Overview

Worth billions of pounds in the UK, beauty therapy has always been a successful industry. More students are choosing to study beauty therapy qualifications to kick-start an amazing career. From offering nail art to facial treatments, there are many ways for women and men to look their best. Anyone completing beauty therapy courses is opening a whole new career in which they will be in demand.

With one client, you could create bespoke nail art that sets them apart from everyone else, or you may help a bride to design her make up for the big day, followed by eyebrow shaping and waxing for another client. The more skills you can offer, the more variety you will have and not just on one given day, but throughout your career.

Beauty therapy and the services you offer are all about the people. You can have a huge impact on someone and their confidence in themselves. If you are a people-person, have tact and diplomacy, as well as a natural ability to connect with people, as a beauty therapist, you will be forever popular.

Some students on beauty therapy courses choose to find employment at a beauty salon, spa or clinic. They enjoy being part of a team and may have the opportunity to take part in further training specific to that company. They may like the security of being employed and prefer the hours of work. It may also be that they don’t have the room or premises to offer their services on a self-employed basis. Or, you may decide to open your own high-street clinic or spa or offer your services to clients in the comfort of their own home. You could also convert a room in your home to offer your popular beauty therapy services from home. You won’t need to worry about job or income security either, as with high-quality qualifications and beauty therapy courses, the services you offer will be in demand.
