The event returned to the RDS Dublin earlier this month and new dates have already been announced for 2023. Top trends in the annual fixture for beauty, hair and spa professionals in Ireland were less about makeup and hair, and more about education and insurance.

Yes indeed, you read it here, and the visitors who streamed in to see exhibitors across all sectors of the industry including skincare, hair, aesthetics, nails, makeup and more also had ample opportunity to bring their business insurance up to par and learn the latest in educational advancement.

“People are more versatile in their approach to not only learning but also working, fitting in their work around lifestyle,” said Irish Beauty.ie’s Amelia Black. “Surely we should be asking about training and insurance before you let someone cut your hair or do a laser treatment. These are things that can damage you.”

Irish Beauty.ie and its insurance division at AIT have recorded litigation cases on the rise in recent years, and concerns over skills training versus the holistic approach offered – from student to professional level – are real. Anna Louise Kenny of the UK-based Skin Philosophy said that knowledge drawn from those gained in training aren’t enough anymore: “What’s trending is education,” said Anna Kenny. “We’re very passionate about making sure of good standards but also flexibility.”

The educational approach at Skin Philosophy offers online learning and remote assessment followed by practical examination at a number of locations.

“Once you finish your assignments then you come to us for practical (assessment),” added Anna Louise, who was also available with advice on combining multiple therapies in one treatment. “You can learn online.”
