Gel Basics Plus Course




My basic course is called PLUS because it is a basic course that has an edge over classic basic courses.

It is suitable not only for those who are approaching the subject for the first time in their lives, but also for all those people who have taken a basic course years before and therefore need a refresher and expansion of their knowledge.

It is also suitable for anyone who still has doubts about salon work, because it will cover all the topics they need to work at their best in their own store.
