Waxing is an advanced beauty therapy skill which is in demand in today's beauty salons and is a specialised skillset to promote your salon career.

Beauty salons not only need to provide their clients with advanced waxing treatments, they have also opened their doors to men and are offering them specialised treatments too.

While experience & further training is a must before you can perform the advanced wax treatments, this waxing course will give you both the skills and a recognised certification upon which to build a career as a skilled wax therapist.
