Svetlana Makulova, Italy

Living in Italy I dreamed of studying as a stylist, but there were a lot of doubts because of the high price and employment! Much to my happiness, one of the most beautiful days I came across a distance learning ad. I watched several short free videos on the platform and realised that it was mine! I studied on my personal free schedule!

All teachers are really Italians, experienced teachers, very qualified. I began to think in the field of style quite different, the worldview turned upside down. It is very valuable to me.
