Has the pandemic made you think that you want to change careers completely? With more of a focus on wellbeing and people wanting to de-stress after such a tough year, it’s a great time to get into the beauty industry.
Or maybe you’re already in the industry but you’ve noticed that clients are demanding different treatments now so you need to upskill.
It can be confusing deciding which treatments to train in, so I’ve put together some food for thought.
Here’s my guide to which beauty course you should invest in.
Pick something you’re passionate about
Do you care about your clients’ wellbeing and want to help them relax? It might be a good idea to go down the holistic treatments route when you’re thinking about which beauty course you should invest in. Look for a course that matches your passion with your values.
Think about how you want to train
When you’re deciding on which beauty course you want to do and which provider to choose, is flexibility important to you? Do you need training that fits around your family and other commitments? Here at the Academy, we always aim to be flexible with training days and dates because we know that people have such busy lives.
Look at other beauty businesses in your area
If there are a lot of nail technicians in your local area, it makes sense that you might want to avoid specialising in nails. Look at what your actual/potential competitors are doing-what beauty course could you invest in that would set you apart?
Think about a course that trains you in multiple treatments
If you’re just starting off, you’ll want to start earning as soon as possible. A combination course like our 6-Day Beauty Specialist Diploma covers all of the treatments clients would expect on a menu of services and it will get you off to a great start.
Consider going mobile
Some clients will be itching to get back in the salon, but some will be fearful, even with Covid-safe measures in place. This makes it a good time to think about investing in a mobile beauty therapist course. As well as being able to offer clients treatments in the comfort of their own home, it will give you a lot more flexibility too.
Think about going back to basics
One thing about the lockdown was that clients went back to basics; they started looking after their skin because they were wearing less makeup and rather than rely on nail extensions, they started looking after their nails at home. That’s not to say they won’t ever want extensions again, but it wouldn’t hurt to go back to basics with the course you train in and the treatments you offer. Think offering facial treatments and teaching clients how to look after their skin, and offering gel polish or manicures with products that promote healthy strong natural nail growth.
Has the lockdown made you think about switching careers or changing up the treatments you offer? There’s no better time to get into a rewarding career in the beauty industry to help people feel good again.
