What is beauty therapy?
Beauty therapy is the treatment of hair, skin and nails to enhance appearances and to repair damage. Beauty therapy treatments sometimes also include massages and other body relaxation exercises. Treatments usually take place in salons, but some beauty therapists also do house calls, work on film sets, or work backstage at live performances.
Why study beauty therapy courses?
