Sandhya's passion for Hair and Makeup started at a very young age, from stealing her mother's makeup to staining her cheeks with beetroot, she tried and tested it all.

After working in the financial world for a while she gave it up to give makeup a shot.

With this course, Sandhya hopes to create a welcoming space that will allow others to learn
