Stand Out and Succeed in a Billion Dollar Beauty Industry

Published in Dermascope Magazine, June 2017

by Annette Hanson, founder and President of Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics

After graduating from beauty school, many people are left wondering: now what? They can do facials, waxing, and make-up treatments in their sleep; now they need a job!

Be ready to dazzle the interviewer on the day of the interview. Interviewees should show up prepared, dressed professionally, and leave the potential employer with such a great impression that he or she will already be planning their work schedule. Graduates should remember that they are looking for a career in a prestigious industry and they need to set themselves apart from the thousands of aestheticians lining up to get a job. There are five A’s candidates for a job need to have under their belt to set them apart from the rest: attitude, attendance, availability, appearance, and aspiration. If they can model themselves with these characteristics, success will ensue.

Attitude

A smile goes a long way. Who wants to hire a Debbie Downer? The aesthetician’s job is to educate clients and make them feel good in their own skin. This business is all about customer service. If the graduate’s phone is constantly in their hand and they cannot devote 60 minutes of undivided attention to their client, the boss will go to the next graduate who can. No one wants to hire a diva or a princess. Spas are looking for teamwork, cooperation, and likability.

Attendance

Is the graduate always running in at the last second, stressed, or do they give themselves enough time to come in early to prepare their room? Lateness will set them back, make them anxious, and destroy their day. Graduates will need to make sure their steamer works and that they have the appropriate products they need for the treatments that they are scheduled to perform.

Availability

During the job interview, if the graduate’s potential employer hands them a schedule that conflicts with their fitness routine, party plans, or sleep schedule, they should re-evaluate if they want that job because if they do, they better become available! It is better for graduates to say “yes” and figure out their life schedule later. They may not get that second chance.

Appearance

Dress for success! Success means a polished look from head to toe. Good grooming and personal hygiene go a long way. A clean uniform, manicured nails, and neat hair is only the beginning. Graduates also need to practice good skin care habits and ensure they do what they are telling their clients to do! Talk the talk and walk the walk.

Aspiration

Recent skin care graduates can strive to be the boss and own their own business one day. That is great, but do they know how? They are much better off devoting themselves to a new job, getting promoted, and learning everything they can from their employer. If their goal is to create their own skin care line or open their own spa, they should remember that they must have ample savings behind them. No entrepreneur takes a salary check for a minimum of two years.

Professionals must always be 100% confident in their skills. Take continuing education courses or refresher courses, attend tradeshows, and read industry articles and magazines! Like every great industry professional out there, recent graduates need to keep up with new developments, products, services, and ways to provide great experiences. If they do not, there are others out there who will – and will win.

Annette Hanson is the founder of Atelier Esthétique® Institute, a New York State licensing esthetics school, postgraduate facility, and the first accredited internationally recognized U.S. member of the International Therapy Examination Council (ITEC). The school first opened in New York City in 1985.

Her professional experience in skin care spans more than 30 years as an esthetician, body therapist, salon manager, educator, and spa consultant for some of the most prestigious spas and salons in the United States. Annette created two new treatment lines—Simple Solutions® with GHK Copper Peptide Technology and AquaSanté® Spa Products from France.

Perfect Make-Up (Infographic)

The Business of Waxing (published at Dermascope Magazine)

NOTE: This article appeared in Dermascope Magazine, February 2017, and was written by Annette Hanson, Founder and President of Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics.

Waxing is one of the most sought-after services in the beauty industry. There are specialized waxing facilities across the country to meet the growing demands.

Suitable for just about everyone, both young and old, women and men, are regularly booking waxing appointments because it has become a lifestyle and part of people’s grooming routine. The major benefit of waxing is the silky, smooth feeling that is often experienced for close to a month; it takes longer for the hair to grow back and it grows back finer with no razor stubble.

However, when done incorrectly, waxing can be a nightmare, causing anything from infections and ingrown hairs to blisters, burns, and even missing skin!

Clients no longer squeeze in a quick eyebrow wax after a manicure. Waxing is no longer a mere afterthought – it is a multimillion dollar industry. Appointments are now being made weeks in advance at top-notch centers that offer only waxing services. The shift to qualified, licensed wax experts who wear protective gloves and keep their rooms meticulously clean is the new norm. Waxing services survived the recession and are no longer reserved to one room in the back of a salon.

Stand-alone wax studios, which are equipped with multiple rooms and online booking, are an emerging phenomenon. How can professionals own a thriving business in waxing?

Take a look at European Wax Center, recognized as the fastest-growing company in the beauty services category, with now close to 580 centers nationwide.

Their concept was started in 2004 by two brothers – David and Joshua Coba – in a second generation, family-owned salon. They introduced a membership program, in which frequent clients would pay for a package fee of three or six services or a yearly fee to receive unlimited waxing services. Currently, European Wax Center has evolved to a multi-location corporate entity with elite features such as a centralized guest reservation center, its own formulated hard wax, and a licensed in-house education staff.

In order to open a business, professionals need a high-quality business plan and have a thorough understanding of the financial basics involved. They should also investigate their competitors in the area, understand their strengths and weaknesses, and be sure to speak to those already in the business.

Consider buying an established waxing hair removal business that has reliable revenue streams and loyal client bases. If the professional does their research, they will see that there are a number of waxing-only salons across the country.

Even though franchising is not right for every entrepreneur, many startup owners find that a franchise offers the resources and behind-the-scenes support they need to be on solid footing. There will be an initial franchise fee, which grants the professional the license to run a business under the company name.

The key to business success is dedication, extensive training, excellent customer service, and a great team.

Atelier Graduate Elizabeth Taylor Awarded Beauty Changes Lives 2016 Esthetics Scholarship

“I fell in love with holistic skincare, after discovering the healing magic in plants. I thought that I was alone in the world with skin so dry and sensitive that I can’t even use Dove soap. Beginning with just a few products that I formulated, designed, and manufactured, I opened a boutique called True Beauty Brooklyn dedicated to all natural and organic skincare. Over the past three years, I have built a clientele of people who search us out because they too thought that they were alone in the world, desperately searching for products without scary ingredients and that can really heal their skin. Some of our clients have had recent cancer scares and are completely ridding their lives of chemicals. Others suffer from psoriasis, eczema or rosacea, and everything they have ever tried before has just made things worse.

Some are pregnant and are scared to use chemicals because their unborn child will absorb whatever is entering their bodies. I love that every day I get out of bed to educate people about my passion, and plant seeds of passion in them. It is time to take my passion and career to the next level. I must obtain my esthetics license to become a professional skincare expert and to be able to help my clients on a broader scale and to help to grow the Green Beauty Community.”
