There are many reasons to think about studying a beauty course – The industry is growing year on year which means additional prospects for beauty therapists and an increase in clientele. The Beauty Industry is perfect for those who are outgoing, creative individuals. It is a client facing industry and suits people who enjoy interacting with others on a regular basis. If you are currently contemplating the idea of a career in beauty then this article is for you!
Beauty courses provide a holistic learning style covering everything that is needed to become a qualified beauty therapist and start your first job in the industry.
Upon completing a diploma or course within beauty therapy there are a variety of different career paths that you can take. One of the most popular routes is to head down the beauty salon route offering clients a wide range of beauty treatments from facials, makeup, massages and a variety of other treatments. In addition to this, you can head into a range of different industries such as film / TV makeup, theatrical makeup and a range of Spa treatments.
Potential to become your own boss
For many, the idea of becoming their own boss is a dream come true – With beauty therapy, there is always the option to become your own boss through the setting up of your own mobile business. This will allow you to build your own client base and choose who to work with. This is perfect for those who have always dreamed of owning their own business and can remain dedicated and organised. If you are looking to head down this route then our Beauty Courses are perfect to give you all the fundamental information you need.
Flexible working hours
One of the great things about working within the beauty therapy industry is that there is often the ability to work to flexible hours and work around any other personal commitments that you may have. A traditional working week for a beauty therapist may result in some weekdays becoming your days off and having to work through weekends to meet the demands of customers
With the industry continually growing and there being an ever-growing focus on beauty treatments there is a constant demand of people looking for a qualified beauty therapist – Whilst it is good to know all areas of beauty therapy it can often be better to focus on a few areas so that you become an expert in that area as opposed to being a jack of all trades. It is important to note that there is nothing wrong with working in a variety of different areas and covering a range of treatments
Another big plus for working in the beauty therapy industry is that you can be creative in all that you do. In the morning you may be working on some massage treatments for a client and then the afternoon could involve a complete restyle of someone’s make-up and change of their nail style. You can be creative in the creation of new and exciting styles for customers to try and also the more skills you work on the more scope for you to be even more creative.
Working a 9-5 job can sometimes be boring – with beauty therapy there are a variety of different jobs that you could end up doing – Everyday you will have new clients walking through the door who will want different things. One client may want to work on their Nails and the other may be looking for a massage to help reduce stress. The more treatments and skills you can offer the more variation that there will be for your job. This is one of the main reasons that people consider working within the industry.
