Presenting the BeautyCE Institute

Our Story

The BeautyCE Institute was spawned by Altogether Marketing LLC, a branding and technology company. Altogether Marketing is owned and led by Ms. Audrey Wiggins, who was a licensed managing nail technician. Prior to entering the industry, she had many marketing clients from different business industries as well as cosmetology, barbering and massage therapy. During her years of practice she continued to increase her client base of professionals from traditional salons, spas and salon lofts (before they were even called lofts). She has been willing to share her knowledge of business with fellow industry professionals. This led to the creation of the small business development series for cosmetologists.
