Beauty, Hairdressing & Complementary Therapies

Hairdressers and therapists use a range of hair, facial and body techniques to help their clients look and feel better.


There are opportunities to work in salons and beauty clinics, hospitals, leisure clubs, spas, hotels and health farms – as well as overseas in holiday resorts, on cruise ships and for major airlines. There are good prospects for beauty therapists, and they can follow various career paths. They may move into management, or become a trainer or lecturer, make-up artist, promotional therapist, or field sales representative working for a cosmetics or health company.

Beauty therapists can also train as complementary therapists and offer treatments such as reflexology, Indian Head Massage, and stress management. Hairdressers work with clients of all ages providing a range of cutting, styling and colouring services.

Opportunities exist for hairdressers throughout the UK. There are salons in city centres, high streets, shopping centres, department stores, cruise ships, hotels and health clubs; alternatively you can set up your own business or move into management, or become a trainer or lecturer.

"I’ve learnt about many new treatments on this course; manicures are my favourite. I’m going to go on to do a make-up course."
