Esthetician Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Esthetician in Palm Desert:
"Hotels and private living communities."
This is a wonderful place to start out, usually paid hourly rates plus commission plus gratis. A hotel always has guests that will frequently get treatments and a private community is a place to build your clientele.

Esthetician in Elgin:
"Doesn't Pay Off."
Do not consider this field. Facials, microderm, waxings, etc are all a luxury now days. Not too people are familiar with skin health and the importance, therefore not a big clientele. Save your money and go to a community college and earn a better degree.
