If you are interested in the beauty industry, and you aspire to work within it, you will benefit from studying a beauty therapy course. Not only is studying personally enriching, but it also provides you with a good foundation on which to build your future. As a prospective beauty therapist, you will need to learn how to:

  • Give different types of massages
  • Do manicures and pedicures
  • Provide facial skincare treatments
  • Implement different hair removal techniques
  • Shape and tint eyelashes and eyebrows
  • Apply make-up for various occasions

A course in beauty therapy will help you obtain the skills that are required. You can either choose to study a course that includes all of the above, or you can choose to study shorter courses that focus on specific aspects of beauty therapy.

Beauty therapy holds many career opportunities, such as the following:

  • Opening your own beauty salon (using a combination of business skills and beauty therapy skills).
  • Working as a beauty therapist in hotels and spas (either locally or overseas).
  • Working as a beauty therapist on a cruise ship.
