I really enjoyed this class and the girls I worked with. It was educational and fun! Everyone was easy going and wanted to learn everything they could! I personally wanted to educate myself on how to apply makeup to someone else other then myself and even more tips & tricks I didn't already know. Courtney was super helpful and an amazing teacher. Very fun personality and dedicated to see her girls rise! I would recommend this class to anyone and recommend Courtney as a makeup artist to everyone! If I could take this class again just for fun I would.

Courtney is wonderful! I was a little reluctant at first about the class feeling maybe "too old" or "not hip enough" but it was awesome. I began the class to just add a service in my salon, but found a new love in makeup thanks to Courtney. I learned so much in the makeup artistry class. Courtney strives to make everyone feel important and confident in the class. She becomes more like a best friend then a teacher. She encouraged me the entire way and spent extra time on her day off to help me with hair design. I enjoyed every aspect of class and would highly recommend to everyone. I would also recommend Courtney for her professionalism as a teacher, makeup artist and cosmetologist.

Courtney Hurley is an excellent teacher with the knowledge and experience of both a model as well as a make up artist. I took Courtney's class and learned not only make up design but history and trends as well. Courtney was able to work with my hectic schedule and provide a service I hope to utilize in the future as I continue to learn and grow as an artist.
I highly reccomend this class to anyone interested in becoming a make up artist, fashion designer, or even someone who would like to learn how to do make up the right way.

I really enjoyed learning all the different tricks you can do with makeup. I have to say my favorite part was the eyeliner! I never knew you could do it that way, I'm so sheltered! :) Now I'm an eyeliner lover, eyeshadow blender, and false eyelash wearer! All while having a blast with some great women! AND I looked amazing for my birthday celebration afterward! Thanks Court!

- Lindsay Porta

As a photographer a makeup artist pushes my work to the next level. Shooting the models made up by Courtneys Glam graduates is amazing. All the artist come out of the class with a new skill set that sets them apart in their field. Courtneys is a pleasure to work with and by seeing the work of her students is an excellent instructor as well. Anybody interested in hair and makeup should definitely take advantage of the services offered by the CG Salon and Boutique.

Courtney is a phenomenal instructor, a talented makeup artist, as well as an amazing human being! I took her makeup artist certification course in February of 2010 and was amazed by how much I learned in such a short amount of time. The course is very hands on and Courtney's teaching style makes everthing very easy to understand. Courtney is very encouraging and truley believes in all of the students. She game me a great sense of confidence which helped me complete the course and move on to be a succesful makeup artist.

I am so thankful for the experience I had working with Courtney Hurley. She taught me how to have confidence in myself and she was always encouraging me. She was very easy to talk to and always understanding as well. She taught me so much about modeling and she was so good at what she did. I would have never even dreamed of having as good photos as I did while modeling. Due to Courtney's guidance and encouragement, my photos got better and better each photo shoot. Courtney worked hard at what she did and was always looking for paid work for her models. Not only was she an awesome model manager, but she was also an amazing friend. I am very blessed to have worked with Courtney Hurley and to have her in my life :)
