Course overview: The course teaches everything you need to know about carrying out a professional waxing service on different areas of the body including the legs, bikini line, underarms and face. Waxing is one of the most popular salon treatments for which clients return every four to six weeks, which is an excellent regular income. This course is ideal for complete beginners to waxing and without any previous qualifications.
We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results, that will build your client list and your business. Prior to this course it is important that you or your model allow hair to grow over the areas that we will be working. We will need a minimum of 5-10mm of hair growth to allow us to work and achieve good results, so please allow adequate time for this as of course hair growth is a personal process.

Starter Kit: We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes; they are not brand specific. In some cases, your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand. This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.
We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training
