If you are an aspiring beautician, you might be wondering which skill sets you should complete to start a successful salon. There really is an endless list of beauty treatments on the market, but not all of them are popular enough to ensure your salon is a thriving success.
So, we have rounded up five beauty courses you won’t regret investing in.
There’s no doubt that lash extensions are the reigning beauty treatment on social media. False lashes can define eyes and make them seem larger naturally, without the need for frequent mascara applications. Because a professional set of lashes can last between six to eight weeks, lash extensions are considered a worthwhile investment for women around the globe.
Professional lash courses in Edmonton will take about two days to complete, and you can expect to learn several essential techniques like retention, taping, isolation, and priming methods.
Waxing, plucking, threading, pulse light, and laser are all trending methods of hair removal. Each method offers different pros and cons, so it’s wise to offer your clients more than one option. After all, hair removal is one of the most common reasons people step into beauty salons.
That said, laser hair removal courses take three to four days to complete, while waxing courses typically take about sixty hours.
Microneedling, chemical peels, botox, light therapy, filler, injectables, and laser facial treatments account for a large number of sales in the beauty industry. These treatments aim to improve the appearance and health of the skin, making them incredibly popular among aging individuals.
A microneedling course should take around four hours to complete, while botox and filler courses can take a day or two. Course times will vary depending on the particular treatment, but it’s essential to add a few of these treatments to your service listings.
Semi-permanent and Permanent Makeup
From microblading brows to defining lip lines and concealing facial scars and dark marks, semi-permanent and permanent makeup procedures are increasingly popular. New trends are also constantly emerging, like permanent freckles, permanent concealer, and even permanent contour treatments, making waves on social media.
While a permanent makeup course will take about a hundred hours to complete, countless people around the world opt for at least one permanent makeup procedure per year.
Dermaplaning is a trending skincare treatment that involves gently scraping the top layer of dead skin cells off with a surgical scalpel. While this treatment has become viral as a DIY treat, it’s quite a risky task to use a surgical scalpel correctly without inflicting injury. As a result, this treatment is increasingly popular at beauty salons.
Opting for a Dermaplaning course will amplify your skillset as a beautician and amplify profits for your practice. A Dermaplaning course that includes theoretical and practical work will only take about half a day to a full day to complete, so it’s worthwhile to consider adding this treatment to your list of services.
