FAQS

For our Beginners waxing course you don’t need any existing beauty therapy experience or qualifications. These courses are Guild Training International (GTI) courses delivered by nkd. Before being accepted onto the practical course, all students must enrol and complete the GTI Professional standards course which covers the basic requirements of health and safety, legislation, hygiene, and sanitisation as well as personal appearance, and professional ethics. It is a Guild requirement that you complete this course before your waxing course theory.

We endeavour to ensure that all training course attendees get to practice on at least 2 models during every course they attend. Please note that the vast majority of waxing courses only offer one model per student, meaning that, on most other female intimate waxing course, students all wax each other but do not have any additional external models sourced for them.

For an additional fee, we are able to provide additional models at the end of each day for further one-to-one supervised practice. These waxes would take place downstairs in nkd’s waxing salon. The cost of this is £35 per model and this service must be booked and paid for in full in advance to enable us to source the required number of models.

To protect ourselves and you, nkd has high standards. If we do not feel you have reached the required level of waxing on the day of your course, we are sorry but we will be unable to certify you. In that instance, you will be given one month to go away, practice your techniques and return to nkd to be re-assessed. Unfortunately, we will not be able to refund you the cost of your course or any associated monies if you fail your re-assessment.

For this reason, we advise that you ensure you are already proficient and confident in traditional “pot and spatula” type waxing before booking onto an advanced waxing course.

You will be asked to pay a minimum 50% of the cost of your course upon booking in order to secure your place. The balance is payable 4 weeks before your training date.

If you cancel up to 4 weeks before your course, you are entitled to a 100% refund. If you cancel up to 2 weeks before your course, you are entitled to a 50% refund of the cost of the course, unless you manage to find a replacement student for the same course date. If you cancel with less than 2 weeks’ notice, we will be unable to refund the cost of your course, unless you manage to find a replacement student for the same course date. In these cases, we reserve the right to charge a £15 administration fee.

Note that the following occurrences are also non-refundable:

  • If you turn up without the required amount of hair and without a model who has the required amount of hair and you are not allowed to participate in the course as a result.
  • If you fail to pass the course on the day or when you return at a later date to be reassessed.
  • If you turn up to a course without holding the minimum level of qualifications for that course and you are unable to complete the course as a result.
 

Maximum class sizes will be usually be 6 – 8 students. For classes of 6 – 8 students or more, we will have two trainers on hand to oversee all practical sessions. nkd feels very strongly that class sizes should be kept small/the relevant number of trainers are on hand to ensure that every student gets as much attention as possible. We recommend that you think very carefully before enrolling on any waxing training courses which accept more than 6 – 8 students, unless a second trainer will be present.

Lunch is not provided. There are lots of supermarkets, cafes and bars near to our salons and training centres where you can buy lunch from.

Please wear normal professional salon working attire, e.g. a tunic or something similar.

I used to dread my waxing but I feel very at ease at nkd. The staff are very calm and patient and immediately make you feel comfortable. I am really not good at all with pain, but the wax used at nkd is so quick and painless.

- H.K

After visiting several other salons and being left disappointed and in pain I decided to try NKD. My therapist delivered a very precise & professional intimate wax. Best wax I’ve ever had and I will never go anywhere else now. Thank you NKD x

- Tammy Scott

You are the waxing professionals – you get on with the job in an efficient, friendly and effective way. I have even been known to nearly fall asleep whilst my therapist has waxed my legs before – what greater accolade than that is there for a waxing team?

- Sarah Buck
Salon Client

I thought the trainer was very professional with in-depth knowledge of waxing, as well as care for clients. I thought it was very organised with a lot of theory as well as practical knowledge being taught. I chose nkd as based on what I’d seen online they seemed the most professional and I wanted to make sure my qualification was respected 

- Sadie Cubitt
Training School Graduate

It was so well organised, fun, friendly and informative. There is nothing that could of been done better. Louise was a phenomenal trainer. I was welcomed and made to feel so comfortable. As an anxious person I was made to feel at ease. Louise created an environment and culture that was supportive, kind and very considerate to all the different ranges of peoples experience or lack of in this field. The follow up once I had enquired was very efficient, friendly helpful and not pushy.

- Louise Veira

Sarah, thank you very much for your overall support during my waxing training. Your positivity and encouragement that I can wax has made me believe that I can do it. One of my goals for this year was to get myself onto a waxing course and be qualified. I’m pleased to say, I achieved this goal and I’m on the way to build my own business as a waxing and threading therapist
