"Before I took your online training course I was guessing the best ways to airbrush my clients and I never knew how the clients were going to look. After watching the videos I learned the best ways for the clients to "pose" to make their tans the most natural looking and beautiful. I learned the right things to say to up sell retail products and how to pre-book my clients to keep them coming back!"
