Training Courses

Course Information 

Lunatips has its own training academy run by independent trainer Helen Jenkinson. As well as over 8 years industry experience Helen also holds a teaching qualification, which enables her to write and teach her own courses that then are sent to Association of Beauty Therapists (ABT) for accreditation to ensure that her students gain the recognised qualification they deserve. 

Choosing the right training provider is crucial to your learning and Helen has attended many courses of varying standards and levels, at many different sites and venues and she firmly believes that there is no better training than someone who is a full time therapist and salon owner. Helen has taken positive and negative points from all of the courses she has attended into account when writing and delivering her courses so that her students receive the very best quality of training.

Our training academy is the right choice whether you are looking to take up a hobby or to start a new career; Lunatips certainly has a winning style of teaching with many of our students having gone on to run their very own successful mobile businesses.

You can call, email or pop into the salon to book. A deposit is required to hold your place on a course and then you would need to pay the balance 7 days prior to the course start date. Please note all deposits are non-refundable. Once you have booked you will be sent a confirmation email with all of the course information. 

What is included in the course fee? 

Our course fee includes full training, a training manual, use of all of our products on the day, assessment, certification and ongoing support. 

Do I need to purchase a kit? 

Kit purchases are optional, you do not need to have a kit on the day as you will have full use of the salons products, however many students prefer to purchase their own kits, this can be done prior to the course or on the day. Helen will provide full details of kit options for the course that you are attending along with your confirmation email. 

Will I need a model? 

Students are required to work on each other during our courses however, should there not be any other attendees on your course a model will be provided. Should you wish to bring your own model this can be arranged. 

What do I need to wear? 

Salon attire is preferred if this is not possible please wear dark comfortable clothing that you will not mind getting products on. Long hair needs to be tied back and jewellery should be kept to a minimum. 

Do I get a certificate? 

On completion of successful assessment all students are issued with a fully accredited industry recognised certificate that will enable you to obtain insurance that will allow you to gain employment or start your own business in the beauty industry.
