Are you wishing to up your E-file Prep game?

Then this is the course for you. We will go through the stages of prep using an E-file & show you how to use each and every one of the Willow Cuticle Bits. Here at Willow, we are advocates for the "Willow Way" this means working "Your Way". If you wish to solely use E-file for prep, we have got you covered. If you would like to use a combination of E-file prep and traditional methods, then we are here to support you every step of the way.

There is no right or wrong - it's all about using the method that suits you and we adapt our teaching to each student to complement this.
