Important information when attending this course

Our beauty courses offer the opportunity to train in the technical aspects of application of the materials required for your chosen course, without losing valuable practical time trying to sell you products.

We show you how to effectively use the product to achieve fantastic results that will build your client list and your business.

Prior to this course it is important that you allow your hair over the areas that we will be working to grow, we will need a minimum of 5-10mm of hair growth to allow us to work and achieve good results, so please allow adequate time for this as of course hair growth is a personal process.



Products Used

Our certification is not brand specific. In some cases your insurance may be invalid if you train with a branded product detailed on your training certificate and you then change to another brand.

This also allows us to offer our training courses at a lower cost allowing you to spend what is right for you on the necessary products rather than buying unnecessary and costly equipment.


Some of the beauty courses have kits available to buy on the day enabling you to continue to build your confidence and skills immediately upon your return home.

Your tutor will advise you if a kit is available for your course, when confirming your booking. Some kits may require payment in advance and others may be available for purchase on the training day.

When you book with us you have peace of mind we have a proven track record - established in 1998 and accredited by the top professional bodies.


Certificate - Insurance - Brands

Why is our course so popular?

This is because the certification we give you allows a student to work with which ever particular brand they choose to purchase later and use with their clients.


Importantly as we teach effective and safe methods with products our tutors love to use but do not insist on the students who attend to have to continue with any one given brand afterwards to gain insurance and use what they have learned with us professionally.

This then allows students to make their own choice of brand and also means that they are not tied by any particular brand when it comes to their insurance, so should they ever have a problem and if a claim is made and they have changed brand, they would still be covered (please check this with your insurance provider) giving you a lot more flexibility.

This also means you are not tied into buying brands from us which is very restrictive which only makes the school you are buying them from money but does not benefit you. This means the certificate you gain with us gives you the freedom to use what ever brand you wish, the tutors can guide you to good products but ultimately it is your choice!

Feedback:

I had an amazing teacher, she was confident, friendly and makes you feel extremely comfortable. She is very welcoming and you feel settled the minuet you walk through the door. I have done 3 courses now and every time I feel very confident within my self as I feel I have learnt everything I possibly can to my best ability and that is thanks to her teacher skills and knowledge.

The hot waxing course was better than I expected, I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn and widen their skills. Not only did I understand the course but the techniques you learn and pick up, will help you to grow and move forward in business. The manuals given are fantastic and easy to refer back to. Don't pay silly money and get ripped off from another company, gateway will give you everything and more, I can not stress this enough.

They are a very good price and the way the website is worded makes you instantly feel as though you can trust what they are saying. And you can!
