A rewarding specialist career is waiting for you
The words “beauty salon” bring up a particular image to come people – women sitting around gossiping and being pampered. And while historically, beauty salons have been an iconic symbol of women’s leisure time, today they are so much more.
Beauty salons offer an extensive range of treatments that women 50 years ago could never have dreamed of. Trained professional therapists don’t just pamper their customers, but treat different skin issues, enhance their looks, teach and apply make-up, create artistic-looking nails, style their hair, and offer massage treatments. The beauty salon of today is so much more than the salons of yesteryear.
