Success Stories – Esthetics

Esthetics Student Success Story: Marie Hynes

“I’m a military wife and had began a Cosmetology program in California; however, after receiving information that we’d be relocating to Whidbey Island and only being half way through a 1600 hour program I had to figure out what my options were. Unfortunately as it was a different state, my hours weren’t transferable. I knew three things, I wanted to work in the beauty industry, I wanted to be my own boss and wanted to offer services that I was passionate about. Learning that I could be an Esthetician and fulfill these three goals and be finished in about 6 months I knew this would be my new career path…”

Esthetics Student Success Story: Stephanie Sturlaugson

“I had a great job where I loved the people that I worked with! I worked at this job for just under 10 years and although I enjoyed it, I was feeling unfulfilled. It felt like I hadn’t found what I was called to do. I love helping people, I love inspiring people, I love encouraging people, but most of all I love making people feel good! I am sure that I will be able to use my passion for skincare, hair, makeup, lashes, and nails to positively impact the lives of others; it is my calling…”

Esthetics Student Success Story: Verena Schouten

“I am very motivated in whatever I choose to study. I spend a lot of my free time researching products and ingredients that benefit my clients, because I genuinely care in making them feel beautiful and confident in their skin. My favorite services to provide are hands down lash extensions and waxing! I enjoy facials as well, since they are more skincare focused, but it’s the more detailed work that I enjoy the most…”

Esthetics Student Success Story: Brianna White

“Be yourself. Let go of the fear of “what if no one wants to support me”. Promote yourself and start your social media business accounts. Document your journey. Soak up all the knowledge of your instructors. Network. Never limit yourself. Build clientele while in school and run your spa days as if you’re already in business. I’ve learned so much about myself and it’s been an emotional journey for me. I’m so glad I took a leap of faith because this is the happiest, I’ve been in a long time…”

Esthetics Student Success Story: Emily Nino

Emily chose to go into esthetics because she had known from a young age that she wanted to do something that allowed her to maintain her independence while having fun. “I love that this industry is women dominated and empowering. I’ve always wanted to help others feel confident and secure in their own skin, and I feel so fortunate to have found such an amazing path!” she states.
