…that I am actually done now and have completed my level 2! A nice 6 weeks early so an extended summer break for me to spend with the littley.
I was a little gutted that I actually only got a merit for my waxing (1 point off the distinction) because I did not take note of “hair type” nor tell my clients what exfoliater and moisturiser to use and how to use them? The reason I am gutted is because I am nothing but thorough in my consultations and aftercare and I genuinely was NEVER told we needed to do this.
I told my clients to exfoliate and moisturise regularly (twice a week preferable) so as to keep the skin soft and to prevent ingrown hairs. I also told them not to exfoliate or moisturise for at least 24 hours after the treatment to avoid skin irritation. Had I known I needed to say “when you exfoliate please use XYZ product, apply it in a scrubbing motion and use it in the bath or shower to rinse off” etc then I would have.
In fact, when I mentioned to other girls in the class that I had got a merit and this was why they all looked slightly confused and said agreed that they never knew this was something we had to say.
Still I guess I shouldn’t complain. I have done better than most, distinctions in everything with waxing being the only exception.
The next stage is waiting for a letter to tell me I have been invited back for an interview to apply for my level 3. This is likely not to be until July or August as I think they wait until they have actually sent us our certificates for the level 2.
In the mean time I am still looking for some beauty related job that has more hours than my current job in order to help me fund more bits for my home salon – yippee!
