What is Esthetics?

Cosmetology and cosmetology instructor programs have been Aveda Idaho’s bread and butter. But we’ve recently decided to introduce an esthetics course to our Boise location. As a prospective beauty professional, you’re probably wondering what the real differences between a cosmetologist and an esthetician are.

What Does an Esthetician Know?

Estheticians in our program can learn the following:

  • Physiology
  • Makeup Application
  • Waxing
  • Facials
  • Anatomy
  • Safety
  • Sanitation
  • Communication
  • Business
  • Aromatherapy
  • And More!

The main difference between cosmetologist and estheticians is emphasis on hair. Cosmos can learn hair coloring, cutting, styling, design, and other aspects of hair, whereas estheticians won’t. Estheticians focus on the science of skincare more in depth than cosmetologists do.

Where Can an Esthetician Work?

Licensed, well-qualified estheticians can work in places like:

  • Spas
  • Salons
  • High-end Spas
  • High-end Salons
  • Resorts
  • Cruise Ships
  • Waxing Bars
  • Brow Bars
  • Weddings
  • And Many More!

Qualified estheticians may be able to have one of these great jobs:

  • Waxing Specialist
  • Brow Specialist
  • Facial Artist
  • Spa Manager
  • Spa Owner
  • Salon Manager
  • Freelancer
  • Makeup Artist
  • And more!

Why Would I Want to Be an Esthetician?

Esthetician’s are passionate about helping people. Many people in this career find happiness and joy in helping someone become comfortable with themselves. While some may say beauty may be more than skin deep, we know that feeling beautiful on the outside can make your insides shine, too!

If you’re caring, happy, outgoing, personable, creative, smart, and all over awesome, you may enjoy a career in esthetics!

How Does an Esthetician Get Licensed?

In the state of Idaho, you are required to have 600 hours of esthetics education to become licensed.
You must also pass the state and national exams. There is both a written and a practical test to completed.
Submit your information to the Idaho Bureau of Occupational Licensing.
