Spray Tanning £80.00 - 1 Day - Model Required

At The Glam Squad we believe that education is the foundation to becoming a professional therapist and building a successful business.

That's why we offer fully accredited spray tan courses, where you will learn more than just how to apply the perfect spray tan. Whether you've been in the beauty industry for years or you are just starting out, a spray tanning qualification will set you on the right path to a successful and profitable business.

Since the increasing popularity of shows like TOWIE, and other entertainment programmes, an all year round tan is a beauty must have - and with the use of an airbrush machine, a perfect, flawless tan can be achieved. Clients are becoming increasingly sun safe, and with spray tanning you will be able to transform them with an all-over golden glow within minutes, without the fear of skin damage. This is an extremely popular treatment, and particularly when hosting spray tan parties, can be very quick and very profitable. 

 We use LA tan, however once qualified you can choose to use your own preferred tan solution. 

Semi-Permanent Cluster Lash Extensions £130.00 - 1 Day

Eyelash extensions have taken the beauty industry by storm - they can transform the eyes by making the eyelashes appear longer and thicker. Cluster lashes are applied in order to lengthen and thicken the natural lashes - emphasising and highlighting the eyes without the need for makeup. 

Once clients have experienced eyelash extensions they will not be able to live without them and will return to you time and time again.

The effect lasts for up to 2 weeks with the client returning for removal after this period. They are designed as a short term treatment for weddings, holidays or any other special occasion.

Our eyelash extension course includes application of cluster lash extensions, removal and provides you with a comprehensive knowledge of the health and safety factors surrounding such a treatment.

* Please note you will be working on a professional mannequin head, this is due to health and safety reasons.
During the course you may give and receive certain aspects of the treatment (e.g. taping down the lower lashes). It is essential that any lash extensions/strip lashes are removed prior to the training day.

Semi-Permanent Individual Lash Extensions £160.00 - 1 Day

Eyelash extensions have taken the beauty industry by storm - they can transform the eyes by making the eyelashes appear longer and thicker. 

Individual lashes are applied which lengthen and thicken the natural lashes, creating a natural look that emphasises the eyes. 

The effect lasts for 8-12 weeks with the client returning on a fortnightly basis for maintenance (infilling any gaps in the original set of lashes). 

This is a very profitable treatment, with the average price of  £50-£75 per set - 4 sets and you have earned your course fee back and more! Our eyelash extension course includes application of the individual lashes, the maintenance procedure and how to remove the individual lashes.

Indian Head Massage £130.00 - 1 Day - Model Required

What is Indian Head Massage?

The Indian Head Massage, also known as Champissage, is a therapeutic massage technique that focuses on a patient's head, face, neck, upper-arms, and shoulders. During an Indian Head Massage, you will use a series of gentle massage strokes to ease both mental and physical stress and tension in your clients by stimulating nerves, loosening muscles, and relaxing tissues. 

It is an extremely effective therapy that has evolved from traditional techniques practiced in India as part of family rituals for over a thousand years.

An Indian Head Massage will relieve tension, pains, and headaches, and help calm the mind. It can also increase circulation to the brain, aid relaxation, and improve hair and scalp conditions. 

It is therefore highly beneficial to patients with stress and tension-related disorders - including anxiety, depression and migraines. The facial massage aspect is also great for relieving the symptoms of hayfever and sinus pain. 

This massage is designed for the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp and finishing with the face whilst the client remains seated in an upright position. Indian head massage is one our most popular courses, and is becoming increasingly popular due to the increase in stressors experienced in everyday life, with people craving some "me time" and a chance to unwind.

The Course Content Includes:

History and benefits of Indian Head Massage

Anatomy and Physiology

Contra-indications and health and safety

Physical effects of the treatment

Massage mediums (oil types, healing properties etc)

Massage movements on the shoulders, neck, face, scalp and arms
