 Are you obsessed with healthy skin? Do you drive your friends crazy with a lot of unsolicited advice about what they should do to keep their skin looking its best? You should consider a career as an esthetician. The rest of this article will give you more tips on how you can start a career as an esthetician.

Education and Training Required

Estheticians must be high school graduates. They must also be licensed by the state and graduates of an accredited cosmetology school. You should also get trained in the following areas:

  • Skin analysis
  • Exfoliation
  • Makeup treatment
  • Extraction
  • Facial massage

There are varied classroom sizes.  This is determined by enrollment and available instructors.  Classroom sizes can vary depending on enrollment and available instructors. In addition to skin care, an esthetician program also focuses on the following subjects:

  • Nutrition
  • Anatomy
  • Cosmetic ingredients
  • Physiology
  • Marketing
  • Business
  • Bookkeeping
  • Management.

I know the last four subjects seem like odd subjects for an esthetician to study, but once you graduate from your program you will most likely be running your own business.  You need to know how to do these things if you want your business to be successful and profitable.  Once all formal training is completed, prospective estheticians must apply for licensure with their respective state.

Obtaining a Job As An Esthetician

Many new graduates choose to shadow a seasoned professional. This is a wise decision as most clients would be very reluctant to let a new graduate work on their skin without having a seasoned veteran close by. You may also build your clientele by offering to do skin treatments on your friends and family to get more feedback. Some schools even offer the chance to do hands on work as a part of their training. Be sure to look for this opportunity when you select your school. The best way to get a job or build up your client list is to simply network. Have some business cards made indicating that you are an esthetician. Be sure to list the services you provide on the card. Put a coupon on the back of the card. This will make people keep the card. Tell everyone you know that you have openings for new clients in your new practice as an esthetician. Offer a special bonus for your first ten clients to get the ball rolling.

A career as an esthetician is hard work. You will probably be on your feet for most of the day. You also have to be able to deal with lots of people everyday. However, if you love being on your feet and dealing with customers, you should have no problems developing a successful career in helping people get and stay gorgeous.
