In the world of beauty, professional gurus travel with a not inconsiderable fluidity and make-up artists become hair stylists while hair stylists also equip themselves to work with make-up.
If on the one hand there are make-up artists, who are in most cases freelancers, on the other hand there are hairdressers who already own a salon and have the advantage of being more “exposed” commercially to the public.

The workstation and cosmetic company are the 2 winning elements that will allow your salon to level up, together with training, which is essential even before one thinks about setting up the
