Careers in the beauty industry are extremely popular because they allow you to get paid to do things you love. Whether you become a nail technician, hairdresser, makeup artist, etc – you can spend your days doing something you genuinely enjoy. Plus, there’s a lot of room to freelance in this industry, allowing you to have no ceiling on your earnings. 

If you’re interested in this career path, you’re going to wonder what skills you need to make it. Obviously, specific skills relating to the beauty industry are required. Those of you that are reading this will probably already have training in some service areas – such as hairdressing or nail art. Once you’ve undergone the training to gain these key skills, there are three other elements you should look at to boost your chances of making it:

Social skills

Working in the beauty industry will mean you spend a lot of time talking to people. Clients come to you for services and can be in the chair with you for at least an hour, sometimes more. As such, it’s your job to make the experience as enjoyable as possible – nobody wants to feel bored out of their mind when going for a hair appointment or beauty treatment. 

Therefore, you need excellent social skills to talk to your clients, learn things about them, help them feel comfortable, and so on. If you can’t hold conversations with people, it will be hard for you to retain and gain clients. The most successful individuals in this industry are the ones that can create friendships with clients to establish loyalty. 

First aid skills

Initially, this isn’t something you expect to need for a job in the beauty industry. But, think about it, your job requires you to be in close contact with someone. So, what if something happens to the individual and they need instant assistance? Having the right skills and training in first aid can be the difference between saving someone’s life. 

Thankfully, you have places like MyCPR NOW where you can sign up for courses and get certifications for things like CPR and First Aid training. If you have these skills, you’re instantly more employable. 

Time management skills

The key to having a successful career in the beauty industry is to see as many clients as possible throughout the working week. More clients mean more money; it’s as simple as that. 

Unfortunately, if you don’t have great time management skills, you’ll spend far too long on each client. A one-hour job turns into a two-hour one – which isn’t good for the client’s experience either. Learn to be swift, yet maintain a really high standard. If you nail your time management skills, you can see lots of clients every day, ensuring all of them leave with a smile. 

 

To round things up, here’s a quick recap. Start by developing specific beauty industry skills in a particular service area, so you have an actual service to provide. Then, develop the three skills listed above to take your talents to the next level and make yourself more employable.

3 Top Skincare Tips
  • Don’t use too many products

It is so easy to get carried away with the different types of skincare products on the market. Beauty is a booming business and so there will always be new products promising all sorts but to find out the best skincare products for your skin, it is best to start with as few products as possible. That way it is clear to see the products that work best for your skin and the ones you should avoid. The last thing you would need is to have a bunch of half-used skincare products that have zero benefits.

  • Use the right products for your skin type

Now, this tip is very important but many of us tend to take it for granted. It is super important to check the ingredients of every skincare product before you buy. You need to ensure you are happy with all that the product contains and you also need to make sure the skincare product is right for your skin type. I know I have used many products in the past that were not meant for my skin type. Now, I always ensure I am happy with the ingredients and that it is right for my skin type.

  • Don’t get carried away with beauty trends

This tip kind of follows from the first tip. There will always be new beauty trends so don’t get away with all the new skincare products and their promises. Almost everyone is a beauty expert online, and this is why it is safer to proceed with caution and try as few skincare products as possible at a time. That way you know which is working and which to toss aside.

Now over to you! What are your 3 top skincare tips? What do you look for when shopping for skincare products? Please share your tips and thoughts down below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a good one.
