Course registration opens on 1 February 2022 with an early bird course registration fee of £179 + VAT (normal price – £295 + VAT from 1 March 2022) with the course officially launching on 1 March 2022. Black Skin Directory will also make a £10 donation to the Beauty Backed Trust (which aims to assist everyone who works or wants to work in the beauty industry) for each course purchased.

Created for skin therapists and beauty professionals, the course curriculum consists of 33 lessons and involves anatomy and physiology of skin of colour, assessing and treating skin of colour, key ingredients to help skin of colour, cultural considerations and more.

Additionally, the platform will host a library of educational articles and resources to enhance the learning experience.

Founder Dija Ayodele commented, ‘We have been aware of the distinct lack of education provided by the formal education sector around skin of colour, and after two years of hosting sold out workshops we are thrilled to provide permanent online access to therapists and beauty professionals to further their knowledge, build their confidence and empower them to meet the needs of their skin of colour clients.’
