We all desire to have that perfect look, but often lack the discipline needed to achieve it. When a

person comes into a salon, it is because they are looking for a professional person to change

something or add something that will give them the look that they desire.  

When working in a Beauty Salon the Beauty Therapist must, therefore, understand each person's need

and not only be able to give the right information but also carry out the correct treatment to a high

professional standard.  

We expect our students to attain high standards and have included a list that we feel a Beauty

Therapist requires:

Ability to advise clients have a good personality and work well in a team:

All therapists must learn how to sharpen their listening skills so that they will give the client what has

been asked for. Before we can advise we must listen and understand what the client is saying and

exactly what it is they are asking.

Many times the client is saying one thing whilst we are thinking another. Therapists must have a calm

an attentive listener to understand what the client's needs are and to give the best possible advice and

treatment. caring approachable, friendly and a good listener. You must look the image you want to

portray Be smartly turned out with excellent personal hygiene, as you will in most cases be working in

close proximity to your client and a team of other therapists.  teamwork is of vital importance for the

smooth working flowing salon. If there is friction or a lack of genuine politeness between therapists

then this environment will be easily felt by the clients and it will chase them away. 

Therapists must learn to be respectful of the need for confidentiality and be tactful in all situations.  A

A therapist will take personal information about their clients, therefore, it is important that therapists

understand the need for confidentiality and the Data Protection Act.  All therapists will learn about the

Health and Safety at work Act 1974 which is standard teaching in the majority of courses.  It is

essential that all therapist has a great understanding of the requirement of health and safety issues

such as Risk Assessments, Fire prevention, Health and Hygiene, First Aid, RIDDOR, COSHH etc.

Understanding the need to use an appointment system effectively when scheduling appointments is a

skill that can be developed through practice. looking for appointments, time management, and manage

schedules is a very important skill in the beauty industry, one of the qualities an employer looks for in

a therapist. Perform a number of treatments professionally Greeting Clients discussing their needs,

analyzing their skin and giving professional advice on suitable treatments and products available.

These treatments will include Facial Skincare and Eye treatments, Manicures and Pedicures, Hair

removal both Permanent and temporary, Make Up for all occasions and a variety of Holistic Treatments.
