Who we are
Pastiche is the brainchild of Florence Barrett-Hill, an internationally acclaimed dermal science educator; practitioner, researcher, and author with a vast experience covering all aspects of non-device based professional aesthetic therapy and paramedical skin care.
Pastiche has been providing advanced education to the professional skin care sector since 1996; initially with the launch of the now renowned Advanced Skin Analysis program in Australasia, and later covering related, specialised topics to help beauty therapists and aestheticians achieve greater levels of understanding about the skin while being independent of brand influence.
At the time, this type of education was both innovative and pioneering; ultimately becoming the catalyst for an appetite for knowledge that has spawned the current University level education in the dermal sciences.
Pastiche Training have been educating skin care practitioners in many parts of the world with face to face programs until the advent of reliable high-speed internet brought the Pastiche classroom in to the reach of anyone-anywhere.
Since Pastiche’s inception, Florence has sought to provide relevant, time current information and present in a form easily assimilated and utilised by clinicians as part of best-practice clinical skin care diagnostic and treatment planning procedures. In addition to training programs, Florence has released many books for the professional skin care community; popular titles include Advanced Skin Analysis and Cosmetic Chemistry for the skin treatment practitioner.
