Beauty therapists specialise in beauty treatments for the face and body, which can range from massages and facials to hair removal and nail treatments. Beauty therapists play a very important role in helping their clients feel less stressed and more confident about themselves, while also helping them make the most of their physical appearance.
To ensure you gain all the skills needed for a career as a beauty therapist, you will need to start your studies at Level 2. On successful completion you can go into employment or continue your studies at Level 3.
If you wish to gain a general beauty therapy diploma which could lead to careers as a nail technician, beauty therapist, make-up artist or spa therapist then this course is ideal for you. You will build on the techniques already developed at Level 2
and increase your knowledge and experience.
