  • I chose Atelier Esthetique because of their rating online. A past employee of mine also attended Atelier Esthetique and graduated and is currently working at a spa. The education at this school is great.

  • Studying esthetics almost 10 years ago was the best decision of my life! I had been practicing law for 12 years, but I was very unhappy. So, I kept my job and started the part-time evening program to pursue my passion for skin care. I am currently in my 8th year of business as the owner of a top laser center in Midtown Manhattan.

  • I chose Atelier Esthetique because of their close relationship with European Wax Centers. I also liked that there was a two-week intensive New York State waxing license program. Someone I know who took this class at Atelier Esthetique and recommended it to me.
