Learn To Wax Like The Experts Do

nkd ( ) the waxing school, is a Perron Rigot-approved training academy offering basic and advanced waxing & specialist beauty courses to beauty professionals across the UK.

Who is nkd ( ) – and what do we do?

At nkd, we don’t just teach waxing, we live and breathe it all day every day. First & foremost, nkd is a highly-successful commercial waxing salon. We’re also the flagship UK salon for Perron Rigot waxes.

With over 15,000 clients on our books, we treat more than 1,000 happy waxing customers every month. Brazilian & Hollywood waxing is our forte and since opening in 2009, we have carried out tens of thousands of male and female intimate waxes.

This is why we consider ourselves to be true waxing experts and so well-placed to offer committed salon owners and beauty therapists like you the delicate art of advanced waxing.

NOW OPEN – nkd ( ) The waxing school

For a small number of days each year, nkd now opens its salon to teach other beauty therapists and aspiring beauty therapists how to become the best waxers they can possibly be.

All of our training is delivered by our highly-skilled and very experienced therapists who spend the rest of their time treating real clients in a real salon (as opposed to spending all of their time in a training environment, never actually practising the very trade they are teaching).

Courses for 2018 include:-

  • Beginners Bootcamp Waxing Courses
  • Female Intimate Waxing Courses
  • Male Intimate Waxing Courses
  • Advanced Female Intimate Waxing Courses
  • Threading Courses
  • Lash & Brow Treatment Courses

Spaces are limited on the occasional waxing courses we run, because this is the only way that we can offer wax training without it affecting the salon side of our business.

Gain Access to our Courses from as little as £25 a month

The problem is that good training can be expensive. Mediocre training courses cost a lot, never mind training courses run by true experts in their field. The price for our one-day courses is typically between £250 – £275, depending on which course you choose.

This is why nkd’s Annual Training Programme gives you the option of spreading the cost of your training courses across a whole year. So, now, you can pay for your courses in 12 affordable monthly payments instead of having to shell out a large upfront cost.

There are 4 different levels to our Annual Training Programme

Access to ONE training day a year costs £25 a month*
Access to any TWO training days a year costs £35 a month*
Access to THREE training days a year costs £45 a month*
Six training days a year costs just £75 a month*(which could save you more than £500 compared to paying for the courses individually)

*Plus a £19.95 registration fee every time you reserve a space on the particular course you wish to attend.

Limited Availability on the 2018/2019 Annual Training Programme

In addition to getting to spread the cost of your wax training over a whole year, there are other major benefits to signing up to nkd’s Annual Training Programme.

If you are successful in securing a place, we promise to love and nurture you as if you’re our own staff member working on our own valued clients!
