An esthetician’s wages will vary depending on several factors. These factors might include the area in which you work, whether or not you will be commission based or salaried, and your education and industry experience and client base.
As a newly licensed esthetician, you can expect to start at a lower wage, and gain higher wages as you gain more experience. By making the right education choice and attending a competitive esthetician program you can improve your chances for higher wages by securing employment with an elite salon, spa or medical practice.
As with any career, the longer you are employed by any one employer, the higher your wages will be. This is especially true for professional estheticians; generally our income is dependant on a loyal clientele.
