General Course Information

Alison Warren has a B-Tech Degree in Somatology, Diploma in Dermal Pigmentation, ODETDP National Certificate (7 Combined Courses in Education).
A trainer/educator should always be better qualified than the courses she presents. Experience in this field is of utmost importance. Alison Warren has 25 years experience in the beauty, hairdressing and permanent make up industry.
Our facilitators have completed all the requirements in various systems and techniques.

Our centre is equipped with the necessary equipment i.e. lamps, basins, tables etc. There should be enough space and light. Students receive their own kit, for most courses, so that they can work with it during the course and also have the basics to start their business with.

Each student should receive the necessary attention. We therefore keep our classes small, as the courses are very intensive. The student can decide to do extra classes, at an additional cost. We offer the students support after courses are completed and instructors are available to offer additional help if needed.

The duration of our courses are three to five days and you have three months to complete the full program.
