Esthetician Schools near Washington, D.C. / Hagerstown, MD
If a career as an esthetician interests you, consider earning licensure and beginning a career in Washington, D.C. In a 2016 study of 150 major metros, D.C. ranked 20th overall in best cities for your skin; however, they ranked 131st in skin health and skincare (i.e., the quantity of skincare providers, businesses, and so forth). Additionally, in 2019, D.C. proved to be the 18th most stressed-out city in the country, with nearby Alexandria, VA, ranking even worse. Therefore, the city needs excellent estheticians to not just help with skin health, but to give D.C.-area residents a chance to unwind. Though D.C. doesn't publish individual growth or salary statistics, the metro of Washington-Arlington-Alexandria reported an annual median pay of $30,560 per year ($14.69 per hour) as of 2018, and the nation as a whole anticipates the field to grow by 11% between 2018 and 2028.
