Top Make-up Schools in Ghana: Courses, Tuition fees, and Contact Information

Many young ladies and women go to schools to learn makeup artistry, cosmetology, and beauty therapy because that is what people are patronizing now.

Nowadays, people prefer ‘fashion designers’ over seamstresses and tailors. It’s now beauticians, nail technicians, and beauty therapists, and they have all stepped up their games.

Instead of becoming an apprentice and learn on the job, people now go to schools with certificates to learn and train for the profession.
