Lizzie was pleased to place 22 CIDESCO and CIBTAC students in prestigious spas and salons around the world in April 2012. The girls all went off to their various locations to work hard for 2 weeks, learning the ins and out of the industry. The girls came back with a great enthusiasm for graduating in July 2012.
