Full Specialist Program

Are you passionate about helping others achieve beautiful, glowing skin? Do you nerd out about sharing the highest quality eco-friendly skincare products with others? Take control of your future and find your unique path in the beauty industry with an education in esthetics.

What to Expect From Our Esthiology Program

A full specialist esthetician is licensed to provide a range of services including facials, manicures, and pedicures. In addition to practical education in skincare, our esthiology program goes beyond to incorporate a variety of health and wellness techniques to help carve your niche as an esthetician or skincare specialist. You’ll learn the science and application of:

  • Skincare
  • Makeup
  • Wax techniques
  • Nail care
  • Other treatments

Our esthiology program doesn’t stop at skill development. Licensed professionals have the potential to work in a spa or start their own with business strategies included in our curriculum.

You’ll also receive a kit with all the tools and products needed to complete our esthiology program. The state licensing fees are included too!

Full-Time and Part-Time Evening Schedules Available

Don’t let your busy schedule get in the way of achieving your dream. We understand some of our students may be working full-time or part-time, have children, or other significant time commitments. We offer two different class options so you can choose the one that best fits your schedule.

  • Full-time. Our 600-hour program can be completed in as little as 6.5 months.
  • Part-time Evening*. Our 600-hour program can be completed in as little as 9.5 months.

  • Scholarships
  • Financial aid to those who qualify

Your Future Is in Your Hands

What can you do with a full specialist license? There are a number of potential careers available to licensed estheticians in the beauty industry, including:

  • Salon/Spa Esthetician
  • Skin care specialist
  • Makeup artist
  • Nail artist
  • Salon/Spa manager or owner

Estheticians don’t always stay in one place. Some choose to travel the world on yachts, cruise ships, or lend their services to communities in need. Others choose to stay close to home, helping their clients learn the effects of different types of products in their own spa. If this sounds like something you’d love to do, schedule a tour or apply to our esthiology program today!
