What is personal presentation and why is it important?
The way we present ourselves in our personal and professional lives does give people an impression of us – remember the saying “you only get one chance to make a first impression”.
As a beauty therapist, it is even more important, since health and safety regulations must be followed. These are very strict guidelines which are not negotiable.
Although it is very early in your programme, we have already had discussions about how we should present ourselves, so let’s talk!
In groups discuss why you think we need to be careful with how we present ourselves in the beauty industry.
Write all your ideas down in the boxes below, place them in order of which you think are the most important reasons.
You will discuss and compare your answers with the other groups, and make notes of the most important points which come out of the discussion on the next page.
