Kid's fashion blogs

My little guy is only 5, but he's already super fussy about he wants to wear. He wants to look like a 'cool dude'. It's so cute how much effort he puts into his outfits, so I love taking photos to share them online. This blog has some of his photos, but it also includes some other blogs and fashion labels that we find super cool. I have also decided to include some tips for parent photographers on how to take good photos of kids as well. It should be useful for other new bloggers still working out how to make images of kids' fashion look great.

The Skills You'll Need To Be A Great Beauty Therapist!

If you're considering pursuing a career as a beautician, you'll need to know if you have the right skills for success before you sign up for a beauty therapy course. Read on to find out if you've got what it takes!

Training and qualifications

Before you can begin working in the beauty industry, you'll need to acquire recognised qualifications to demonstrate to your clients that you have been trained appropriately. There are many different areas of beauty therapy to learn including:

  • skin care
  • manicures
  • pedicures
  • cosmetic skin procedures, for example administering Botox injections
  • hair care
  • piercing
  • aromatherapy
  • waxing
  • make-up

Although a good beauty therapy course will provide you with an overall taste of these areas, you may choose to specialise in one particular skill, and this will mean that you'll need to undertake more training in order to qualify. If you are planning on running your own salon or working as a freelancer, you'll also need to take a basic business studies course so that you have an understanding of accounting, data management and record-keeping.

You'll need to be prepared to attend regular refresher training courses throughout your career to keep you up to speed with industry developments.

Personal qualities

In addition to the technical skills that you will need to master, there are a number of personal qualities that are very important if you are to succeed as a beautician. 

It's important that you have an outgoing personality and that you enjoy chatting with people from many different walks of life. Discretion and the ability to keep secrets are very important attributes, as you could find that some of your clients may divulge highly personal information to you. Conversely, some people prefer to just enjoy their treatment in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere without the distraction of chatter so you must also be able to work unobtrusively and quietly when required.

Some of the procedures you will be asked to carry out require that you are in close contact with more intimate areas of a stranger's body--for example bikini line waxing, so you mustn't be squeamish! Many of the procedures you'll carry out entail delicate work and fine detail, so you'll need a steady hand and a creative flair, especially if you choose to specialise in make-up.

You'll need to be observant and have a basic understanding of dermatology, as well as knowing how different chemicals that you may be using react with certain skin conditions. 

In conclusion

Working as a beautician can be a very rewarding career, but it requires a certain set of personal qualities, as well as the skills that you will learn on your beauty therapy course. If you think you have what it takes, contact your local course provider and take the first step to success!
