Here at BC Beauty Training, we specialise in one to one training, enabling us to give you our full attention and allowing you to take the course at your pace. We do offer courses to more than one student at a time. If you would like to take a course with a colleague or friend, you would both qualify for a discount of 10% off of your course price. We like to keep our groups small, so as to not dilute the quality of our training. Groups can be up to 4 at one time. If groups are larger, we will have two trainers on site.

We ask that students arrive on time for their course for a prompt start. We start our session with the theory of the treatment and discuss the course manual that you are sent upon time of booking. The remaining time of the course will be spent carrying out the practical aspect of the course and learning the treatment hands on with demonstrations and your trainer guiding you through.

There is some home study to be completed prior to your practical session, this is sent out to you when you book your course.

Manicures are an essential skill for any therapist. Everyone wants to have attractive hands, whether that be day to day or for a special occasion. Manicures are a popular treatment which see bookings all year round but also across all ages.

Gel polish is one of the most popular nail treatments currently available. With results lasting much longer than nail varnish and the overall finish being much more refined, it’s no wonder most clients choose gel every time.

Pedicures are a fabulous addition for therapists. Pedicures are a popular treatments all year round and will see clients return regularly, making it a profitable service to add to your portfolio. You will be offering basic foot care and making the foot look and feel great, focusing on the skin condition and nail care.

Acrylic nail extensions are the most popular nail extension method in the UK. Clients return regularly for maintenance  making it an extremely profitable skill to add to your portfolio.

Acrylic uses a two-component system with liquid and powder. The nail extensions are versatile and can be shaped to your client’s preference. We will teach you the most popular shapes to file such as stiletto, coffin and almond. Extensions can dramatically enhance the look of natural nails.

Gel nail extensions are popular as they are a non-odour system, compared to acrylic. Often referred to as UV gel or hard gel, this system uses a  lamp to cure the product. Gel offers a more flexible nail extension alternative for those not suited to the acrylic method. Gel offers a more natural looking enhancement, making it a popular choice.

There are huge benefits to learning how to use an electric file. Firstly, this will speed up your treatment time, which for a busy nail technician makes it a very popular choice of tool. An e-file will reduce the amount of manual filing required during a nail service. Busy nail technicians that spend a lot of time during each day filing will experience  problems with conditions such as repetitive strain injury, carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis. Using an e-file will help reduce the risk of such complaints, making the job at hand less strenuous.
