The industry of beauty therapy in recent years has seen an almost exponential rise in the number of people wanting to begin their career within the industry. If this is for you here you can find out what qualifications you need to get your career kickstarted in the beauty therapy sector. However, following that if you’re either wanting to start a career in beauty therapy or if you’re still undecided today we are going to answer a very common question which is how much can you expect to earn as a beauty therapist.
As is the case with many jobs, many variables come into play that determines how much you can earn such as the organisation that you’re working for, experience, hours and much more. So we are going to go for a general average so the salary you could earn could be considerably higher or lower.
As a whole, most beauty therapists will end up with take-home pay of between £12,000 and £17,000 per year. As a salon manager or a senior therapist, you can then expect to take home over £20,000 per year. There is no shortage of demand for beauty therapists and it is an industry that is only going to continue to grow. Some salons may only pay for jobs that are done rather than on a salary. And there is also the option to become a freelance beauty therapist and your boss once you’ve qualified.
