Esthetician School

Who are Estheticians?

Estheticians are licensed, skincare specialists. As licensed professionals in skincare, their most popular skill set is to cleanse and beautify the face and body to enhance a person’s appearance.

When working in the service industry, an esthetician will perform a wide variety of tasks like:

  • Perform skin analysis for clients

  • Prescribe treatment plans and products regimens for healthier skin

  • Wax unwanted hair

  • Prep and cleanse the skin before makeup applications

  • Apply makeup and eyelash extensions

  • Coach clients on how to care for their skin at home

  • And so much more!

However, the service industry is just one nugget of the beauty world. Estheticians can work in blogging/vlogging, education, product launches, marketing, advertising, and in the faces of entrepreneurs worldwide -- advocating and creating the future of skincare.
