A pathway to your career in the health and beauty industry.

Do you enjoy helping people to feel and look their best? Then you should consider a career in the beauty therapy industry. You can choose from several different paths, including relaxation massage, professional skin care and make-up, or the art of pedicure.

This industry requires people who are caring, creative, and attentive. If you’re already interested in make-up trends, massage treatments, and understand the importance of helping people to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, beauty and body therapy could be a great fit for you. You’ll learn how to apply your skills in a real-world setting in our on-campus beauty salon in Nelson, working with real customers.

NMIT's Beauty and Body programmes offer you stimulating studies and provides a pathway to a career in many aspects of the health and beauty industry. The programmes cover a wide range of topics including facial therapy, manicures and pedicures, waxing and electrolysis, body treatments, anatomy and physiology of the human body, cosmetic chemistry and professional practice.

Beauty therapy may appear to be a luxury industry filled with beauty and glamour, but it is in fact a demanding career requiring dedication, a love of people, and a caring nature.
