Estheticians clean and care for skin with facials, full-body treatments, and other treatments such as head and neck massages. Some estheticians also apply makeup and may also offer services to nails such as manicures and pedicures. They may also remove facial hair with waxing and laser treatments and tint eyelashes and eyebrows. Typically, estheticians work in salons and spas.

Typical costs:

  • Community colleges and private technical schools offer esthetician training, and costs vary significantly between schools. Private school costs up to $9,000 for tuition, while community college costs are close to $2,500.
  • At the higher end of the scale, Pure Aesthetic Tucson[1] in Arizona charges $8,400 for 600 hours of instruction.
  • For state residents, community college can be much cheaper than private technical school. Spokane Community College[2] charges $2,640 for 30 hours of classroom training for state residents. Tuition for out of state students is $8,300, comparable to private institutions.

What should be included:
  • Esthetician training focuses on the skin, and includes training in basic skin care such as facials. Students may also learn full body treatments, such as mud wraps and scrubs.
  • Training may also include hair removal treatments such as electrolysis and waxing. Several other advanced treatments may also be taught, such as tinting of brows and lashes, applying tanner, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Additional costs:
  • Most states require estheticians to be licensed. License requirements vary, but typically include completion of a course of study at an accredited school, an exam, an initial license fee and a biannual renewal fee.
  • Fees are usually minimal; in New York[3] license fees are $20, in South Dakota[4] they are $80.
  • Some states charge their exam fee separately, while other states combine exam and initial license fees. South Dakota[5] charges a $40 license fee, while in Virginia, for example, the exam and license fee is $115.
  • Books are typically additional, about $100-$200 per term.
Discounts:
  • Typically, community college students are eligible for federal financial aid[6] , such as Stafford Loans, Pell Grants and PLUS loans.
  • Some schools, including Pure Aesthetics[7] in Tucson, offer partial tuition scholarships.
  • Contact individual schools' financial aid offices to see what kind of financial aid is offered.
Shopping for esthetician school:
  • Students should enroll at schools that meet the state's training requirements. For a list of licensing requirements by state, see the Beauty School Directory[8] and individual state's licensing board's websites for up-to-date fees.
  • The admissions office should provide information on the success of their graduates, including how many pass required exams and find work after graduation.

I think I received the best training possible here in Atlanta. After 1000 hours I had learned all about the physiology and anatomy of the skin as well as massage techniques, chemical peels, microderm, full body scrubs and wraps, the tri active laser. radio frequency and the list goes on and on.In most states that only require 600 hours, I am considered a Master Esthetician and that was immediately after graduating!
