Waxing Diploma Course Overview

Our course is open to beginners and existing therapists.

Waxing is one of the most popular and profitable salon treatments, as it provides a quick and efficient way of clearing small and large areas of unwanted hair. Considered a key skill for therapists, these treatments provide a fantastic regular repeat income with an average client requiring the treatment every 3 to 6 weeks.

There are a number of benefits, including the fact that new hair growth in waxed areas is soft and fine, and not sharp and coarse like the regrowth from shaved hair. In addition, repeated waxing makes hair regrowth less common and eventually some hair never regrows.

We offer a comprehensive training course over two days in which you will learn how to successfully wax hair from the following areas: legs (full and half), underarms, bikini (standard) and bikini (high leg), facial areas such as eyebrow, lip and chin using both warm and hot wax methods.
