Massachusetts Skin Care & Esthetics Schools

Esthetics combines skin care and makeup, two of the fastest-growing aspects of the beauty industry. When you become an esthetics professional, you never know what each day will bring, whether it’s professional makeup application for a wedding, a chemical peel that takes years of age off of a client’s face, or temporary hair removal that gets your clients ready for the beach.

Discover how an MA esthetician license can make you the go-to professional for all of this and more by contacting local esthetics programs below.

Opportunities in Massachusetts’ Beauty Industry

The more time you spend in this industry and the more you build your base of clients, the more flexibility you may have in terms of where and when you work.
