Top Careers for Estheticians

Let’s face it, there are plenty of great reasons to pursue a career in the beauty industry. But for some of us, it can be tough to narrow down just exactly what part of the beauty industry you’d like to work in. Fortunately, there’s one career path in beauty that offers plenty of different options to explore. We’re talking about estheticians! It’s true. Licensed estheticians have plenty of choices when it comes to what to do with their training. Let’s take a closer look at some of the top careers available if you’re considering becoming an esthetician.

Skincare Specialist

Everybody has skin. Everywhere. So, it certainly makes sense that the world needs the skills of the talented estheticians who help people keep the skin they’re in healthy and glowing.

Make-up Artist

If working in film or television sounds appealing, but not so much in front of the camera, make-up artists get to play an important, creative, and fun role in the entertainment industry. But let’s not forget the world of fashion and cosmetics in general. Someone’s got to get those models runway-ready!

Salon or Spa Owner

If you’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit and a head for business, running your own salon is a great option when you’re a licensed esthetician. After all, the more you know about the services you’re selling, the better you can sell them!

Medical Esthetician

For the beauty all-star who wants to go farther than skin-deep into skincare, becoming a medical esthetician could be the path for you. You’ll be helping people minimize scars, wrinkles, age spots. And as a medical esthetician, you can even partner with dermatologists or plastic surgeons, which could open the door to even more opportunities.

Beauty Blogger

With good writing skills and an esthetician’s license, you could be poised to become the next big beauty influencer. Like the idea of working from home? Well, beauty writers can work from home writing about all things beauty.

Esthetics Instructor

Being passionate about beauty is something you can share by training the next generation of beauty artists. And you can still build your clientele! It’s the best of both worlds!
