Look to Isa Carstens Academy – Beauty Therapists’ First Choice

“You only have one chance to make a first impression” may be a cliché, but like most other clichés or commonplace phrases and sayings, it is completely true. That’s undoubtedly why it became a cliché in worldwide use in the first place.

That first impression is the one which lasts and will forever be associated with you, whether you are attending a job interview, meeting a stranger at a social event or making a sales call. The same holds true of your home, business premises, professional practice or educational institution.

First impressions, positive or negative, matter and they endure, irrespective of future encounters. The subconscious impact of one’s first impression is so strong that it’s very likely to influence your reaction. It’s the thing that will influence you to buy, keep in contact, employ the job candidate, dine at a restaurant or decide to enrol for courses at a particular educational institute.

Beauty Business

At Isa Carstens Academy, we’re fully aware of the impact and value of making and maintaining a great first impression upon our students, open day visitors and clients, who entrust their beauty therapy treatments to our highly-trained, well-turned-out professional beauticians.

When you’re associated with the beauty industry, every aspect of your environment should reflect the purpose and requirements of creating beauty. This applies to the appearance of your premises or salon, the staff members who work there, students enrolled for courses at your educational facility, and other areas which are seldom, if ever, seen by outsiders – students’ accommodation.
