The Formula for Success in Esthetics and Spa Operations

The cosmetics, esthetics and spa industry is thriving because people are looking to reduce stress and practice self-care. A successful career in esthetics and spa management is a mix of personal passion and the right education.

How do you know if you’re the right fit for this career?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all personality for professionals in the esthetics and spa industry. Our successful graduates are all unique and excel in different aspects of the industry. Here are a few general questions to ask yourself:
  • Am I outgoing?
  • Am I creative?
  • Do I have an interest in health and beauty?
  • Working with people?
  • Working with my hands?

If you already have a passion for beauty, wellness, and helping others, then you’re off to a great start! There are, however, two addition must-haves in order to ensure success in the esthetics field: practical techniques and business management skills. This is why an education at Trillium College will set you apart from the dreamers and the doers.

Education Must-Have #1: Practical Techniques

This is the hands-on aspect of an esthetics and spa course. This part of a program is where students learn the skills required for:

  • Manicures
  • Pedicures
  • Applying cosmetics
  • Facials
  • Spa and body treatments
  • Eyebrow waxing
  • Body hair removal

Students should also learn how to customize treatments to match specific client needs. For maximum learning, these practical techniques should then be practised. At Trillium College, all students are given the opportunity to hone their skills on real clients in the public student clinic.

Education Must-Have #2: Business Management Skills

Some programs focus solely on industry techniques, but the Advanced Esthetic and Spa Management program at Trillium College also provides business management training.

Courses in business management are essential in preparing students to succeed in the beauty and wellness industry. Learning about marketing, finance and other parts of business management equips Trillium College graduates to take on a management role or even start their own business.

Consequently, without proper business training, students could be prepared to perform treatments on clients but not know how to find clients. They may not know how to manage inventory and track finances in order to be profitable.

Business management training is essential for anyone who wants to have an exciting and lucrative career in this industry. For this reason, Trillium College has worked to develop and include courses on Spa Operations and Management, Ethics and Professionalism and Communication Skills in our diploma program.
