Hands-on: Cosmetics

hands-on-cosmetics-page-banner.jpg

New. Innovative. Interactive. Hands On.

This isn't a course where you sit in a chair hour after hour and observe, wishing you could get in there and try. This is a course where you come and work hand-in-hand with an expert in a risk-free, state-of-the-art environment. It's a chance to practice, ask questions, add new high-demand cosmetic services to your practice, and perfect your techniques.

You will work with simulated head models so that you can see what you are doing to perfect your technique. You will be able to practice until you are comfortable, with an expert working alongside you.
