Start your career in beauty....where to start? | flirties

Start your career in beauty....where to start?

You have taken the first step in finding your true passion. 
You love beauty 
You have decided this is what you want to do 

You want to make the start and create your very own beauty business. 

So, where do you start?

If you look in the internet you will find endless courses, training classes and online tutoring ....but which one is best for you? 

Obviously you want to make sure you get the best training to help you off to a good start but with such an overwhelming choice it is hard to know what would suit you best! 

 

Traditionally college courses would be the best recommendation but over the years sadly a lot of the courses have not been kept up to date and the methods and techniques taught are quite dated. You are also in a class room with many other students which can be difficult if you really want to get stuck in and learn something. 

Look for independent trainers who have got a good reputation. Short classes or one day courses dont have to be bad as long as the content is good. More importantly look for aftercare. 

When you are learning something new it isn't always the initial day that is important but how well the tutor looks after you as you start doing the treatments on your own. 

* Do you get feedback
* Can you contact your trainer for support?
* Is there a group to help each other
* Does the trainer work with a brand who will back you up and help?
* What other advantages do you get? ie loyalty offers, VIP scheme etc

All these things will help you get a better feel for the trainer you are choosing. Keep your ears and eyes open and see if the trainer gets good feedback from those who have trained in the past!

There is lots of things you can do to see if a course is for you, and dont despair if your friends recommend something different......You need to do what is good for you and your new venture!
