Now under the Professional Beauty stable, Olympia Beauty has a whole new education offering for 2023. The show will boast two innovative live stages – one focusing on advanced beauty and skin treatment trends and techniques, the other on health, wellbeing and alternative therapies. For nail techs and learners, a specialised programme of nail skill workshops will offer hands-on skill building. Here is just a taste of what’s on offer.
Advanced Beauty Stage
Focusing on the technologies and techniques that will help you take your beauty business to the next level, this stage will deliver live demos and expert advice on strengthening the skin barrier, maximising the results of laser treatments, delivering active ingredients and much more.
