Kelly Ann’s Beauty Southampton is a Guild member working in conjunction with GTI (Guild Training International)

Guild Training International is the training arm of the guild of beauty therapists. All courses are accredited and certified to enable you to gain liability insurance which can also be obtained through The Guild.

I genuinely believe as a trainer I have a responsibility for my students and to the reputation of the beauty industry overall.

You will be trained to the highest standard and will have on-going support until you have the knowledge and confidence to go it alone. Your training with Kelly Ann’s Beauty will be completed once you have completed the following:

  • The Theory
  • The practical day

Waxing is an excellent addition to any treatment menu and provides repeat business as it is an essential maintenance option for many clients. The GTi Waxing Course meets the Habia National Occupational Standards and covers the various types of hair removal, anatomy and physiology, skin disorders and diseases, contra-actions and contra-indications, reception, consultation, ventilation, technique, and aftercare.

This course covers the technique for performing warm waxing on a number of different areas including the legs, bikini line, arms and face. Contra-indications are detailed as well as the correct way to carry out a thorough consultation. It also includes a practical training day.

The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images, video and a voice-over. Upon completion of the online theory, students will receive a manual which they can use to refer back to. Twelve of the modules and examinations are completed online with full online support available. The remaining module consists of a practical day and examination which is to be completed at Kelly Ann’s Beauty.  On completion of the course, successful students will receive a GTi certificate in Waxing.

Once this has been completed and you have received your Waxing certificate but still feel you would like to come into the salon to watch us at work with our existing clients and ask questions I would encourage for you to do so. I will be more than happy to give you this extra time and support. I am fortunate enough to do what I love for a living and hope I can pass this passion on to my students. I believe in an open-door policy and even if after your course you still feel like you need some encouragement and guidance you are more than welcome to come back.

GTi online examinations and one day of practical assessment Certificates will be issued from The Guild of Beauty Therapists once success has been logged by Kelly Ann’s Beauty.
