Securing yourself a career within the beauty industry can be a fulfilling and enjoyable one. Being able to do something you enjoy each and every day making people feel better about themselves and their appearance. If this is something that sounds of interest to you there are steps you need to make on the way to becoming a beauty therapist when it comes to qualifications and that’s what we are going to be covering today.
Firstly, so there’s no confusion, let’s look at the range of services that a beauty therapist offers so that you know that you’re wanting to go down the right path:-
- Application of make-up
- Treatments on lashes and brows
- Manicures and pedicures
- Hair removal services
- Facials and skincare
So if you want to go into one of the above professions you indeed will need to get the qualifications to do so which is something we can help with here at Ascend healthcare. So the first two steps on your road to becoming a fully qualified beauty therapist would be to complete your NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Beauty Therapy.
If you want to, whilst you’re studying for both of these qualifications you can also undertake work experience at the same time. For example, as an assistant in a beauty salon. Once you have attained your NVQ Level 2 some salons may take you on as a junior trainee however it is always advisable to get your Level 3 so that you are fully trained. You can choose what niche you wish to go into which include:-
