Waxing Training Course

Course Price: £165.83 + VAT

What this course covers

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • Different types of waxing products
  • Use of hot and warm wax
  • Alternative depilatory products and treatments
  • Procedure for waxing legs, underarms, face and bikini areas
  • Aftercare advice

Course structure

This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start. You will learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch.

Course benefits

Waxing treatments are sought after all year round to achieve smooth, hair-free skin, with clients returning every 4-6 weeks. This will give you a continual source of income (earning up to £50 per hour) particularly during the summer months when waxing treatments are the most in-demand. You will learn to remove hair from the most common and delicate areas, including facial hair, legs and underarms. Wax depilation provides a quick and efficient way of clearing small and large areas of unwanted hair, whilst the use of hot/warm wax, the traditional procedure of hair removal, is similarly as efficient and relatively pain-free for your clients in comparison to other methods. At the end of your course, you will be qualified in providing waxing treatments from home or mobile, once insurance has been obtained. Once you are confident in this method of waxing, you can progress onto our Advanced Intimate Waxing course.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry.

  1. Excellent course

    Posted by on

    I attended the waxing course today with Beverly, she was a great tutor, with tonnes of knowledge and experience. She was super patient and happy to answer the many questions we all had. There were 8 of us on the course, perfect amount of people so you get the different hair types to treat and watch being treated and the tutor could oversee everyone.
    I'm super excited to do my nail course next week!

    Thankyou The Beauty Academy!
