Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value. I have to say, I am so lucky to have found Glow College and my instructor Maria Bucci when I was looking for a Nail Enhancements course. I chose this class because as a beauty professional I don’t like being given kits, I like to experiment and find my own things. Instead, I wanted quality education which is exactly what I received from Maria at Glow College in Brampton. I was so pleased with the amount of care and attention Maria gave to teach us every little thing we needed to know. She was so kind and patient, and encouraging, whilst telling us our faults. She doesn’t falsely encourage you and send you out to make mistakes.
