We are thrilled to announce that after 18 months in the making, the Award Winning Lecenté Education is here!

The NEW and exciting innovative BABTAC accredited courses are launching in June 2021 and are set to provide the industry with high standard learning and qualifications.

We want to positively contribute to the industry with their Education, to help raise the standards and has one primary ethos: To create THE best, well equipped, knowledgeable nail professionals in the industry.

Courses are led by a team of skilled, highly trained hand-picked Educators, headed up by Lead Educator, Theresa Foddering. With a primary focus on science and anatomy, those attending the courses will cover all units to ensure any gaps from previous education are covered, so even long established professionals will receive a ‘refresh’ to keep their knowledge current.

The courses have been designed with modern teaching practices; with part online and part in person. The digital environment allows learning to be accessible for everyone in this ‘new normal’ we are living in, whilst still receiving regular teaching and support from their educator including a 1-2-1 virtual session. The assessment day will be in person to ensure those high standards are met.

We have developed an innovative online Education portal which will be available to students who book on to a course. This will house all the learning units and materials students need along with the facility to complete regular knowledge checks, monitor their course progress, submit work and case studies and receive ongoing support from their educator.

There’s no denying these are strange times for all of us, especially for nail technicians who are unable to work due to government guidelines. These are affecting nail techs and beauty workers all over the world; so how can we make time at home to be productive, even while we’re unable to work? Today we’re going to chat about some of our tips for staying motivated while at home.

Practising Nail Art & Skills

Now is the perfect time to master that one skill you just haven’t gotten around to trying! Want to master full coverage foil? Or stamping? Or ombre? Now is the time to practise! Once you’re back to work you’ll be raring to go with brand new designs to offer your clients.

Create New Design Displays

Whether you display your colour and design offerings on tips or in another special way, now is the time to get creative and find a new way to present your gorgeous designs. Maybe your nail pops are looking a bit grubby from wear and tear, so it’s time to paint a new set! Or if you feel like thinking outside the box, imagine new ways to show your clients what you can give them when they return to the salon.

Creating Press On Nails for Your Clients

A fantastic way to keep business going is to start selling press on nails! We’ve seen some absolutely incredible press ons over on Instagram (don’t forget to tag us so we can see yours!) and so many people are jumping on this bandwagon. You can provide your clients with a temporary way to have lovely nails from their favourite tech, as well as keep business running a little more.

Maintaining A Good Relationship with Your Clients

It’s so important to maintain a good relationship with your clients during this time where you don’t have regular contact with them like you normally would. Think of little gestures you can do, even something small. It doesn’t have to cost anything! Paperless Post offer free online cards that you can send virtually, or if you prefer something a bit more crafty, handmade postcards and gifts are a fantastic idea.

We hope you’re all staying safe during this time! Don’t forget we are still offering 20% off site wide with the code Lecente20 until further notice as well! x
