Reviews on this course

4.0 06/02/2018
What I would highlight: Excellent course. It will definilitey help you get an idea on what beauty therapy is. But you need to watch a lot of online videos and do a lot of practice on friends to understand this field. It is also expensive to buy all the products and equipment... But I still love it.
What could be improved: Nothing
