At Beauty Academy we are delighted to work with external experts who offer insight into their own area of specialism to give greater insight into other avenues & opportunities within the beauty industry. These experts vary from successful make up artists, bloggers and salon owners who specialise in advanced medical skincare

It is vital when you consider your future in the beauty industry to realise your area of passion and specialise in that.  E.g. some therapist will take the holistic route, others prefer to perfect the visual such as brows and others solely concentrate on become the best at waxing.

With this in mind Beauty Adademy has invited in the following Guest Speakers experts of their own fields:

The beauty industry is advancing rapidly with clients now demanding results. The future for the beauty therapists of today is primarily to be familiar and informed about what is available on the market and secondly to decide if this is an area they are passionate about and wish to specialise in.   Beauty Academy students will get a real insight into this area of specialism as Sharon shares her journey to date, her success story and her extensive knowledge in this area. Sharon will also demonstrate the Microneedling Pen called the Innopen (both manual and electrical) which is used to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, open pores and wrinkles.

She thought that out of something bad, must come something new.
called her blog The Beautiful Truth because,  while she loves reading beauty blogs,  she oftened wondered how some bloggers really feel about products they are reviewing. She wanted to give objective and honest feedback and she will always tell you The Beautiful truth.
