Case Study: Vanessa Cuda – Italy

Vanessa Cuda lives in Calabria, Italy’s most southern region. Right at the tip of the country, Calabria is dominated by sun, sea and mountains, and by miles and miles of sandy beaches. The capital of Calabria is the city of Catanzaro, and that‘s where you’ll find Vanessa’s beauty and wellness salon ‘Butterfly’. Vanessa is an ambitious health professional with a number of other interests, including running a leather and jewellery shop at Calabria’s Lamezia airport. Vanessa is currently studying TrichoCare Education’s Introduction to Trichology Course.

“I’m totally committed to making my clients look and feel great – which is really important for Italian women! I’ve always been interested in the science behind hair and beauty – I even have a degree in biotechnology. That’s why I wanted to add trichology to my range of skills. We see a lot of clients with damaged hair and problems of hair loss – our Mediterranean climate can be really harsh on the hair and skin – and I want to be able to help them.”

“I searched for trichology courses on the internet and found Trichocare. The course looked very interesting and extensive – just what I was looking for. I’m really enjoying it. Of course, the studying is all in English, but since I was born in Canada my English is pretty good and it’s not a real problem. Also, I get really good support from my course tutor, and the feedback to my assignments comes very quickly.”

“Once I’ve completed the Introduction Course, I definitely intend to go on to do the fuller, one-year Certificate course. There’s no-one else here who is offering this kind of expert advice to clients. It makes good business sense to develop our range of services – and we’ll have the satisfaction of helping our clients with their problems.”

“I would certainly recommend the Course to anyone, wherever they are in the world!”

Vanessa is studying the Trichocare Education Introduction to Trichology Course, a distance learning course which also has optional lectures on special topics. The course covers detailed elements of the full Level 4 Certificate in Trichology course and provides students with a good rounded knowledge of trichology. The certified CPD course is endorsed by HABIA and covers all key areas of trichology including diagnostic skills, nutrition, controlling risk, chemistry of hair and beauty products as well as how to offer and deliver trichology services.
