Anra Faber

Education and training is my passion. My professional career in the Health and Skincare industry started in 1998.  I qualified at Isa Carstens in Stellenbosch and completed both the International CIDESCO and National SAAHSP qualifications.  My career as a therapist started when I worked overseas and locally in Spa’s and Salons for a few years.  I joined Camelot International in Bloemfontein in 2005 as a Junior Lecturer and became the Branch Manager a few years later.  At the end of 2011 I fulfilled my long life dream of starting my own business.  

Qualitas Career Academy was born.  In the heart of the Free State we offer individualized and high quality training. Our focus is small groups with lots of attention and we take pride in what we can offer in the field of Health and Skincare Therapy Training and Development.

Bertha Leonard

Bertha started her journey in the beauty industry in 2006 and fell in love with the lash industry in 2007. Staying in Cape Town and loving the diversity of the beauty industry, Bertha went from working in salons, spa’s and cruise ships to teaching and training all around South Africa.  Bertha is the owner of Capri Beauty and Capri Academy.

Nadine Pretorius-Kruger

My passion for beauty started at a very young age believing, woman should not change how they look, but enhance their natural beauty. I love educating fellow therapists and clients on good health and beauty, so I pursued my passion and completed my studies at The Academy of Beauty Therapy and I am accredited with a Cidesco and Cibtac Diploma. I started my working career in Johannesburg in 2013 as a Spa Therapist where I was trained to work with Xtreme Lashes and then started specialising in Lash Extensions and Permanent Make-up. We relocated back to Hillcrest at the end of 2017 and Secrets Beauty Room was born. I am specialising as an Xtreme Lashes Stylist and Xtreme Lashes Trainer and I believe “Natural beauty is a blink away”.

Elma Santiago Barros

Elma is an ambitious and driven young lady from Angola which never thought she would be this passionate about the beauty industry as she is today. She started her career in lash extensions with Xtreme Lashes back in 2016, became an Advanced Volumation Stylist and later on an Xtreme Lashes Trainer, in 2017.  She couldn’t wish for a better opportunity and having to work with the best in the industry!
