Esthetician Schools Near Harligen / Weslaco / Brownsville/ McAllen, TX

If you want to become an esthetician in Texas, consider Harlingen, Weslaco, Brownsville, or McAllen as places to begin your career. In 2016, Brownsville was named the 13th best city in the United States in terms of skin care and health. However, there is still a need for good estheticians—the area has a climate that's tough on the skin and relatively few skin care professionals. The other cities have similar climate challenges. This is where estheticians come in: They mitigate the effects of weather on people's skin.

As of 2019, estheticians in McAllen made a mean salary of $35,350 per year ($16.99 per hour); Weslaco is in the same county but doesn't publish separate data. This information is also unavailable for the Harlingen-Brownsville area; however, statewide, the mean salary that year was $37,180 ($17.87). Texas expects esthetician jobs to grow by 20% between 2016 and 2026, which is nearly double the national expectation.

To earn esthetics licensure in Texas, you must complete 750 hours of training and pass two exams. The Harlingen, Weslaco, Brownsville, and McAllen area schools below can all help you on your way.
