WHAT WE STAND FOR

Integrity

The school is based on a system of values. We stand behind our commitment to you, our students. You have put your trust in us to help you start a new career. We take your trust seriously and know we will deliver on our commitment.

Professionalism

In order to become a professional, you need to train in a professional environment. Our Practice-based professional education is possible because of the busy clinic/salon floor. Practice make perfect. You can’t learn by working mostly on a manikin. You will be busy with clients.

Self-confidence

What is the result from graduating from a school with an active clinic/salon? – the most important thing of all for a new professional – SELF CONFIDENCE. Lu Ross Academy will help you gain the Self-confidence you need in the health and beauty care industry.

Quality
