Hello. Is anyone an Esthetician?? How do you become one??
I am! I went to an Aveda Institute for 5.5 months on a full time term and graduated. Upon graduation I took a test from the state board and got my license.
Ohhhh. So I would just have to find a beauty school?? Then take a state board exam? Do you love why you do???
Find a beauty school and check how many hrs you will need in order to apply for a license. I think most states require 600hrs, but some require more/less. I have been an esthetician for about 2 years and I love what I do!
I have had my esthetician license for 10 years, and haven't used it in 8. What is it that you want to do?
I'm in school right now. In CA it's 600 hours.... I'm 180 into it and love it!!! But if your only interested in being a MUA than you don't need the schooling... You'll get more education on facials and waxing etc.
Thanks everyone!! Im thinking about studying to actually deal with skin care!!
I am went to school in GA for 1000 hours. I love it I'm a lash artist and I see nothing but good things for getting. Good luck 💋
School and depends on how many hours your state requires I'm going to school to be one and in California it's 600 hours

I'm an esthetician in Tennessee - I went to school for 750 hours && took a state board. I'm back I'm college now though because of a lack of demand for estheticians in my area. If you live in a small town I would highly encourage you to research job and salary opportunities before going to school for it. I feel like I wasted a lot of time && money on something that I won't be able to use for a career
Thanks for all your input ladies!!

I went to community college full time for 2 semesters. Got my license and glad I got it under my belt. I'm a pro makeup artist and incorporate skin care and educate my clients with each makeup application. You could work for plastic surgeons, med spas, day spas, laser centers, etc. the sky's the limit!! Go for it!
