Here is a list of unique and sought-after careers that estheticians and aspiring estheticians can strive for.


There may be no more beloved profession than being an instructor. Being an instructor is a profession where giving away all of your beauty secrets is encouraged. Instructors are in a unique position to teach while also continuing their education in esthetics. As an instructor, you will learn many things through the observations of your students. It’s a satisfying profession because you can witness the small breakthroughs students achieve in the classroom every day.

As masters of your craft, you demonstrate how to perform various techniques and develop a curriculum.

Medical Esthetician

As a medical esthetician, you will be working alongside medical professionals in a controlled medical environment, often treating patients with more substantial needs. Patients who seek the services of medical estheticians have a range of conditions spanning skin trauma, aging skin and severe acne scars. This line of work is often meaningful. Patients will look to you for assistance and assurance.

You can find medical estheticians in hospitals, plastic surgery offices, and dermatology offices. Medical estheticians are also a profession that can be self-employed.

Beauty Buyer

The goal of a beauty buyer is to get their hands on the holy grail of beauty products. From pore-shrinking serums to complexion-brightening foundations, beauty buyers have extensive knowledge about skin types, beauty trends, and skin care staples like cleansers, body creams and lip scrubs.

Finding clean formulations that are effective is one of the skills of a beauty buyer. Stocking products that customers will be devoted to is a knack that beauty buyers develop with experience.

Spa Owner

A spa owner has a clear vision of what they want their aesthetic to look like and the experience to feel like when clients visit. A day spa offers facials, massages and many more self-care treatments for guests. If you have a little wanderlust, you might enjoy managing a spa on a cruise ship, where you can help women reset and rejuvenate their skin while traveling and also enjoy a burst of vitamin sea while you’re sailing the open ocean.

Once a spa owner has established their business model, created a dream team of professionals, and has developed a loyal clientele, the business will thrive. Of course, this takes a lot of hard work, experience and extensive knowledge in hospitality, beauty and skin care.

Beauty Blogger

If you like reviewing products and doing demonstrations on camera, this may be a career path to consider. Beauty bloggers are content creation acrobats. With a talent for writing, bloggers will feature all of the buzzy skin care ingredients while promoting brands they trust.

Being a beauty blogger can be a rewarding career since you can curate every topic you want to explore.

Lash Extension Specialist

Lash extensions are in demand and are keeping lash extension specialists busy with appointments five days a week or more. As a lash extension specialist, you will consult clients on the best materials to use and go through the entire process from lash selection to a safe and sanitary removal procedure.
