About Our Esthiology Program and Curriculum

The 600-hour esthiology program at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes may seem similar to other esthetician programs. However, it encompasses plant-based Aveda products and Earth-friendly practices to help clients look and feel their best. Esthiology involves skin care for the whole body, including the face and nails.

Esthiology training prepares students for successful careers as estheticians by providing them with a mix of in-classroom instruction and hands-on practice. Students get practice performing services on real clients and are supervised by instructors. This provides them with invaluable experience they can’t get elsewhere. The esthiology curriculum includes:

  • Facials and Masks
  • Facial Massage
  • Skin Treatments
  • Detoxification Massage for Lymphatic Drainage
  • Waxing and Hair Removal
  • Makeup Application
  • Eyebrow Lamination
  • Eyelash Lift
  • Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting
  • Manicures and Pedicures (Provo campus only)
  • Money by Qnity – Career and Financial Planning  
  • Business Building 
  • Social Media and Marketing 
  • Well-Being and Self Care

This program prepares aspiring estheticians to become licensed and certified (if desired). Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes also offers a master esthiology program at our campus in Provo that is focused on advanced skincare and medical spa techniques.

Esthiology Career Opportunities

One benefit of becoming an esthetician is that there are many different specialties you can focus on. You can decide whether you want to offer only one service or provide multiple services. Estheticians also have a range of work environments to choose from, including salons, spas, resorts, hotels, medical offices, and beauty retailers.

There are several career opportunities to pursue once you’re licensed as an esthetician. Consider the following:

  • Makeup artist: Enhances clients’ features with makeup, including brow and lash tints, henna, and traditional makeup applications.
  • Facialist: Performs customized skin care treatments based on a client’s skin needs, whether it be hyperpigmentation, acne, or wrinkles.
  • Sales representative: Visits salons, spas, and beauty stores to entice them to sell or use your brand’s products.
  • Salon owner: Operates a salon, oversees other stylists, interacts with clients, and completes other daily duties to keep the business running.
  • Nail technician: Performs manicures, pedicures, nail extensions, gel nails, and more in salons and spas.
  • Eyelash technician: Uses eyelash extensions or lash lifts to enhance a client’s eyelashes.
  • Hair removal specialist: Uses wax, threading, or sugaring to remove unwanted hair from various body areas.
  • Brand ambassador/influencer: Shares content and information about beauty brands, products, and more.

The job outlook for estheticians is strong. More people are taking better care of their skin, whether to reduce the effects of aging, sun damage, or other reasons. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of skin care specialists is projected to grow 9% through 2032, much faster than the average for all occupations.
