Please do not!

As all previous comments, this is asking for disaster. In the perspective of a full time student, I take PRIDE in my clients knowing that I am not yet licensed, why? Because i want feedback being  a LEARNING individual, comments are a way for Esthetician’s to grow and expand their skills, this is how we learn tips and tricks and to provide even better services for other clients! This also gives us the opportunity to build clientele and make connections! 

 Now, as a clients perspective on this proposal, this is a high concern for safety. This proposal would give leeway for mistakes that can be prevented! Please imagine the fury and anger if YOU were a client having a great day and you give your trust to an establishment that takes advantage of this. Imagine this- walking into a well known tattoo parlor for a piece of art that you have been thrilled to get, your artist finishes their work and you end up with an art piece a toddler could draw. As for the Esthetics field- if I were a paying client, and my Esthetician made a bad mistake that should have been prevented due to me knowing at the time of the service that this person is still learning, I would be off the walls. So please do not make the mistake of other people’s well being for their safety. Thank you..
