So how is the scale of the makeup and beauty industry affecting career choices? And how are those choices driving demand for different types of beauty courses and makeup courses in Ireland?
The top beauty related job searches in Ireland that we found were:
Beauty jobs (5,400s/m)
Beautician Jobs (880s/m)
Beauty career (440s/m)
Beautician Career (110s/m)
How to become a beautician? (58s/m)
The search data is showing that there is a significant interest in pursuing a career in the beauty industry in Ireland. So how is this impacting the beauty courses that are on offer?
Both makeup courses and beauty courses are showing 5,400 search queries per month. So let’s take a look at some of the more popular specialised beauty course types.
Beauty Courses & Makeup Courses - Specialised Beauty Topics
Nail Courses (2,900s/m), Massage Courses (2,900s/m), Make-up Artistry Courses (880s/m), Hair and Beauty Courses (880s/m), Nail technician courses (720s/m), Gel nail Courses (720s/m), Waxing Courses (390s/m), Threading Courses (260s/m)
The data is showing that from broad terms like beauty courses and makeup courses right through to more focused terms such as nail technician courses and threading courses, there is significant search activity in Ireland each month. “We wrongly assumed that this sector would have been adversely affected by the current economic climate. If we go purely by the search data, it seems that the beauty training industry is just not seeing the same declines in discretionary spend as other sectors” commented Dineen.
