The sector boasts a workforce of over 245,000 people working across 55,000 businesses comprising of hair, beauty and nail salons, barbers, and spas.’

Job opportunities are endless.   Many students who become newly qualified start their career working in Hotel Spa’s, Salons or Health and Wellbeing Farms to gain experience working with clients.

If you have family commitments for instance you can become a freelance Beauty Consultant and choose the hours you work, perhaps working from. home or going mobile.
