Required Qualifications

Most technicians will work their way up through the industry from receptionist in a beauty salon to the role of nail technician. To specialise in any of the treatments such as nail art or false nail application individuals will need NVQ Level 2/3. Courses to take this qualification can be taken nationwide.

Beauty therapists can also take a BTEC National Diploma or ITEC Level 3 to reach the same standard of qualification as the more common NVQ/SVQ.

Once they have their certificate they will shadow someone more senior to learn from them.
