Esthetician Schools near Cleveland / Akron / Canton, OH

If you're an Ohioan who wants to work in esthetics, Cleveland, Akron, or Canton may be the ideal place for you to start. While Ohio cities' rankings in a 2016 study of skin health in the United States vary wildly, Akron ranked second to last—it did poorly across the board, in every category from skin cancer prevalence to number of skincare providers. As estheticians not only care for blemishes but also can identify skin diseases, you could be a huge help to those living in that city and others.

In 2019, Cleveland estheticians earned a mean wage of $42,030 per year ($20.21 per hour); those in Akron were paid an average of $28,180 ($13.55); and estheticians in Canton earned a whopping $53,550 ($25.75). Ohio expects the number of esthetician positions to grow by 13% between 2016 and 2026, slightly higher than the national average expectation.

Estheticians in Ohio must complete 616 hours of training, 16 of which focus exclusively on microdermabrasion, and pass multiple licensure exams before being allowed to practice. The esthetics schools below will all help you earn your credits and pass your tests.
