Your thesis should be something you could leave in your salon waiting room for your clients to read and enjoy. It should be informative and enjoyable to read. The CIDESCO thesis must be written on a subject directly related to the beauty therapy industry.
The following guidelines have been given to us by CIDESCO to assist us in our evaluation:
The subject matter must be from individual research and not copied from school study notes. Case histories may be included in the project.
The project may be illustrated by artwork, collage, photographs etc (N.B. Only include drawings etc. of a high standard, laser photocopy photographs, illustrations etc. to give a more professional look.)
A bibliography should be made showing where the student obtained information e.g. if you obtain information from books you must record the book’s title and authors name, if you take information from the internet you must list the website address.
An index, introduction and conclusion must be included.
