Qualified Beauty Therapists have more choice than ever as to which direction they would like their career to take. Choices range from starting your own salon to working in the makeup industry, in day spas, destination spas and resorts or cruise ships to taking their career to the next level by undertaking training in advanced aesthetics, such as IPL, peels, Laser or needling, to gain work in the growing Cosmetic and Skin industry.
The demand for highly skilled, knowledgeable and professional beauty therapists is growing with so many new trends and this starts with good foundation training. If you are serious about a sustainable career in the industry, your initial training is very important, and being trained at a beauty school with trainers who will give you more than just the ‘basics’ should be a priority in your selection.
Clients also have higher expectations of the results their therapist will deliver, and employers are demanding well trained staff with a professional approach. Employers will judge your potential as an employee through the quality of your skills as well as your knowledge and confidence to promote products and services.
