The Guild of Beauty Therapists

 

In order to complete the accredited practical element of this course, students will need to become a member of the Beauty Guild and complete the Theory module, upon which you will receive a code (which you will need to provide to ourselves to undertake the practical sessions).

Nail enhancements are an increasingly popular treatment within the professional beauty industry. The last few years have seen the introduction of UV gel systems which can be used to provide natural looking overlays or enhancements.
UV gel nails are perfect for clients who are looking for a longer lasting nail treatment than a manicure as they can last for as long as three weeks. Clients will need to return to the salon to have these removed or infilled, guaranteeing you repeat bookings.
