Beauty therapists have a wide job role including anything from manicure and aromatherapy to electrolysis and massage therapy! If this is a potential career for you, you can be trained to do face and body massage, leg waxing, eyebrow shaping, pedicure and even ear piercing. You’ll be able to work in a salon, spa, health club, hotel, holiday centre, health spas and cruise ships. You may also work in these places as a nail technician, holistic therapist, beauty consultant or in sales. This profession requires a good understanding of health and safety as well as a technical understanding of the products used. Beauty care involves learning about facial care, manicures, cosmetics and good grooming. In most areas of hair and beauty you’ll also cover reception duties and how to deal with customers, as well as ordering stock and maintaining records and accounts.
