Are you looking for a rewarding career in the beauty industry that can open doors and usher you into an exciting and enchanting career working with skincare products and cosmetics? An esthetician is an educated professional with a license to use skin care therapy to treat skin back to health. Let’s see if you have the top skills that make a great esthetician:
- Communication & Active Listening
Interacting with clients, actively listening to what they are wanting and making them feel like they’re being heard is extremely important. Making clients feel that they matter is a sure-fire way to get them to come back. Returning customers can often make you more money than obtaining new clientele.
- Detail Oriented
An esthetician must be detail-oriented and efficient. You should be observing the skin and asking questions at the beginning of a spa treatment, so you are able to customize their treatment. If you have a knack for the fine details, becoming an esthetician may be a great career option for you.
- Familiarity with a Large Array of Services
In the salon and spa industry, it’s very seldom that a single person will come to a salon more than once every 2-3 months. Becoming familiar with a large array of services, such as, waxing, threading, facials and wraps, can add value to the salon or spa you work in.
- Business Attitude
As an esthetician, it is important to have a business woman/man mindset. Know how to sell your products and services, always be personable and answer questions honestly. Sell products you personally and honestly believe in. This will keep clients coming back.
In order to stand out in the sea of all other estheticians, you must have a creative side! There is nothing worse than a boring esthetician that won’t take chances and try something new. Color outside the lines.
