As some of you may know many moons ago I used to work in the beauty industry as a therapist, and then went on to own my own salon! So the beauty industry, and specifically working in it, is something I know a fair bit about. Do you always take great pride in your appearance? Are you that friend that everybody comes to and asks to help them get ready for a night out or big event? Does nothing make you happier than making yourself and others look and feel a million dollars? If so, then a career in beauty therapy could well be for you. With more girls and guys than ever before willing to pay for beauty services, it’s a wise career move that could seriously boost your income too. As a beauty therapist, you’ll be able to train in and offer a wide range of different services, whilst working for an employer or setting up your own business, making it one of the most flexible career options out there. Carrying out a cosmetic beauty treatment can be super fun and it’s a fantastic career for anyone interested in beauty. Here are some beauty therapies definitely worth training in if this is the career for you.
Around 15 years ago the semi-permanent makeup market really took off – I had my eyebrows and eyeliner done in the salon I was working in at the time. The industry has really taken off since then and evolved in so many ways. In the past, those who weren’t so blessed in the eyebrow department either had to make do with what they had, or tried to fill their brows out with pencils and gels. And whilst brow gels, powders and pencils aren’t going anywhere, microblading is certainly a more popular option for those who want a fuller brow without the daily upkeep. Simply put, microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo that lasts for a few months at a time. It’s done in such a way that it looks as natural as the hair and the client doesn’t need to worry about pencilling their eyebrows every morning. If you do start offering microblading treatments you’ll need to get the best microblading supplies in order to keep clients happy. It’s definitely in high demand and should certainly be on the top of your list of services to offer as a beauty therapist. You can get started with these essential eyebrow microblading supplies and training programs by visiting Ink Defined who are evolving the beauty industry standards through their new approaches.
Yes, most girls (and guys who wear it) are more than able to do their own makeup, but nothing quite beats that professional finish, particularly if you’ve got a special event to attend. Whether it’s a party, wedding, graduation or something else, you’ll always find people who are willing to pay you to make them look their best by enhancing their natural beauty with makeup. If you’re getting into a beauty career, training to do makeup well can take you anywhere from working with bridal parties to doing makeup for TV and movies.
More and more people are realizing the importance of taking good care of their skin, and there have never been so many lotions, potions and treatments available to keep your skin looking and feeling young and healthy. As a beauty therapist, there are several skin treatments that you will be able to train in, including facial treatments and massage, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser hair removal. The latter three will take more training and work experience to master but are definitely worth considering for your career in beauty.
These are just three of the most popular beauty treatments and therapies available today, which anybody hoping for a career in beauty should certainly consider training in.
