Beauty realm is no longer what it used to be. The days of just walking into a barber shop and getting a trim and a shave are long gone. Today, being a hairstylist or medical esthetician is a demanding and challenging career that takes design, art and creativity to a whole new level. The scope for employment in beauty industry is enormous.

I had the most amazing esthetician instructor. She truly took the time to help me with everything. She really cared about my grades, my future, and what I needed to do to make it to my goal. She is the best teacher I ever had. I wouldnâ€™t have made it, if it wasnâ€™t for her.â€
