Beauty Therapy: A Recession-Proof Career with Many Faces

Beauty TherapyDo you spend your free time learning all the hottest makeup trends, tricks and techniques, or are you the go-to friend your squad runs to for the perfect brows, nails, or skin regimen tips? If this sounds like you, the beauty industry has many lucrative local and international opportunities just waiting for someone like you.

Over the past year, the pandemic has thrown every industry a curve-ball, but the beauty industry carried itself well. Today, visiting a massage therapist or a cosmetic laser surgeon is like an hour of stress therapy, so no matter the economy or the cost, consumers continue to splash out on pricey treatments and therapies to feel healthier, youthful, and less stressed. As a result, makeup artists, hairdressers, massage therapists, and nail technologists are going mobile.

A Full Diploma Expands Your Opportunities

Working in beauty and wellness is an exciting and rewarding career path, but the first step is to enrol in a two-year beauty therapy course. You may think…why not enrol in a short class in makeup or massage? The beauty therapy industry has many faces, and a long diploma trains you for a job in a growing industry. For instance, you may intend to become a mobile makeup artist, but later find that you’re more passionate about beauty treatments and laser surgery.

From Massage, Makeup, Hair, and Nails to Laser

A comprehensive diploma in beauty therapy expands your opportunities, with no limitations to one area. It covers all the primary massage treatments, lymph drainage, hydrotherapy, reflexology, aromatherapy, electrical epilation, and body exfoliation and wraps. It also includes makeup artistry, manicures, pedicures, hair removal, hairdressing, waxing techniques, entrepreneurship, and nutrition and diet.

Many beauty schools in South Africa provide short and long beauty therapy courses. Finding them is easy. The hard part is finding a school that offers a solid education, internships, and future work, such as Face to Face Makeup & Beauty Design School.
