- Hair & Beauty AcadeMY
The Hair and Beauty Academy at Blue Mountains College is settled in the heart of the world heritage listed Blue Mountains in Katoomba within an easy short stroll of the train station.
We offer the Diploma of Beauty Therapy, Diploma of Specialist Make Up Services, Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy, Certificate III in Beauty Services and Certificate II in Nail Technology along with a variety of short course such as facials, body massage, hot stone massage and spray tanning.
We boast a brand new, highly sophisticated spa training facility with state of the art equipment. We have four simulated spa, beauty and nail salons featuring a vichy shower and hydrotherapy spa, micro dermabrasion machines along with up to date electrical equipment allowing our students to practice their profession in a real hands-on environment with the guidance and expertise of our highly skilled, specialised and industry current teachers and staff.
The students have the opportunity to organise, manage and run the simulated salon so they experience the full benefit of running a day spa, nail bar and beauty therapy salon which will increase their employment opportunities. Having the opportunity to train on customers in all aspects of beauty therapy and nail technology is a great advantage to our students.
The college is ITEC accredited. ITEC is the UK's leading awarding body for professional qualifications in beauty therapy. As graduates of the Academy, you are eligible to gain an additional ITEC international qualification which is recognised in over 33 countries worldwide.
