Creating Couture Treatments on a Shoestring Budget

In our challenging economy, clients want to use every penny carefully and so do you! In this seminar, Jackie will divulge great tips and tricks to get the most bank for your client's buck and for yours. Learn which areas of the budget can be stretched and still have a good result and in which areas you need to spend the money. Learn how you can lower construction costs while still offering a cutting edge couture product to your clientele with new designs and materials. You will leave this class with up to 20 brand new JVT designs to add to your portfolio.

Here are the TOP THREE THINGS you'll take away from this class:
  1. Learn where to skimp and where to spend to get a couture look without busting the budget.
  2. Discover how to construct some new designs that give a couture look without giving sticker shock.
  3. Learn where you can cut your fabrication costs to either save yourself or your client some money.
