Course for beginners – 42 hours

The Cosmetology Program offered by Académie Dectro is ideal for anyone who wants to counsel or advise customers on the specifics of cosmetic products, rather than to perform treatments on the clients. The training within this program is focused primarily on the diagnosis of the skin as well as learning all aspects of cosmetic products: their fabrication, composition, and application, so that you are expertly prepared to effectively advise your future clientele. This course is specifically designed to meet the demands of the public, and the most demanding of employers. The course is structured in a theoretical format that is complemented by educational materials. It is mandatory to wear a black lab coat (available at Dectro International).
