Who: Valerie Christofel

What Course: Beauty Industry Essentials

How did you find us: I’d been working in the beauty industry for about 27 years and I took some time off to take care of my family. I found Beauty Industry Essentials while scrolling through Facebook. I came across a YB x F.I.T. ad and I was like OMG this looks very interesting to me! It’s very inspiring and it just keeps me going! 

Why: I wanted to get back into the Beauty Game. I wanted to see what was out there. This course is a great way to jump back in. So much has changed over the past 5-10 years. The terminology has changed, everything has changed and taking this course is a great way to relearn everything. I am  excited to learn from Bobbi Brown (course contributor). I am really inspired right now and I can’t wait to complete the program and get my certificate. 

Experience: Hair and makeup artist for films, TV shows, runway and printwork.
