Working as an Esthetician

Estheticians practice the skills learned in school to perform facials, waxes, skin analysis, skin treatments, and more. They may use their business skills to open their own salon or spa and become self-employed. Indiana allows estheticians to open a mobile salon after they have been licensed for six months in the industry.
