We haven't had much of a chance to talk about the Olympia Beauty Show? Tell me what interested you about the show and why? Did anyone buy anything exciting?

A day in the life of a student beauty therapist

Hi there,

You've all been working so hard towards achieving your practical beauty units. At this point in time, you must be acknowledging that you have a good idea what it would be like to work in a salon. You have demonstrated skills not only working on clients, but dealing with customer services, working as a team and operating the smooth running of the salon.

What I would like you to do over the next couple of weeks is to write a journal of what is like for you to work in the salon. You can write about it over a week's period, explaining the challenges you have faced, taking pictures of the work you have produced and summarising what you have learnt.

I will have a camera so please ask me for it and you can take pictures, we can then transfer it onto your blog, with a write up of your journal.

Muscles of the face and upper body

In our muscles lesson, I told you I would give you the website address for the anatomy and physiology videos. Look at the useful links section on the left.

Welcome to our blog

Hi there,

This is new learning material that I'm trying out. It's trial and error so please bear with me. What I hope it will do is reinforce learning in the class and just remind you of events that are coming up. I would really appreciate your comments which you can add my clicking on comments link below.

Over the next few weeks some of you may wish to make your own blog which will link to this blog and enable you to build an online portfolio. For example, I know some of you are interested in make-up and have produced some fantastic work. Why not take photographs and put them on the blog?
