Through this blog post, we will be highlighting why the beauty industry is a great choice and the benefits of completing a short course.
Why Work In The Beauty Industry?
The UK beauty industry is currently booming! With many new salons opening, beauty therapists going mobile and social media enabling free advertisement. The beauty industry is estimated to be worth billions of pounds now and expected to continue growing. It seems that regardless of the state of the economy, people will spend money to make sure they look good! With a beauty qualification, your employment options are vast. Whether you want to work in a salon down the road or on a cruise ship in Hawaii, we have a short course that will make it happen!
Why Study A Short Beauty Course?
There are many reasons why you’d want to focus on completing a short course rather than throw yourself into years of learning. If any of the reasons we list below are relatable to you, then maybe, a short term course is for you! Short courses can assist you in gaining knowledge of new trends whilst you’re working. They will also ensure that you are always refreshing your CV with new skills in your trade and remaining up to date on the latest technology.
Are you at a point in your life, where you’ve been working for a while and want to try a new career? Or do you want to gain a new skill that could increase your profits? Have you been offering your clients the same 5 treatments for the last 5 years?
As a beauty therapist, treatments are always getting better as technological advancements develop. Trends are changing along with your clients wants. Completing a short course every so often is an investment that will ensure you remain in demand and can adapt with the ever-changing times!
Gain A More In-depth Understanding In Specific Areas:
You may want to complete a short course as you already know what interests you and want to focus on that. For example, you may know that microblading eyebrows is the field you want to gain expertise in. For you then, there is no point in studying a fully comprehensive beauty therapy course! A short beauty course would benefit you in the long run as you’d focus solely on what you are interested in, ensuring you are invested and interested.
Completing a course will let you meet new people who have the same interests as you. These people can become great friends, colleagues and connections within the beauty industry. These connections can also help you with your beauty career journey. You never know, the person you end up sitting next to could be your future business partner! Creating those connections with like-minded professionals is almost as beneficial to your future as the course.
Accessing the latest equipment
Are you an already qualified beauty therapist who might want to introduce Laser hair removal treatments to your clients? Want to know what the latest equipment to invest in is? A short course would help you figure out the best equipment to purchase based on what the school is using. You would also be able to practice on real people whilst completing your studies! So that when you have completed your course, you could immediately start working and already know how to use the equipment.
We offer the option to become a Microblading Artist in just 7 weeks!
