details to a private group for access for support if needed in the future. Shall definitely come back for more training. Thank you so much for today.

    Katie Elizabeth Springthorpe

    Absolutely lovely girls in the salon. Did a individual lash course today and they made me feel so comfortable. Only small groups so get enough 1-1 time to concentrate on areas you don’t feel 100% on. Will definitely be returning to do another course. Give you all the tips and tricks to expand your clientele. Highly recommend this academy 100% the best I’ve seen.

    I cannot recommend Lux training academy anymore for training, both charl and chantelle are absolutely amazing and help anytime you need that little push. I was so nervous to start with but as soon as I walked into the course all my worry went away and I started to feel really happy and a little more confident. Best course ever and the most polite and kind ladies who work there too❤

    Kelly Perkins

    I couldn't recommend a better beauty academy! I came across Lux on social media after hunting for lash extension courses, I enquired and spoke to the lovely Charlotte. I just had a baby and was dreading leaving her for a even a few hours, but once I was at Lux the hours just flew because I was enjoying myself so much! All of the staff are so kind and friendly and the training is spot on. The course took 6 hours and I walked away feeling confident and qualified! I'll be returning for the nail courses and I cant wait!
