After completing this program, graduates will be able to:

  • Express creativity within the bounds of technical skill in safety, sanitation and health factors when working with skin, make-up, superfluous hair removal, and salon management.
  • Utilize basic skills, safety, and proper work habits needed for employment in the field of Esthetics.
  • Utilize personal and professional safety, proper work habits, and desirable attitudes necessary for entry level positions in Esthetician.

The Esthetician program provides the student with the opportunity to express creativity within the bounds of technical skill in safety, sanitation and health factors when working with skin, make-up, and salon management. The objective of this program is to provide students with the instruction and practice needed to gain licensure as an esthetician through TDLR. The program includes training in basic skills, safety, and the proper work habits needed for employment.

The curriculum for this program conforms to the requirements established and monitored by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR) and is designed to prepare the student to gain licensure from TDLR by taking and passing the state examination. The courses include instruction in cleansing, stimulating, or massaging a person’s scalp, face, neck, shoulders, or arms, beautifying a person’s face, neck, shoulders, or arms using a cosmetic preparation, antiseptic, tonic, lotion, powder, oil, clay, cream, or appliance, administering facial treatments, removing superfluous hair, and other selected topics.  Clinic work allows the student hands-on application and practice of newly learned skills while under the supervision of an experienced Instructor. Successful completion of this course does not automatically guarantee state licensure. The graduate must take and pass state-administered examinations.

Upon successfully passing written and practical examinations administered by TDLR, graduates may seek entry-level employment as an esthetician in a salon or spa environment.

Career opportunities may include, but are not limited to, esthetician, skincare specialist, make-up artist, and facial product salesperson.
