The Career Path Of A Licensed Esthetician

If you are looking for a rewarding career, then you may want to consider having a career in esthetics. Contrary to popular belief, estheticians are not limited to working in a beauty salon. You will have the opportunity to work in a dermatologist’s office, medical spa and many other places.

How To Become An Esthetician

If you are interested in having a career in esthetics, then you will need to complete a program at an accredited school. After you graduate from esthetician school, you will need to pass a state examination. The state examination consists of a written portion and a hands-on portion.

Once you pass the examination, you will be able to have a successful career as an esthetician. You will spend your day applying makeup, performing waxing, facials and giving skin care advice. You will also have the opportunity to further your education after you have established your career. It will be easier for you to stay up to par with the latest trends and developments in beauty if you take continuing education courses.

How Much Money Can I Make?

The average salary for an esthetician ranges from ,000 and ,000 per year.

It is important to note that there are several things that will affect your actual pay. The place that you live, experience level, your clientele, employer and the services that you provide are some of the many things that will determine your salary.

Getting Started

The first thing that you will need to do is enroll in a cosmetology school. Cosmetology is a field that focuses on skin, hair and nail care. However, if you are only interested in the skin care aspect of cosmetology, then you should consider choosing an esthetician school.

Esthetician programs are also offered at many massage schools. Before you choose a school, you want to check to make sure that it is accredited. If you choose an accredited school, then you will be better prepared for the examinations after you graduate.

Knowing Where You Want To Go In Your Career

The amount of time that you spend in school is contingent upon the type of program that you choose. Some programs can be completed in as little as six months, but other programs may take over two years to complete.

Your career goals, budget and personal preferences are some of the additional things that you should take into consideration when choosing a program. You may find it beneficial to speak to an advisor or admission counselor because they will help you find the school that has the courses that you need.
