Esthetician Schools and Careers in New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana, is known for good food, a rich and varied history, and, of course, Mardi Gras. With all of the outdoor events, people spend a great deal of time outside—perhaps wearing costumes and heavy makeup to boot. In addition to the population who lives there, the city welcomes millions of tourists each year—and many people like to spoil themselves with spa visits on vacation.

Weather can affect skin health. The city is hot and humid. Even in January, the average temperature is between 64 and 79 degrees, and NOLA experiences 119 days of rain per year. This type of weather can cause sweating, which may contribute to acne and dry skin. Between this and the effects of makeup on the skin, estheticians are essential. They can recognize and treat basic skin conditions, cleanse and revitalize skin, and provide advice for clients about improving skin health in their daily lives.

To make this city even more desirable, New Orleans estheticians made an annual median salary of $39,090, or $18.79 per hour, in 2018—higher than the state average by nearly $12,000 and the national average by nearly $8,000 per year. Esthetician jobs are expected to grow by 11% in Louisiana between 2016 and 2026.
