Ready to be a beautician?
The role of a beautician is truly diverse; it can include a whole range of different skills and ways of working.
Whatever your ambitions in the beauty industry, the best place to start is with a broad degree that gives you a strong grounding in all the basics: we recommend the Level 2 course in Beauty Therapy. This will train you in all the most popular treatments that clients will return to you for, again and again - whether you later decide to work in a salon, or go solo to become a mobile therapist.
This course schools you in everything from waxing, manicures and pedicures to eye treatments and facials. On top of this, you'll pick up essential skills in professional makeup application.
Next, when you've decided which aspects of the beauty trade you enjoy most, move onto a Level 3 course to hone your skills in a particular field - perhaps nails, or massage. Whatever you feel you'd like to specialise in and share with your clients, once you're a fully qualified beautician.
So what kinds of jobs can you expect to go into, once you've earned your Level 2 and 3 in Beauty Therapy? Below are just a few of your many exciting options…
Beauty lecturer: Want to share your skills and knowledge with others? Why not teach Beauty Therapy for a living?
Makeup artist for media: Ever watched a movie, looked at the lead actor or actress and thought: I wonder who did their makeup? Well, it could be you if you're trained to Level 3! If this role interests you, you could also think about a career as a makeup artist in fashion, TV or theatre.
Cruise ship therapist: Fancy seeing the world while doing your dream job? This could be your next career move. Help holiday-makers relax by offering massages and other soothing treatments, and explore beautiful, far-flung countries during your time off.
