This is a really popular safe course, with plenty of practice. Whether you are a fully trained beauty therapist or a budding beauty therapist with no experience, who would like to be an extra-preneur (someone who tops up their salary) or mum-preneur (great for new and school-age busy Mums, who just would like to earn their own money and have more grown up time).

This does happen. Sienna X is the most switched to brand, according to an independent survey. Sometimes it’s easy to be swayed and think you are saving money.

Hear what one of the many therapists who had to pay twice had to say.

Nicky, from the West Midlands, felt the same, why should she invest again, but she was saying that she lacked confidence, there were areas of the body she got stuck on and she didn’t feel ready to start charging clients, in fact, she nearly gave up when she couldn’t remove wax from someone’s knees.

After talking it through she decided to do the Sienna X training… she couldn’t believe how much more practice was included and the top tips she loved. She found out exactly what she was doing wrong and right. She wished she had done this course from the start, she would be much further on in recouping the investment she had made.

Feedback from Customers and Partners was that the category is very confusing. So many types and fragrances and Sienna X wanted to find a way of keeping it simple.

When Sienna X asked clients what they wanted from their treatment, it was a calming and as pain-free as possible with a fragrance that echoed this.

We found that Therapists have their favourites, its either a Crème, Honey Wax or Gelee if its strip wax and a Roisin free alternative to offer clients with sensitive skins.

Sienna X created this compact Luxury Wax range, created with a combination of 70 years of expertise and featured in the Top 5 Wax Brands* within its first year of launch, thanks to the Therapist Voters.

You have come to the right Luxury Wax beauty brand.

Approximately 4-6 trainees per course.

You will have plenty of time to practice your routine many times on each other, gain top tips and ask questions, to ensure you have returning clients that also refer you. There is plenty of time to network with each other too, many stay in touch long after the course.

Yes, trainees new to Waxing purchase their kit prior to the course, there are different priced kits to suit your budget, it’s a great investment as they are discounted and include Training, saving you money.
