The Advantages of Trade Shows

There are lots of Beauty Trade Shows held each year in the UK. These are mostly held in Birmingham, London and Manchester throughout the year. This is ideal for our students who train at our 3 largest training centres.

Trade Shows are a great way to research new products and treatments that you may look to add to your repertoire either working from home or in the salon. They are also fantastic for purchasing kit items required to practice your treatments and/or complete your course at wholesale or discounted prices.

There are also great to help you keep up to date with the latest trends and gain ideas on what you might like to learn next, to capitalise on the next big trends.

Many of the Trade Shows feature industry leading experts in Facial Skincare, Electrical Facial Machines & Massage therapies. These allow you to see demonstrations of treatments and equipment as new advancements come through to this lucrative market.

Our tutors enjoy attending these shows regularly to keep current.

Big trends this year include the growth in popularity of nail extensions, eyelash extensions and the application of gel polish. Leading brands offering products to deliver these treatments are often in attendance.

One Trade Show we would recommend is Olympia Beauty in London which is running from 4-5 October 2015. More details can be found here:

After visiting, you may wish to learn some new skills to make use of your new purchases. The advantage of our intensive courses are that they require only day out from the Salon and are generic to allow you to go on to use the brand of your choice.

Links to details of some of the most popular courses at the moment can be found below. These treatments are currently the most demanded in Salons and of mobile Therapists.

    Brilliant course. Tutor Leanne was so helpful and friendly and made me feel totally at ease. I was nervous as I have never done any beauty training before and she put me at ease straight away. Brilliant service and I will one hundred percent be using again. Thank you very much!!

    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 made a last minute decision to attend the ‘dry manicure and gel polish’ course and so glad I did! The tutor (Donnamarie) was so passionate and inspiring that she gave me the confidence I needed. Everything was well explained and the group was small enough get the best out of the day.
