The field of esthetics is a growing industry and is a great career path to take. Get the education you need to become a successful addition to the beauty industry. We get it, starting anything new can feel both exciting and intimidating at first, but that is why we have come up with the perfect guide to help you get started. Here are 5 things to do before your first day in our esthetics program at Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare.
1.) Do Your Research
The more you know about your beauty school, the more prepared you can feel for classes to start. It’s better to know what to expect, that way you can feel less nervous and more confident.The first day of school is the most important, because it sets the pace for the rest of the school year and determines your success as an esthetician. That is why it’s so important to do your research and know what the school has to offer. Here are a few things to keep in mind when doing research:
Visit the School’s Website
A beauty school’s site can educate you on everything you need to know about financial aid, the programs, employment opportunities, curriculum, staff, and more to help you feel more prepared for your first day of classes. Visit our site to learn more about who we are and what you can expect when you are enrolled in our programs.
Also, be sure to check out our blogs. This is a great way to learn more about our programs and how we help students pursue their passions for skincare.
Read the Student Handbook
The student handbook offers even more information and goes into more detail than a website. Download our student handbook to learn more about the rules on dress code, graduation requirements, Covid-19 guidelines, and more!
Discover What Programs Are Offered

Where Is the Campus Located?
Don’t look up your school’s location last minute. The last thing you want on your first day is to feel stressed or rushed when trying to find your school. You definitely don’t want to be late on the first day. Give yourself plenty of time to prepare for the commute and leave on time so you are sure to find your classes.
Skinworks School of Advanced Skincare is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. SLC traffic can get pretty crazy, so be sure to leave at a time where you wont get stuck in traffic.
2.) Familiarize Yourself With the Curriculum
As we had mentioned earlier, it’s important to know what programs your school of choice has to offer, to make sure it meets your needs. If you are more interested in learning about eyelash extensions or about the med spa industry, then you are going to want to enroll in a program that offers these interests.
3.) Contact the Admissions Team
The admissions team is your best resource for additional information and asking questions. They can guide you through preparing for your first day of school. Write down your questions so you are sure to not miss any.

5.) Understand Your State’s Licensing
At the end of your esthetician program, you are expected to take the state licensing exam. Find a school that teaches you the information you need to prepare to sit for the exam. It is important you know what is required of your state and to keep this in mind when you first start beauty school. That way you can head in the right direction for your licensing process.
