The Esthetics program provides students with the skills and experience required to be an integrated and professional esthetician. Beautification of the body is achieved through treatments to provide professional care of skin, hands and feet, and the use of cosmetic products. This program covers a variety of esthetics practices such as manicures, pedicures, facial and body treatments, waxing and eyebrow tinting, makeup artistry, auricular therapies, and more.
