Wisely, you have decided to enrol for a beautician courses at a college which offers tuition in this field, because you realise that your career prospects will be extremely limited without qualifications, even though you have a passion and natural talent for all things related to beauty.
You’re quite correct. It is essential that you undertake formal courses if you wish to practice as a professional beautician, because you truly won’t get far in today’s highly competitive business and beauty world without an appropriate, widely recognised qualification.
What is the Role of a Beautician?
A professional beautician is someone who has made a career of providing their clients with beauty treatments, consisting of certain specialised disciplines or practices only, or a whole host of treatments, possibly including hair colouring, cutting and styling, nails – manicures and pedicures, massages, make-up, skin and body care treatments, reflexology, aromatherapy, slimming and body toning treatments.
Not All Equal

To avoid such a money and time-wasting situation, there are two main factors to take into account – the credibility of the college at which you study and likewise, the credibility of the qualifications which they issue.
