Loved the teachers and support! They really are behind you 100% to pass the boards. And most of all they teach how it will be in real life not just to pass a test.

Allows us to work with the general public in order to get real world experience and there was plenty of time to study while reporting for hour completion.

A lot of theory is involved in order to learn the important details such as layers of the skin and anatomy. Typically you stick to one teacher whom teaches you hands on as well as textbook/theory and testing/quizzes. During the hands on training you will be shown how to perform: Facials waxing tweezing extractions makeup application skin analysis and so much more Depending on the state you train in the individuals you will train will vary in age and ethnicity. However, a large majority of your classmates will be between 18-30. I found that learning to sell products and retain relevant information about each product was difficult because each product contains so many ingredients. I feel it is very important to learn and retain this important information in order to give feedback to each client. Often times the ingredients you will strive to retain give off certain benefits. So, not only do you have to remember what ingredients are in each product but you must retain the knowledge as to what each ingredient does for the skin. I found the entire program to be enjoyable. It was very fun and exciting learning new ways to increase ones beauty through wellness.

Cons

If you are serious about it, there aren’t many cons with the actual school and what the program entails. I believe what I learned was worth what it costs to attend.

I learned more than was outlined in the curriculum; the instructors I had were and still are passionate about what they know and wanted us to be successful. They made sure we had plenty of hands on application and classroom instruction as well as information about what it is like outside of the classroom. I made some long lasting friendships that won’t ever change; it has been my most memorable and enjoyable enrollment to date.
