About the Programme
Rising disposable income of the rapidly expanding Indian middle class, demand fuelled by increasing stress levels and willingness of people to ‘look and feel good’ are further fueling the growth of the Beauty & Wellness industry. India is currently the 10th fastest growing market globally in Beauty & Wellness sector. The beauty and wellness sector is well established with a lot of people self-employed, owning a salon, running their own freelance business, working overseas or on cruise ships. Recently, holistic therapists (like aromatherapists and reflexologists) have joined the business. A lot of people in the beauty industry specialise in one area, such as hairdressing, manicures or tanning. People who perform a range of different treatments, such as hair removal (depilation), make-up and facial massages are known as beauticians or beauty therapists. With extra training, beauty therapists can become qualified in more complicated techniques like aromatherapy, electrical treatments for skin and hair, and nail extensions.COURSE OUTLINE
