The Basic Esthetics Program teaches how to apply make-up, provide skincare, and beautify the face or neck by use of cosmetic preparations, antiseptics, tonics, lotions, or creams. Services include applying eyelashes or removing facial hair by tweezing depilatories or waxing. The actual day-to-day job tasks of an esthetician can vary greatly. Some specialize in one or two cutting-edge treatments in a luxury spa, others perform a variety of services in smaller spas. In department stores, estheticians are often hired to push one particular brand of product or do a quick makeover on a prospective customer.
However, all estheticians share a few tasks. Most importantly, they must make sure that clients are comfortable and pleased with their treatments. They must remain friendly, sympathetic, and accommodating regardless of the circumstances. They must also act as salespeople, promoting their treatments and the sale of the products they use.
The program includes theory and practical applications related to all aspects of facial care (cleansing, masking, therapy, nutrition, and hair removal). Classes are presented by means of lecture, hands-on demonstration, audio/video, and professional guest presentations.
After completion of the course, graduates will be prepared to pass the state board exams. This course prepares the student for employment in the cosmetology industry as an esthetician, salon/spa owner and/or manager, or as a technician or product representative in the beauty industry.
Instructors use many different techniques to teach the course including, lectures, class discussions, student projects, demonstrations, quizzes, tests, and hands-on practical experience. Audiovisual aids and guest speakers are also implemented.
Education is the best key success in life. Prepares you for a career in cosmetology with a dynamic and creative.
Starting a career in the beauty industry is a great way to express your talents in a creative, exciting, and professional environment. You’ll be working in salons with people who share your interests in helping craft their customer’s unique expression of style and beauty.
Personal appearance workers enjoy keeping up on the latest fashion and beauty techniques and often develop their beauty technician skills by attending training workshops and classes at salons, cosmetology schools, or industry trade shows. The beauty product industry also works closely with beauty specialists by introducing them to a wide range of beauty products and services. As retail sales become an increasingly important part of salons’ revenue, the ability to be an effective salesperson and beautician provides another means of generating income on top of beauty service fees and tips.
Successful personal appearance workers should have an understanding of fashion, art, and technical design. They should enjoy working with the public and be willing and able to follow client instructions. Communication, image, and attitude play an important role in career success, and business skills are important for those who plan on operating their own salons.
