Salary Survey For Beauty Therapists in London 2021
2021 has been a year when beauty therapists are in big demand (yet again).
Why is this?
This is because beauty salon clients want to look and feel good.
Even when lockdown was with us, this was still important priority for many of the UK population, but salons were shut for a period of time, fuelling demand.
Post lockdown, people can decide what to do with their time and money, without any restrictions. It’s been shown they are continuing to invest in beauty treatments.
Salons everywhere, especially in London have seen demand soar to unprecedented levels in 2021 as looking good and feeling beautiful, becomes even more important to people after the sacrifices of lockdowns.
With the travel industry opening up again, many beauty salon clients are now planning their treatments for the Christmas holidays.
Some well organised clients are already considering what beauty treatments will be required for the Summer holidays and salons are preparing their staff requirements accordingly for this busy time.
As a qualified beauty therapist, NVQ 3 or higher and some postgraduate experience spent in a busy beauty salon, you are in a strong position to land your dream beauty job.
