The Lowdown on Offering Waxing Treatments

  • Waxing has been a staple beauty treatment for decades and is popular with clients of all ages
  • Whether it’s a simple brow maintenance treatment or a complete body hair removal treatment, clients usually need to return every 3-6 weeks to maintain the results and so it’s a great way of building a regular client base

The Lowdown on Offering Make Up Treatments

  • With make up trends coming through all the time and more clients seeking professional guidance on achieving a celebrity inspired look, there has been a huge surge in the number of clients seeking professional make up application treatments whether that’s for a Wedding, Prom, Black Tie event, big night out or just a make up lesson to make looking their best each day that little bit easier.
  • Make Up treatments can typically earn you up to £35-£50 per treatment, with Bridal treatments often commanding greater service prices. More clients than ever are excited to receive Make Up treatments to get that pampered look and feel right before a big event. It’s also a great add-on service to offer to regular clients with application taking around only 30-45 minutes so perfect for adding to the end of a quiet salon day or between larger treatment appointment slots.
  • You don’t need a huge amount of products to get started – many people wrongly assume you need a huge and vastly expensive kit to get started. Realistically you can begin providing treatments with only a small range of products (perhaps 3-5 foundations to mix the perfect shade, concealer/corrector, contouring products, a good eyeshadow & brow palette, mascara and liner and a small selection of lip products). A good set of brushes is a must along with suitable disposables like mascara wands for a hygienic service. A basic collection of products and brushes can be established for around £200-£300 and within just 10-12 treatments you can easily have a return on your investment and start earning £££s.
  • Treatments can easily be offered on a mobile basis or within your usual treatment area. A comfy, height adjustable stool and wall mirror could make the perfect make up area if you want to add a luxurious feel to your make up services or you can consider charging a mileage charge if travelling out to the client’s venue. This is quite usual in the industry and ensure you cover your costs in delivering treatments, while still offering maximum convenience to clients e.g. on their wedding day.
  • Our Online Make Up Course is ideal for beginners and will equip you with the know-how to deliver safe and hygienic professional make up treatments. Once you have gained the skills, you can easily begin getting creative to meet the needs of clients and offer something unique. Our course is only £99 and is studied through our Online Student Portal so is ideal for busy existing therapists or those looking to gain new skills to launch their own new business, perhaps around other employment or childcare needs.

  • Established 1990: the Original Private Beauty Training School

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.

    I attended the Spa body massage course which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our tutor Lisa was lovely and made the course very enjoyable and learnt a lot from this 2 day course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanted a career in massage therapy. I will be booking more courses in the future with The Beauty Academy. Thank you!
