Are you wishing to up your Pedi game?
Then this is the course for you. We will go through the stages of consultation, area set up, Pedicure procedure each step of the way. 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.
What are the benefits of an E-Pedi?
- It creates a more focused bespoke treatment rather than a generic pedicure that gives an overall pamper of the foot.
- It allows you to pinpoint and focus on the reduction of problem areas of the foot
- No more vigorous arm actions to get the job done, the exfoliation is created by the revolutions of the E-file and the technology within the specialised E-file bits
- No need for water, bowls and messy products creating a hygienically controlled environment
