A classic for a reason. The effortless glam of a blow-dry never goes out of style so if there’s one hairstyle to master it’s certainly this. The ability to create bouncy, voluminous hair will make you everyone’s best friend as it really does have the ability to lift an appearance.

Clients will frequently ask their MUA if they can style hair as well, so even if you have no plans to be a hairdresser, being able to offer a blow-dry is a good addition to your overall offering. Plus, it can make you the perfect one-stop-shop for wedding-guest glam.

There are plenty of training courses you can try, but there are also a tonne of great YouTube videos out there on this. So get watching and learn how to create that salon-perfect blow-dry.

Lash Perfect Lash Lift Training

A Lash Lift is the standout treatment currently taking the beauty world by storm thanks to its traffic stopping results. A Lash Lift involves gently realigning natural lashes to either subtly or dramatically enhance the eyes depending on the desired results. The popularity of the treatment just keeps growing and shows no signs of slowing down, so it’s a great string to add to your bow – particularly if you already offer other beauty services.

Gel Nails

Now a long-standing trend and frequently opted for over acrylics, gel nails are a great skill to master and a popular request from clients to their beauticians. Getting creative with gel nails can really help you to stand out, so if you’re looking to grow a client base this could be a great place to start.

There are a number of courses you can do online, but you will need to make sure that the one you select also provides you with the necessary professional kit (unless you have the tools already).

Dermaplaning is the exfoliating treatment that helps smooth fine lines and ensures make up goes on flawlessly. The treatment involves using an exfoliating blade to remove dead layers of skin from your face, as well as getting rid of any surface “peach fuzz”. In doing so, it leaves the skin brighter and rejuvenated. Thanks to the exfoliation, the skin underneath is able to better absorb any products and make up appears to sit more smoothly on the skin which is making it an increasingly popular treatment.

However, do keep in mind that to be an accredited Dermaplaning provider in most cases you will need previous qualifications such a Beauty Therapist level 2, medical qualifications, or trained in Microblading. If you don’t quite fit the bill for this one just yet, microblading is another popular treatment option that’s worth exploring as a great first step before Dermaplaning.
