There is no minimum qualification for entering into the profession, and many young people between 16 and 24 will start out in a particular salon doing an apprenticeship. To find out more about these, it's advisable to go to www.apprenticeships.org.uk. However, if you're looking for a sustainable career in a reputable salon, or hoping to start your own business, you will need to look into getting proper qualifications. If you are looking to be a junior manicurist, you'll need at least the NVQ/SVQ Level 2, and to be a senior or salon manicurist and pedicurist you'll need the NVQ/SVQ Level 3. Many people study in local or private colleges to qualify, including The Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) which offers a Level 2 Certificate, and City and Guilds, VTCT and Edexel which offer Levels 2 and 3. For a more extensive list of approved training centres, contact ANT, the manicurists and pedicurists association, or the Hairdressing and Beauty Industry Authority (HABIA).

Why not start exploring your options today? The sooner you get the qualifications you need, the sooner you'll be able to embark on this exciting and fulfilling career!
