LJMA is on the road....

and if a group of 3 or more book in the same area, Lauren at LJMA will choose a suitable venue to run the course from for your training.

Lauren of LJMA is also resident Make-up and Hair Artist at Frasers in Egerton, Kent and runs groups, one to one courses from there too. The courses are sold as a package only where an overnight or two stay is included with your course.  In certain circumstances, so courses may be available without overnight stay at Frasers, although there may be an additional fee for the hiring of room whilst in training at Frasers to the course cost that can be found on their website. - These courses are ideal for when you do not live local to the area and want to have a mini break too. You can purchase these with an overnight dinner and breakfast which adds to the value for money policy with great training.

Please contact Lauren direct for further information or visit link page to read further about the history of Frasers.


The Bridal hair course was one of the best courses I've attended. I didn't have much experience of hair up and the course was designed specifically to tailor to my needs. It was one to one which was perfect and it was geared towards the areas I specifically needed help with as well as helping me learn a whole variety of styles. All of the accessories and products that we used were provided and everything explained on its correct use and using tools safely.

Lauren the course tutor has a lot of experience, was knowledgeable and shared a lot of useful hints and tips. Lauren even went out of her way to help me with additional things such as how to put in hair extensions and veils as well as helping me recognise what hair accessories complement what styles. I was quite nervous but Lauren had a calming effect on me and really put me at ease. She took me through the styles at my pace so I never felt rushed or pressured and felt that she really got the best out of me by encouraging me all the way through.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to learn Bridal Hair.

Thank you so much for the SFX training over the last few days. It has given me a brilliant insight as to what is required for a SFX Make-up artist and can't wait to start on my Halloween project.
