I would highly recommend Foxhall Beauty College.

Excellent location, tutors, products and facilities. The teaching technique is fantastic and I really enjoyed the course, there is a lot of work in it but it was always fun and interesting.  The support at the college was tremendous.  All the tutors and Imelda Cusack herself were second to none with helpful suggestions and study advice. When it came to the actual practical side of the course this group of professionals taught with flair, enthusiasm and humour. It was obvious that Imelda and her team had perfected their skills over many years.

What the tutors and Imelda did with such ease made me as a student feel confident in my ability.

The entire staff had great patience and really facilitated me to achieve my goal.

Always delighted to hear from a past pupil 🙂 Wioleta was kind enough to send us in a brief summary of her time at Foxhall. Its greatly appreciated 🙂


Hi Imelda

I would highly recommend Foxhall Beauty College. As I was a student there and enjoyed every minute of my College experience! I learned how to work as a therapist and what I would experience in a working salon. I enjoyed both practical and theory sides of Beauty College. During my Course term I received “Student of the Year Award” and I could not have been more honored and delighted. i am so thankful to my Tutors for their patience and outstanding knowledge.

I have learned and achieved good Beauty therapy skills and knowledge. At the end of my College year after successfully completing my course I got offered an amazing opportunity to work for Imelda, my Principal. I had the best experience. I teached full time students in Beauty and Body therapy, under the supervision of Imelda. She was always professional and understanding, patient and incredibly helpful.

As a result of Her wonderful traits, students would come back just to see her and ask for advice!!!

Foxhall provided me with an ideal start in my chosen career of Beauty Therapy. I graduated with ITEC, CIBTAC and C.I.D.E.S.C.O qualifications of the highest grade and was also honoured to be chosen as Student of the Year 2006. This was all thanks to the teachings and constant guidance of Imelda and both my tutors, Sam McLoughney and Laura O’Brien. Thank you all very much! It was with your knowledge and help that made me the professional I am today.
In the last 8 years I have achieved so much. I had a brief start working in a Limerick City salon to gain experience before being asked to return to Foxhall to teach the full time beauty therapy course. I tutored here for the next 2 years under Imelda’s guidance and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a fantastic experience that not many can achieve.
I then decided to start up my own mobile beauty business, Beauty Brought 2 You, in Limerick. I have been running this successfully for the last 6 years and have built up an amazing and loyal clientele.
I would like to personally thank everyone at Foxhall Beauty College for a great start to a fantastic career!!

Alumni Review – Why I chose Foxhall

By | Alumni | No Comments

After a lot of research on beauty therapy courses I visited Foxhall Beauty College.

Upon meeting Imelda, who was so informative and helpful, I decided that this was undoubtedly the place for me. I chose to do the full time beauty therapy course. As a student I enjoyed every minute of college so much that I never missed a day! The course involved lots of hard work and weekends of practicing my new beauty skills. I could not have succeeded without the fantastic support from my tutors Samantha and Brid who were so supportive, helpful and had such patience throughout the entire year. I have no doubt that it was thanks to them that I graduated with ITEC, CIBTAC and CIDESCO qualifications.

I was also honoured to be awarded “Student of the Year 2016” which I am so proud to have achieved. Never did I think that a week after college ended that I would have secured a full time job as a beauty therapist in Dublin. It is like a dream come true. Foxhall is a fantastic college and is so professional.

The support and guidance from Imelda and the tutors really got me to where I am today. It helped prepare me for work outside of college as a therapist and made me feel confident in my ability. I want to thank Foxhall for helping me achieve my goal and the fantastic support I received during the college year and for helping me to achieve such a great start to my career as a beauty therapist.
