This evening course will provide you with knowledge and skills within the eye enhancement area of the beauty industry, in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.

It will help you build confidence as you learn to carry out an eyelash and eyebrow tint, shape eyebrows using manual and automatic tweezers and apply false lashes, using both strip and individual types.

These treatments are popular with clients especially at certain times of the year like holiday time and the party season.

In addition, you will learn salon etiquette, professional standards of a beauty therapist, consultation techniques and good practice within the beauty industry.
