When it comes to learning, there are a lot of things that can make your course successful. You need good course content and the right environment, but one of the most important factors can be the trainer themselves.

Be yourself and know your worth!

Be yourself and know your worth!

It is human nature to compare ourselves to others, it’s part of our natural instinct and evolution to want to be wary of possible competition and to compete against any possible threats according to Darwin’s evolutionary theory.... “survival of the fittest”. 

But we don’t need those primal instincts anymore!

Career-Long Skills

Career-Long Skills

As a beauty therapist it can be difficult to know what training to invest in. Whilst some treatments look to be the height of fashion, they are very often nothing more than fads.

One thing that has always been in demand is facial waxing and tinting. It comes in different forms, from basic maintenance to the latest brow craze, but it is a skill you will always use. 

As this is a versatile treatment, it is important that you invest in professional, accredited training. Flirties offer a fantastic Facial Waxing & Tinting course that provides comprehensive training that allows you to perform a full range of facial waxing treatments and also eyelash and eyebrow tinting. 

Not only are these treatments in daily demand, they can also be very profitable. We teach you how to remove all unwanted facial hair using Flirties hard wax, a flexible non-strip formulation that removes even short and coarse hair gently yet effectively. Our rich, long-lasting tints are perfect for colouring lashes and brows in order to match hair colour or to deepen grey or fair hair. 

The course comes complete with a starter kit so you can leap into your treatments as soon as you are qualified. With courses being run across the UK, there is no better time to invest in a skill that will last your whole career. Find out more on our Training Page or call 0845 022 22 33.

Making Brows Into An Art

Making Brows Into An Art

Everywhere you look, brows are a big topic. Whether it is the new trends of plaited or wobbly brows, the Cara Delevingne full brow, or a pencil thin arch, everyone has a different style.

From young to old, most salon clients are now concerned with how their brows look and are turning to professionals for help. Whilst your skills may be able to make them look just the way they like, they may struggle to recreate the look at home.

The Flirties Brow Palette is the perfect solution as it is not only a great salon tool but also a wonderful retail item. Available in five different shades, the palette includes a highlighter, brow wax and two highly pigmented brow powder colours.

This amazing item helps to get your clients brows looking perfect, wherever they are. Buy yours at www.flirties.co.uk/collections/brows/products/brow-palette.

Does The Customer Always Know Best?

Does The Customer Always Know Best?

We've all heard the old adage about the customer knowing best, but is that really true?

As a professional who has gone through expert Flirties training, you will pretty much know all there is to know about brows, including what is on trend, what shapes can be made and, crucially, what shapes and colours suit each face.

As I walked around my home town today I was struck by the number of girls boasting thick black eyebrows that looked like they had been drawn on with permanent marker. It leads you to wonder whether this is the work of a less than talented therapist or whether that is exactly the look they were going for. So, what do you do when a client requests big black caterpillars adding to their face?

A simple flat refusal is unlikely to do the trick. They have made up their minds and know what they want, digging your heels in is not going to change that. Instead, you have to draw on your training and show them what a knowledgeable professional you are. Show them examples of shapes and colours that would really suit them, and explain how it would benefit their face.

You could also show them your retail items, such as the wonderful Flirties Brow Design Retail Kit, and explain how they can achieve different looks for different occasions. 

When faced with expertise and the understanding of what will make them look best, then it is likely you will change their minds, but still leave them feeling like it was their idea! If they still insist then it is up to you to decide whether you want your business associated with those brows!
