Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Joanna Collado

joann-collado“I chose Atelier Esthetique because of its credibility and reputation. Ms. Hanson is one of the most respected people in the esthetics industry. She was the first person to instruct others on the use of glycolic acid in the U.S., a breakthrough that is still recognized today. I am honored to learn from her as well as her talented staff.

I plan on combining the esthetics skills I learn at Atelier Esthetique with my dermatology training. My ultimate goal is to transform the practice I currently run into a medi-spa and offer a wide range of functional medical beauty services.”

Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Sierra Winfrey

400x481-sierra-winfrey“After graduating from High School I decided I wanted to explore a career in the skin care industry. I found Atelier Esthetique’s website, liked everything I saw, and then scheduled a visit and tour of the school.

I don’t live in New York City but decided to move here for the duration of the 600-Hour licensing program.

Ms. Hanson is very respected in the skin care industry and she’s always looking out for the best interest of her students.

After I get my New York State Esthetician’s license I’d like to create a skin care product line and maybe someday open my own destination spa!”

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

regina-01The weather is getting warmer! You know what that means – a glass of Rose at a café, picnics, outdoor jogs – a lot of fun in the sun.

Beauty Tip: lather on the sunscreen before you head outdoors – it can also save your life.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. It is estimated that one person dies from melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – every hour.

That golden bronze look we all love is actually a fight or flight response from our bodies. Ultraviolet rays from the sun reach the inner layers of skin. This produces more melanin, or skin pigment, making the outer layer tan or sometimes red.

These color changes are a response to injury. Good news: Skin cancer is curable if diagnosed and treated early. So check those spots!

The average person has between 10 and 40 moles on their body. It’s important to have your Doctor perform a full-body skin exam, especially if something just doesn’t look or feel right.

Use the A-B-C-D-E method to remember what to check for:

  • “A” stands for asymmetrical. Does the mole or spot have an irregular shape with two parts that look very different?
  • “B” stands for border. Is the border irregular or jagged?
  • “C” is for color. Is the color uneven?
  • “D” is for diameter. Is the mole or spot larger than the size of a pea?
  • “E” is for evolving. Has the mole or spot changed during the past few weeks or months?

These tips will save your life!

So, in between doctor’s visits check yourself and keep an eye out for any new moles.

Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Nancy Marie Pinho

nancy-marie-pinho-01“Upon researching schools to attend, Atelier Esthetique caught my eye because of their amazing reviews. The staff and owner Annette Hanson are by far the most helpful, intelligent, and successful women I have encountered in a learning establishment.

I was lucky enough to take the full-time day 600-Hour New York State Esthetician licensing program in the 4 months time, which was  and still is an amazing journey that no other school provides.

The opportunities for success are endless in the skin care industry long term, I know I will open my own spa and provide the best quality services and products for my clients. Short term I would like to work along side a doctor or dermatologist at a medical spa!”

Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Paloma Bassani

angela-bassani-02“A few years ago I started developing my passion for all things Beauty, starting with makeup. I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to take, and began by taking a makeup course at another school for esthetics. When I finally decided I wanted to pursue a career as an Esthetician, I did my research and found out about Atelier Esthetique.

Even though I already had a credit elsewhere, I chose to attend this school because I was very impressed with Ms. Hanson’s history and the success rate of her school and alumni.

After being here for several months I can say that I do not regret my decision. My classmates and teachers are WONDERFUL! I have met so many great people and learned so much valuable information. I really feel I am getting the best education I can get in order to be successful out in the real world.

I am confident that I will be a successful Esthetician once I graduate, and it’s thanks to my time here at Atelier Esthetique.”

Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Ruth Riviere


“I came to the school’s open house with a friend. I came with my friend as moral support. I knew nothing about world of esthetics. But after speaking with Ms. Hanson, Regina, Ms. S. and other faculty and staff, I was interested in the vast opportunities esthetics could offer.

As a Registered Nurse, I was also interested in the field of medical esthetics. I truly believe that it was my destiny to apply to the school and attend Atelier Esthetique. I have been blessed by meeting some wonderful women that will be my lifelong friends and blessed by being taught by some of the best instructors in esthetics. Sometimes the road traveled is not the road seen from the highway.

My enrollment at Atelier Esthetique was not a road I could have ever foreseen, however, the road ahead is full of possibilities. And for that, I thank my dear friend that I brought along with me, Ms. Annette Hanson, and all the great instructors and staff of Atelier Esthetique.”

Why I Chose Atelier Esthetique – Cherrie Sludock

400x481-cherrie-sludock-may-2016“If you are interested in a career in esthetics, there is nowhere else to go but Atelier Esthetique. I researched esthetics programs for over a year before I settled on Atelier, and I travel from Connecticut to New York every weekend in order to attend this prestigious school. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.”

“Under the guidance of the phenomenal instructors, I’ve gained confidence each week and am sure that when I graduate, I will be a better esthetician than someone who attended a program elsewhere. The instructors go above and beyond to ensure that my classmates and I are equipped with the knowledge we will need to be New York’s best estheticians. I cannot wait to graduate and get a job where I can use the skills that I know I could not have learned elsewhere.”
