A beauty therapist is someone who provides their client with facial and body care, often for cosmetic purposes. They provide a wide variety of beauty treatments for their clients, such as aromatherapy, hair reduction, makeovers, and can also give them skincare recommendations. Sometimes, you might have to sell cosmetic products to the people you treat as well for aftercare purposes.
This career pathway is not only for those passionate about beauty but also for people who want a bit more flexibility in their career. However, there are limits present, as the working hours need to be tailored to when clients are available. This can mean working outside of the traditional nine-to-five structure, especially if you become a salon manager.
