I’m so glad I chose the Akzentz program through DK Beauty… I felt confident I knew what I was doing, and that I had been taught “the right way of doing things”.

I’m not a native English speaker and was concerned about if I would be able to keep up with the information in class and be able to finish my exams in time. They were helpful and understanding and help me with all my questions. The teach good skill with the best product and I knew I made the right choice. The course has lot of information, but being (a) mom of 2 children, being able to do my work from home on days not in class fit my schedule better.
