Waxing is one of the most popular treatments in the beauty industry. Research has shown that the desire to become hair free is on the increase due to the sleek bodies portrayed in magazines and films. Courses in waxing teach you how to wax key areas including legs, under arms, bikini area and the face. Most courses will also teach you how to carry out a hot wax. Waxing is an excellent tool for any beautician as customers receiving a positive experience will keep returning every 4-6 weeks for another waxing session. Waxing is one of the highest earning beauty treatments in to-day's beauty industry.
Who is the Waxing course aimed at?

Salons may send staff on a waxing course so they learn new skills and can offer a new service to clients, therefore increasing turnover. Delegates should take a en-thusiastic and motivated approach. You'll also need to be professional and confidentially is of the utmost importance.
