Now we get to the good part! There are so many options for training in beauty, so it’s important to do your research. Luckily for you, we’re pretty knowledgeable on beauty education. There are three main ways to learn your skills: Beauty School, Online short courses, and in-classroom short courses. Each of these methods differ in their strengths and weaknesses, but we’re going to focus specifically on online courses.
If you want to train towards setting up your own home salon, an online short course is one of the most effective ways to hone your skills. Not only will it teach you the discipline needed to work at home, but it will also help you set up your treatment rooms. Beauty beds, treatment equipment, and handbooks are often necessary to complete your qualifications and can continue to be used as you embark on your career.
You will also need to provide services to volunteers while studying, in order to cater to specific requests and needs and learn how to manage client communication. This is a daunting thing while you’re learning, but most people are quite happy to give up their time for a free beauty treatment, even from a student (cheap haircuts anyone?).
More importantly, if you are passionate and care about your clients, many of them will probably want to continue using your services. It is a great way to build up your client base, even as a student!
Most of all, an online beauty course will help you learn about yourself. What parameters do you need to put in place to be productive? How can you improve? Do you actually enjoy working from home?
