Esthetician Schools in New Jersey

At esthetician schools in NJ, students take the first steps towards their new careers as skin care specialists. But, as Jolie Beauty Academy instructor Madaline Barris points out, their esthetics education is just the beginning. “In a career such as esthetics that is constantly growing and changing, your beauty school education is just the beginning. It’s definitely not the end of your education when you graduate.”

At Jolie, Barris aims to give students in the esthetics program the very best start to their careers through hands on, one-on-one instruction in the skin care specialty. ‘I teach from my heart,” she said. To see students come into my classroom and to watch their advancement is a very special thing for me. Then to see those same students thriving in the industry 15 years later, “it’s so gratifying.”

The Elements of an Esthetics Program

The goal of the esthetics program at Jolie, and other esthetician schools in NJ, is to prepare students for state licensure — a necessary requirement for anyone wishing to practice esthetics in the state. To prepare graduates for the exam, schools must give students a solid foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of the skin care specialty. Some important topics covered at esthetician schools in NJ include:

  • Skin diseases and disorders
  • Skin physiology
  • Facial treatment benefits
  • Elements of a basic facial
  • Treatments for different skin conditions
  • Men’s skin care
  • Chemical exfoliation
  • Facial massage
  • Hair removal
  • Makeup

These areas of the skin care specialty are taught through a combination of classroom and hands-on training. Students spend a great deal of time engaged in hands-on learning while in the esthetics program, with senior students spending about five hours a day working on clients, mannequins and their fellow students. “It’s the best way to learn and experience different aspects of the career,” Barris said.
