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 onsite.

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, across all ages  and genders.

Not only are you focusing on making the hands and nails look amazing, but also supporting the nail and skin condition and health.

A relaxing hand massage can make all the difference during a nail treatment, you will learn a series of massage techniques to build a massage routine. This can help with circulation, dry skin and aching joints, not to mention helping your client to unwind.

This treatment is a fundamental service to add to your portfolio and the foundation to build upon with more nail services, such as gel polish or nail extensions. Pedicures are also a great partner  treatment to a manicure, as many clients choose to have a manicure and pedicure during one visit. Take a look at our package deals if you are considering booking more than one treatment.

Manicures are a maintenance treatment that clients will return monthly or more often and they will become regular clients, this helps to maintain a regular income. There’s minimal initial outlay for start-up costs to  start offering treatments.
