The Anatomy of the Head and Facial Structure

About the Course
This course provides essential knowledge of the anatomy within the head and face, and how it relates to salon services. This course teaches students to recognize the facial and cranial skeletal structures, the muscular structures therein, and the nerves that serve primary functions of concern. Students will learn important information about the location of anatomical structures, how they connect to another, and the functions they serve.
After learning more about anatomy, students will take a closer look at the specific anatomy of facial and cranial structures. Students will then learn about how anatomy plays a part in the services they provide to clients, how the services they provide affects anatomy, and how to use their knowledge to better navigate services. 
By the end of the course, students will have a broader understanding of the anatomy of the head and face, as well as how the underlying structures function and work together. This anatomical knowledge will provide the basis for more informed decisions regarding client services, and appropriate treatments.
