I DONT KNOW A LOT BUT I IMAGINE YOU COULD ONLY PROVIDE THAT SERVICE - FACE AND EYE. YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO BE LICENSED WITH YOUR LOCAL COUNCIL AND OF COURSE INSURANCE COVER - PUBLIC LIABILITY, PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY ETC SUGGEST YOU GO BACK TO YOUR TRAINING CENTRE AND ASK THEM TO GIVE YOU FURTHER HELP WITH STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS. I HOPE OTHERS ARE ABLE TO HELP YOU MORE. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR NEW VENTURE

Hi, best wishes for your future career. i think you need to gain a Level 3 to be able to get professional indemnity insurance etc. I think level 2 allows to work supervised i.e. you can work for a beauty business but cannot operate on your own in your own buiness. i may be wrong on this so lets hope you get other comments

Thank you Both Ms. Aku and Ms. Jane, Sorry for the delayed response. I did my ground work for opening a salon. Opening a salon do not require any qualification but the therapist working there needs proper qualification, insurance and public liability. Of course a salon owner has to go under certain legal process,(This requirement varies council to council) A salon owner should have skilled therapist with L3 for conducting facial electrical treatment, tanning, IPL, etc. I did my ITEC L2 and completed 3 units that covers salons health and safety , client communication and working in beauty industry. I feel completing Salon management course is an added advantage that helps to run a successful business. Thanks once again. I apreciate your valuable responses.
