I don't know what a beaty therapist means (what's the difference between a beauty therapist and a beautician) but I think there's a big demand for such service in the market.

sweet_g,
I think the fact you aren't Polish will attract customers. I used to know one person in that 'beauty business' and, afaik, it's not too difficult to start with it, relatively. The only thing that is hard in Poland are formalities: loads of stupid formalities to set up even a little business and high taxes you need to pay when you employ someone.

I think you should have a capital to invest in the equipmnet and a lot of patience. Really a lot.
Good luck!

It would be no problem when you hire someone to do this for you. There are many tax offices, some use to get foreign costumers, and fee is not very high. But the risk for doing bussiness over here is of course much bigger for someone who know nothing about local polish habits, especially you just English speaker.

I don't know what a beaty therapist means

if you don't know what it is, how can you say there is a market for it?

do you know what? Its not all about make up and painting your nails. Aint that simple. There is a lot of hard work involved.

are you living in poland? If so you must have visited a salon where bridal services are available. Maybe some thing to relax like a swedish massage. You just want to be pampered like getting a manicure pedicure or facials. Even more..

Because I know it's something to do with beauty, and I can see that there are a lot of beauty centres in Poland that prosper.

Dr Elizabeth Dancey - fairly well respected dermatologist from the UK (I guess you'll have heard of her if you read magazines like Marie Claire and Brand New You etc) has recently opened a clinic in Krakow. I guess she's spotted a potential market to tap into.

a beauty therapist is different than a holistic therapist here in Ireland, and Poland also.....I dont know a thing about beauty :) but I know Polish women like women everywhere want to look beautiful, and they are willing to spend money at the beauty salon to do so

Um... try not to sound too flippant about it. Really, do your research. Work in a salon there for a while to build up your experience and contacts etc.

Have you ever even been to Poland?

is this like when you give therapy to someone who is beautiful and doesn't know how to handle it? intriguing if so.

Joking aside, this can be a valuable service for women. It is sad that such places tend to attract vain ladies but it can be for many. Those who work with the stars must attract a small fortune.

She told me we couldn't afford beer anymore and I'd have to quit.

Then i caught her spending 150PLN on makeup.

And I asked how come I had to give up stuff and she didn't.

She said she needed the makeup to look pretty for me.

I told her that was what the beer was for.

I don't think she is coming back.

Studying what? If you know that beauty therapy is your vocation, surely there are more relevant qualifications that you can study.

I know a hairdresser who knew what he wanted to do from a v. early age. He had his own salon by 22 and through his combination of skill, talent, personality, business accumen and sheer hard work is now very successful... and I can no longer get an appointment with him without booking 6 months in advance :(
