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).

Job growth for Utah estheticians is on the rise. The job outlook is optimistic.
