Beauty therapy isn’t only one of the most dynamic and exciting industries you could ever choose to be a part of, but with your hard-earned LBTA qualification in hand, the sky is literally the limit. Of course you could work as a therapist, nail technician or make-up artist in a salon or spa (or even for yourself) and your skills will always be in demand, but what about if you’re in the mood for something more adventurous?
Want to see the world? Working in a salon on a luxury cruise ship means you won’t only travel the globe in style while you work your magic on a truly international clientele, you’ll also have the very latest beauty technology at your fingertips. Hours can sometimes be long, but the rewards are enormous – not only will you visit exotic places most of us can only dream about but you’ll also be that special person who makes your client’s holiday experience glamorous, gorgeous and stylishly unforgettable!
TV and Film
Or maybe the silver screen is more your thing? A make-up artist in TV or film production is one of the most important people on set because, without your talents, the stars wouldn’t shine so brightly! It’s a competitive industry and the hours and working conditions can be demanding, but just think about the possibilities: today you could be behind the scenes in Albert Square, tomorrow you could be adding a bruise to the cheek of Ross Poldark, next week you could be applying body paint to an invader from another planet… if your heart yearns for ‘Lights, Camera, Action’ this is definitely an option to consider!
Whether you’re working on a photo shoot for Vogue or preparing supermodels for the Versace catwalk, being a make-up artist in the fashion industry will test your technical, creative and interpersonal skills to the limit – but look at what you’ll get back in return. Not only will you travel the world alongside top models, photographers and designers, but you’ll also be on the cutting edge of one of the most vibrant and exciting industries on the planet! If you’re always one step ahead when it comes to style and glamour, or if you’ve ever dreamed that your make-up designs could be the hit of next season’s runway, this is the beauty career path you’re looking for!
And those are only three of the hundreds of fabulous possibilities available to you once you’ve graduated with the LBTA because when you train with us you don’t just get a qualification, you get the skills and the freedom to realise your dreams. So why not dream big?
