Beauty Therapy Success Stories: Caren

Caren - Beauty Therapy

Why did you choose The Training Room’s beauty therapy course?

Ever since I left school, I knew I wanted to work in the beauty industry. I saw an advert for The Training Room’s beauty course and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I was also interested in The Training Room as they provide funding options as I wasn’t able to pay upfront for my course.

What did you enjoy most about the course?

I really enjoyed the course, particularly the practical parts – it was great to practice all the treatments as it’s really prepared me for my new career. My tutors were great too, there was a lot to learn in 3 months but they made it manageable.

How did you manage to fit the course around your personal life? 

I took the 2-day course which let me study around family life. If I didn’t have this flexible option, I wouldn’t have been able to pursue my dream career.

Were there any challenges you faced on the course?

When I was on the course I was pregnant, this made treatments like pedicures a little uncomfortable for me to perform. I also struggled a bit to help out my classmates but everyone was really understanding and my tutor was very accommodating.

What did your career look like before your beauty course?

I worked full-time doing shift work as an Aircraft Dispatcher at Gatwick Airport. It was an interesting job but I had to work outside, in all weather conditions – not great when it’s cold and wet!

What are you doing now you’re a qualified beauty therapist?

I am running my own little salon in a hairdresser’s; it’s called Caren @ Elements Holistic and Beauty on the Isle of Wight. I am really enjoying running my own salon - it’s also nice working in a warm and dry salon!

I’ve already got a good stream of enquiries coming in and am really excited to what the future holds.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking a career in beauty therapy?

If you’re committed to becoming a beauty therapist I would definitely recommend The Training Room!
