Our previous blog, where we caught up with some CIDESCO graduates proved to be a hit! We have decided to continue to share updates of our alumni across various courses, and hopefully, more people will consider a career in the beauty industry. Especially after so many people contacted us, stating that they’d been interested in studying a beauty course but were unsure what they could do after.
There’s a common misconception that there are only so many career options after completing a beauty qualification, which is not true! A beauty qualification can open you to many new opportunities in the UK or internationally!
What are you doing now as a career? What are your future career ambitions?
Currently, I run an ‘exclusive private in-home salon, specialising in lashes, brows and skin’. Which is a fancy way of saying I work from home. I have been working from there, full-time, since the end of the second lockdown in April 2021.
As far as future plans? I have so many, but my main aim is to be regarded as an expert in my field so that I can assist others in their learning journey.
How did you find your course? What were your best bits?
Great but super fast. I enjoyed the variety of topics covered from manicures and pedicures to electrotherapy devices. It was also really valuable to finally put everything we had learnt into practice at the end, in the schools’ in-house salon, despite the pandemic doing its best to interrupt this.
What were your course tutors like?
Fantastic. Always helpful and easy to get on with.
What is your favourite part of your current job?
Meeting so many amazing people, my clients are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I love that I can improve their lives by taking a daily job away from them (brow & lashes specifically).
Would you recommend The London School of Beauty & Make-Up to someone interested in studying beauty therapy?
What would your advice be to someone looking at starting a career/course in beauty therapy?
You should be prepared for the amount of headspace it will take, but the reward is so worth it. Beats a desk job any day, for me at least.
If you’re interested in keeping up with Caroline’s work as a beauty therapist, then follow her on Instagram! She really is amazing at brows and lashes! @neikidbeauty
