I actually got a 1-2-1 for my l&p conversion as I had come over from germany for a holiday to see family and thought "I'll do a course while I'm here". There wasn't any and the lovely Lorraine offered me a 1-2-1 for the conversion price and I loved it.
I am looking into it again as I can't get a date to suit just now.
From a teachers point of view, I have taught gazillions of 121's and they are my favourite thing to teach. so .... I will tell you that I never think an hour is enough. If you want an hour to work then be prepared with a model who already has tips on and blended at least 80% (unless you are sculpting of course) and then you are not wasting time doing things that you have not come to work on.
Having said that, if someone has booked only one hour and I choose to go over so that the student has the best experience, I do not charge for it ... We're not to the minute, we don't put on a timer lol. An hour is better than nothing so if you can't afford two hours then go for the hour and do as much as you can to help ahead of time. : hug:
I'm sure I will need a few extra hours, but so long as they are worthwhile then they are worth every penny. There's a discussion going on in another thread about standards, ethics and morals along with trade and profession in this industry. Clients deserve the best so that's what I need to achieve.
1-2-1 sounds ideal.
I did a CND conversion a couple of years back which was a 1 to 1. It was brilliant (although having a great tutor helped) and it done wonders for my nail skills. I came away really satisfied and eager to learn more as it all clicked into place what I had been having troulble with. I've since completed the CND L&p Master nail tech course and I'm now doing the Brisa gel. Just can't get enough of learning about nails and everything CND have to offer. I just love it.
