Cosmetics Christina Wicki

Even as a medical practice assistant, I enjoyed working with people.

After my training as a specialist beautician in 2009 and my business activity in Bülach, I have now been lucky enough to pamper you in my small but fine cosmetics studio on Roggenfarstrasse in Eglisau since 2013.
