....and a bit of advice :study: Some of you have been doing nails and 'playing' for a while. Go in with an open mind and FORGET everything you have ever learnt before (I don't mean forever) but for the 1st three days, listen, learn and become sponges. If something you learn seems a complete turnaraound to what you have been taught before, wait until an opportune moment and ask...don't be shy :oops: Our Ambassadors KNOW their stuff and are happy to help you!! Remember that EVERYTHING we teach is backed up with proof and not just CND opinion! :tongue: You will all do well I am sure and we are here to help (but don't ask for assessement q&a's :shock: ). Loof forward to hearing all about it!! (Learn Meeps and Meeps Layla :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ) and see you all next weekend!! ;)
Good luck Layla, Jacky and everyone else doing their foundation course this week.................All those new techs out there, watch out world, Creative is getting bigger as we speak. go get em girls
just to add my encouragement to all you guys who r taking the plunge!
as mrs. geek said, listen & learn (loads)
there are 2 extremes of students;
those who have no previous experience of nails (some haven't even had nail enhancements on themselves)
& those who have been shadowing a nail tech, mayb doing nails as a trainee/ saturday girl for a while.
there are some obvious advantages of having "played" or at least watched the many procedures b4.
however, not only does it depend on who they have been watching, but bad habits r very contagious :shock:
when teaching, i often use analogies of driving.
eg. the student who has been having lessons with uncle fred, may b more confident initially, but they may have picked up shed loads of bad habits that have to b "irradicated" :shock:
wishing you all a great experience :fire:
lol liza xx
the student who has no experience at all will b less confident, & may feel overwhelmed at 1st, but they r fresh to all info given to them.
so........... whatever your previous experience, go in, as mrs. geek said, open minded & ready to learn & have fun :D
lastly, b4 long someone will ask "how long b4 i can work professionally doing nails?"
again, i compare the situation to learning to drive;
how many lessons did it take everyone to learn to be safe on the roads?
to b safe means pass your driving test.
at that stage, how many of u would of applied for a job driving &delivering around london?! :shock:
not many i guess!
so, to pass your foundation class you have to b deemed "safe" to work with these products unattended.
that doesn't necessarily mean that you will/willnot b ready to work full-time in the nail industry.
there will always b a small no. of students that progress quickly because, mayb they've had some great opportunity in a salon b4, during or after their training.
but for most students the foundation class is exactly that., the foundation of your learning.
creative have a superb table of courses that will take you on the journey of progression all the way to the top! & beyond 8)
:oops: spot the deliberate mistake!
my good wishes & sing off somehow managed to get into the middle of my post :shock:
whoops! sorry :oops:
lol liza xx
Good luck Layla, Jacky and everyone,

Well like they have all said Layla,
Forget what you think you know and learn from the facts and technicques shown.....................
If I say forget I mean.......forget it for the time being................
