Student Spotlight: Meet the Aesthetician’s

There is something about self-care that is so satisfying. One important form of self-care is proper skincare, however, taking time out of your busy schedule to really focus on the important things like yourself and your skin care routine can be challenging. Your skin deserves to become part of your routine and your habits that make up your day- to-day lives and our Aesthetic students can help you with just that!!

 

What does an Aesthetic student do?

Aesthetic student is considered an Aesthetician. Aestheticians are specialists in the cleansing, beautification and preservation of the health of skin on the entire body including the face and neck. Our Aesthetics program teaches the latest techniques to purifying, balancing and renewing the skin as well as the artistry of make-up application. Because TSPA is proud to be a Bioelements Partner School we also offer a curriculum that is infused with the latest technical training from the industry leader in skincare.

 

What Types of Treatments do Student Aestheticians Perform?

Our Student Aestheticians spend 19 weeks being intensely trained on a number of specialized techniques for skin analysis to make sure that they are able to help their clients with a wide range of needs. Before any treatment is performed on a guest the student sits down with their guest and does a consultation. The consultation is to ensure that the student is getting to know the guest and their skin type so the right products are used for the end goal.

Some services that are our Aesthetic students preform but are not limited to:

* Facials

* Back Facials

* Chemical Peels

* Body Waxing

* Eye Lash Extensions

* Make-up Applications

 

Meet Our Aesthetic Students:

Libby- “Hi! I’m Libby. I’m a dog and cat mom who has always had a love for skin. One day, I was doing a mask and thought, “Hey! Why don’t I do this for a living?” I have a customer service background and can’t wait to add those skills to the ones that I have acquired here at TSPA! I think after graduation I can definitely see myself in a spa setting in the area. Hope to meet you soon!”

 

Maria-My love for being an aesthetician began in 8th grade when I had terrible acne problems and I wanted to do something about it, that’s when I really got into skin care products! You can say I’m definitely a skin care junkie! I’m here at The Salon Professional Academy of Appleton to improve my knowledge more and grow more with the other aesthetician students. It is a very emotionally rewarding profession making people feel good, and in turn it makes me feel good! It really is happiness for all!!  I love what I do and it shows!”

 

Stephanie-Hi, I am Stephanie, yooper born and raised. I have always loved makeup but since great makeup starts with great skin, I developed a passion for both and I wanted to make this a career path that I could excel in. I want to help everyone look and feel their best because when you look good, you feel good and that happiness is contagious.”

 

Erica-My name is Erica and helping others to feel beautiful has always been a passion of mine. I grew up in San Paulo, Brazil before moving to the United States. Prior to pursuing my dreams of becoming an aesthetician, I stayed home to raise my two beautiful children. My favorite part of becoming an aesthetician is to help others feel confident with their skin, but hope to touch their soul as well!

Learn Better, Earn Better, Live Better.

Is It Time To Make A Career Change?

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Sadly, this old cliché only serves to hold many people back from following their dreams. After all, it doesn’t matter how old a person is. Being alive means that we are constantly changing and growing, and it’s the pursuit of new goals that keeps us thriving. And excited about getting out of bed in the morning.

If you’ve dreamed of studying cosmetology because you love working with hair, skin and nails, or maybe an aesthetician because you love beauty, makeup and skincare, what’s stopping you from going to beauty school? If you think that age is a problem, you have another thing coming. Cosmetology is a field where people of all ages can excel. All that matters is that you’re a people person who loves helping others feel good about themselves through hair styling, makeup, nails, skin care or related areas.

Here are a handful of reasons why when you are older, you can and should still attend beauty school:

Life Experience

It’s no secret that hair stylists and estheticians have to be able to talk to people. They need to know how to read and adapt to the personalities of their clients. And the older a person is, the more experience they have with this. Just like a bartender, a cosmetologist can become a therapist of sorts, and the more they can relate to others and maybe even offer sage advice, the better. This creates rapport and client loyalty.

Greater Discipline and Drive

Older students understand how important it is to commit to their selected course of study. Especially if they’ve experienced any dissatisfaction in earlier jobs. And let’s face it, if a person is considering starting a career in cosmetology at this stage of their life, it’s not because they’re happy in their current employment. So an older student is more likely to be successful, both in school and in their career.

More Settled in Life

Often, young people start going to school but then “life happens.” They get married, or drop out to get a full-time job because they need more money right away, or they have a baby and their priorities shift. But older students are more likely to be settled down. They’re well enough established in their lives to dedicate the time and energy to a new career endeavor.

Age is Just a Number!

Fact is, except for a very few examples, there’s no such thing as “too old.” More people every day are changing their lives and fulfilling their dreams. We all owe ourselves the favor of going for whatever it is that will enrich our lives, no matter what our age.
