Launch Your Day Spa Career: Becoming an Esthetician

Becoming an esthetician is a popular career choice as day spas and beauty treatments flourish in our busy population. Choosing a day spa career is an excellent choice for those who love working with people, thrive in a relaxed environment, and want to make others look and feel great.

What is an Esthetician?
An Esthetician is a licensed professional who performs spa services for customers. There are many facets involved in the varied jobs that estheticians can hold:

– Cosmetology: Learning how to apply makeup to clients for weddings, photography, etc.
– Hair removal: The art of waxing and building client relationships.
– Facials and Skin Care: Facial masks and treatments, skin consultations and analysis.
– Traditional Spa Services: Manicures, pedicures, nails, etc.
– Reflexology: treatments and massage for the hands and feet.
– Spa Therapies: Different massage techniques, aromatherapy, body wraps
There are also advanced areas of study in aesthetics that cover working with physicians and dermatologists. An esthetician can focus on one place in his or her career or excel in many depending on the job and salary desired.

How to Become an Esthetician

To start an Esthetician career, a diploma is required from a licensed cosmetology school. Be sure to pick a school that offers all of the areas of focus that interest you. Choose a local beauty school that is foremost in its education and training. You should also speak to the school’s previous graduates and find out what practical experience they offer.
When you are attending your school of choice, you can choose to specialize in certain areas if you choose (such as the advanced areas). A program of this type will usually last less than a year and consist of theory, practical training, and work experience.

What Kinds of Jobs are Available

Estheticians generally make anywhere between $25,000 – $60, 000 per year depending on the type of job they have, the location, and the commissions and tips received.

A cosmetology school diploma in aesthetics should leave graduates prepared to take on a day spa career in any full-service day spa, medical spa, beauty salon, resort, or cruise ship spa.
