Our Waxing Course is designed for those looking to learn how to safely and successfully carry out a variety of waxing treatments, and offer these services to clients from home and/or mobile. You will be taught to carry out a range of the most popular waxing treatments, as well as learning the theoretical knowledge and safety procedures involved in practicing these treatments to an industry-standard. You will also be required to work on each other on the day, so as much sufficient hair growth as possible will be required.
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.
We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.

Waxing treatments are sought after all year round to achieve smooth, hair-free skin, with clients returning every 4-6 weeks; offering this treatment 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 upper lip, chin, legs, basic bikini line and underarms, using a variety of methods. 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.
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 yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.
Please note you will be required to give and receive treatments as part of the course and therefore will need to ensure you allow hair (re)growth in the areas to be covered on the training day. This must be a minimum of 0.5cm to ensure all students have the best possible opportunity to practice their skills. Students work upon each other so no models are required for the training day.All products and tools are provided for the training days at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training days, nor included in the course fee.
On the training days, you only need to bring a hand and bath towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided.
