You will study units on: promoting and selling, photographic make-up, anatomy and physiology for makeup services, bridal make-up, airbrush techniques, individual eyelash extensions, client care and consultation, and health and safety.
You will also learn about design and nail art, social marketing, and setting up a business.
You will further develop your knowledge and apply the skills you have learnt through working in a real- life commercial salon and attending work placements throughout the year where you will develop your employability skills.
