Beauty students receive training using industry-leading product waxu


On 16th May 2018, Beauty Therapy students attended a product training workshop at our Clarendon campus with waxu – a range of specialist waxing products which is described as the most advanced in the market.

Initial product training and the benefits of the brand were shared by Natasha Jones MBE, from waxu, in preparation for students using waxu in practical sessions from September onwards. Caroline Sheard, Lifestyles Head of Faculty, was delighted with the training and is excited for students to start using the product. She said: “Having the opportunity to use the best products in the marketplace is a great experience for our students as it will help them to become more confident with their techniques which will be a real benefit for their future careers.”

In addition, Beauty Therapy students have the opportunity to undertake an additional training course delivered by waxu, alongside their usual studies. The first course will take place on 30th May 2018, the focus of this training will be female intimate waxing and will allow learners to develop techniques bespoke to the waxu product.

Level 2 Beauty Therapy student, Ellie Taylor, commented on the training: “waxu is a lot easier to work with in comparison to other products. It has a better consistency, which makes me feel more confident when applying waxing treatments. I look forward to working with the product next year.”

The waxu brand has a close connection to Nottingham, as the brand founder Gemma Cafferkey is also the owner of Beautification City Spa and Day Salon in Nottingham.  Also, last year, Gemma braved the BBC’s infamous Dragons’ Den in hope of securing further investment in waxu. Despite opting out of the investment, all five Dragons gave extremely positive feedback about the business and its future.

Over 100 salons now offer waxu treatments, including Katie Price’s new salon. Nottingham College is the first college to incorporate waxu products into the training of the next generation of beauty therapists.
