Esthetician Schools and Careers in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colorado, are two beautiful cities with a million things to do. Both have arts, history, and, being alongside the Pike and San Isabel National Forests & Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands, easy access to incredible outdoor activities. In fact, Colorado is one of the country's most "outdoorsy" states.

The fact that people spend so much time outside means that Colorado Springs and Pueblo are the perfect places to become an esthetician. The climate is typically cool and dry but has large ups and downs, even between day and night. This kind of environment, especially when combined with wind, can dry out the skin and leave it red and cracked; it can also make eczema worse.

This is where estheticians come in. As an esthetician, you'll cleanse, moisturize, and diagnose and treat skin conditions. Colorado as a whole also has the highest per-capita rate of skin cancer in the country, and with your help and advice, you can help clients prevent cancer before it starts—or refer them to dermatologists if you have a concern.

Colorado is the highest-paying state for estheticians, with a mean annual wage of $52,020 per year, or approximately $27 per hour, as of 2018. It is experiencing a whopping 24% rate of job growth for estheticians, which is more than double the national average.

Now is a great time to begin your esthetician career in the cities of Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Below are some premiere esthetician schools in the area. All of them will enable you to fulfill the state-required 20 credit hours and 600 clock hours of training.
