One does not enrol for a full-time, bona fide, professional beauty therapy course as a hobby, a pastime, or a means to gather sundry information and a lot of skill in the beauty industry’s mysteries. Consequently, it is important to have a reasonable understanding of the passion, interest, commitment, and drive that one requires to succeed in a rapidly growing field – beauty therapy.
Modern beauty therapy is a profession, not just a job, but a career, backed by in-depth education and training at a recognised, accredited school of beauty, plus one or more widely accepted, formal qualifications, without which, your chances of obtaining good employment and succeeding in this fast-growing and rapidly advancing professional industry.
It is interesting to note that even in taxing economic times, the beauty industry overall has been growing, which is a significant example of how much demand there is, and continues to be for professional beauty services. This demand also extends to the techniques and technology that has become an integral part and parcel of sought-after, modern beauty service industries, and the specialised skills of the professional therapists who apply them.
If you are serious about becoming a professional beauty therapist, selecting a professional beauty school that has built up a sterling reputation for its curricula and top standards of education and training is the clear, obvious, and only choice. This begs the question – which school might this be?
Face to Face Beauty & Make-Up Design School, located in the lovely, leafy Johannesburg suburb of Parktown, is the preferred choice of many South African beauty specialists. Face to Face was founded back in 1965 by Mrs Rhona Greaves, a lady who was passionate about beauty, the industry, and the quality of beauty industry education and training in this country.
Moreover, Face to Face Beauty and Make-Up Design School is the longest established beauty, make-up, design, and special effects academy in South Africa.
The proud reputation, which our academy has attained, continues today through the ongoing expert management and dedication of Mrs Greaves’ descendants, members of the same family, who continue her work and her legacy unabated to the advantage of all the beauty therapy professionals who qualify at our academy.
Our beauty therapy course qualifications are accredited with CIDESCO, ITEC, and City & Guilds internationally, and Services Seta nationally, which is aligned and registered with SAQA. Respectively, possession of our reputable, recognised qualifications enables our graduates to obtain employment opportunities within South Africa and anywhere abroad, which is the dream of many beauty practitioners.
The entire, most comprehensive beauty therapy course on offer at Face to Face spans three years of full-time study, which is divided into three separate one-year segments or courses.
Completion of, and qualification in, all three years of study opens a lot of professional doors for graduates. Exams are written after each one of the courses, ensuring that students who graduate from each may continue their studies later, if for some reason, their full three-year study programme is interrupted. However, the ideal is that students complete all three beauty therapy courses in three consecutive years at our academy.
