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 Albany:
"Valuable skills."
Continue an esthetic career if you love working with people and money isn't a factor. This career is rewarding because your job is affecting a person's life by helping them feel better about their appearance. However, it takes a long time to build a level of higher compensation. My advice to an new esthetician is to stick with the choice if you are compassionate to learn new skills through education, certification and college.

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.
