Job Outlook Increase
Between 2016 - 2026

The field of skin care has plenty of career options for new esthetics professionals. Utah has plenty of sports resorts that make full use of the region's mountains, and these resorts often have on-site spas that help tourists unwind from a long day of skiing or hiking. In major cities, you may help clients get beautiful skin at a day spa or hair salon. Each day may bring new client requests your way, from age-defying skin treatments and color-correcting facials to clinical skin peels and mineral makeup. By the year 2026, job openings for Utah skin care specialists are expected to increase 35% (O*Net, 2019). The average salary for a Utah skin care specialist is $32,790 per year (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2019).

Working as an Esthetician

A variety of job options exist for a Utah esthetician. The first, and perhaps most popular option, is to work in a salon and spa. However, an esthetician also has the option of working in a skin care clinic with those exclusively interested in the services of a trained esthetician. Job growth for Utah estheticians is on the rise. The job outlook is optimistic.

Program: Cosmetology

WHY COLLECTIV? BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND.... Why have you chosen cosmetology as a career? Ask yourself why you are becoming a cosmetologist/hairdresser. Is it to be a hairdresser in the salon, fashion, WHY COLLECTIV? BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND.... Why have you chosen cosmetology as a career? Ask yourself why you are becoming a cosmetologist/hairdresser. Is it to be a hairdresser in the salon, fashion, or film industry, or is it something else?  During your first year as a professional, what is going to be THE most valuable aspect of everything you learn in school? This is what you should take into consideration when choosing the right school for you. If you chose salon, fashion, or film industry, then you're going to love COLLECTIV Academy! We are for the serious-minded student who wants to grow artistically. In our experience, the number one complaint of students graduating from cosmetology school is a lack of confidence. You have to consider that without being able to produce a WELL executed cut, color, or style, confidence in other areas will be harder to find. At COLLECTIV Academy, we specialize in what we believe is going to give you the most confidence; that is in-depth cutting, coloring, and styling techniques that take you beyond the basics, while still exposing our students to all the disciplines of cosmetology. We place high importance on developing your soft skills such as customer service, retailing, and marketing. We know that an in-depth understanding of technique in cutting, coloring, and styling is going to be the most valuable tool to help you deliver well-executed services in the salon so that clients return to you. Once you're confident with your technique, you're able to effortlessly combine your customer service skills and extend your focus on additional services; that's the confidence we believe in at COLLECTIV Academy.   s.t.e.p. up! BEGIN YOUR CAREER Never worry about unemployment again. In order to achieve a successful career in hairdressing, you need to acquire the right tools; we help you do this by stepping up to go beyond expectations. You will learn to STEP UP in an artistic trade that has no limits to what you can experience. It's diverse and dynamic in what you can accomplish. STYLE It's one thing to learn technique; it's another to develop a smooth style in your techniques that shows you know what you're doing. In order to become a top hairdresser, future educator, or platform artist, you must develop style. The love is in the details, and we help you focus on the details. TECHNIQUE You will learn a language and method, giving you a deeper understanding of the education that takes place between you and the instructors. You will walk away, not mimicking haircuts and color, but understanding the "how and why." Our style is classic techniques with a current, modern tone that, when applied, creates success behind the chair. ETIQUETTE We teach business etiquette for an excellent customer experience. After all, a client may not detect the difference between a "good" or "great" technical service, however they do know the difference when it comes to their experience. It can make or break you in this business. PERSONAL BRANDING In the world of social media, most individuals develop a personal brand, whether by accident or design. Branding is essential to how fast you build your business and how loyal your customers become. We start with how to develop your personal brand and how to engage that brand in marketing and social media. These principals can be taken into building your own business when you're ready. Take control of your brand! COLLECTIV ACADEMY OFFERS A WORLD CLASS PROGRAM It's imperative to us that our students understand the importance of being confident with their skill sets, as this is what makes them sought after by clients and top professionals in any market, anywhere. > Begin by receiving a professional kit of tools that you can be proud to start your career with. > Our knowledgeable instructors will lead your education utilizing books, videos, demonstrations, and interactive activities. > Our online educational component lets you learn outside of the program at your convenience.
