The Beauty Course is divided into three units, involving both practical developments of treatments and working through assignments to build up a portfolio of evidence.
In unit one students learn the importance of health and safety involved in beauty; then they learn about nail art as well as master manicure and pedicure treatments.
The students then get a chance to design their own client record cards to recognise the value of consultations.
Unit two, students learn the structure of the skin, imperfections that we can and cannot treat. This leads learners onto students completing face-ale treatments.
In the last unit, students learn the art of make-up application and completing our final presentation on make-up design.
