How to get started:

The best way to get started is to take a class. You want hands-on, one-on-one training to master this new skill and you can’t get that from just watching a DVD or you-tube clip.

We have training facilities in Albany & East Tamaki, Auckland as well as Whangarei, Tauranaga & Christchurch.

We run a session 4 times a week for individuals or groups of up to 4.

We can travel to you and complete the training in your treatment room.

This option is very popular for salons having all their staff trained at once, or for salons outside of Auckland. (T&C apply)

Our online training sessions are an easy way for those who are unable to travel.

We use either Zoom/FaceTime/Skype for these sessions.

Our educator will be online with you guiding you through the training as if she was in the room with you.

What tools and materials will I receive or need to buy?

If you find you’re using multiple blades to complete a single treatment then you are probably using an inferior blade, like the #10 or #14 blade.
