IN MY EXPERIENCE OF BEING AN ESTHETICIAN I HAVE NOTICED THAT SOME CLIENTS WERE GOING FROM ONE SPA TO ANOTHER TRYING TO FIND THAT PERFECT ESTHETICIAN. WHAT MAKES THIS PROCESS TOUGH IS THE FACT THAT ESTHETICS IS VERY SUBJECTIVE. EACH ESTHETICIAN HAS CERTAIN SPECIALTIES AND STRENGTHS AND NOT EVERY ESTHETICIAN DOES ONE SERVICE THE SAME. SO HOW DO YOU, AS A CONSUMER CHOOSE? I HAVE COME UP WITHA FEW TIPS TO HELP YOU DECIDE AND WAYS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO FIND YOUR PERFECT ESTHETICIAN:
STEP 1: RESEARCH
Today in the days of research, social media and search engines make it so much easier to find what you're looking for. Search engines can narrow down your location and need, but you still need to be specific when looking for that perfect Esthetician . Be specific about what you are wanting. Look up "Esthetician dark spots, Columbia SC" instead of just "Esthetician Columbia SC". Being specific with your search will cut out what you're not looking for but the Esty that may pop up most likely does so much more than just what you narrowed your search down to.
Reviews are also very important. When clients leave reviews for us and our businesses, it means so much more than a cash tip. Reviews help our business get more views and let possible clients know what we are about.
Step 2: PERSONALITY
Personality is not something that is taught. A great personality is something you're born with. Just like in normal human interactions, personalities tend to lean more towards like-minded personalities. Being an esthetician means we have to be a listeners, chemist, communicator, and some one that can take things with a thick skin. Estheticians are like a great pair of jeans...we work great for some, but may not work for others. That is perfectly fine.
Step 3: TECHNIQUE
Estheticians work hard to perfect their craft. Technique is as unique to each esty as a fingerprint. Some may be of a softer touch while others are more firm. Some take their time while others get it done quick. Find what works for you.
Step 4: COMMUNICATION
We all know that the more we know, the easier a choice is to make. When choosing an Esty talk to them. Attempt to find out about their practice. This can be done before ever stepping in to their treatment room. If an Esty sounds great on the phone, doesn't mean they will preform up to the standards you set. The line of communication must continue through the entire process. Word-of-mouth is a great way to find the Esty of your dreams. If people are talking about this Esty on the streets then there's a fabulous chance that this Esty will fulfill your needs.
Looking for your perfect Esty may take time, but it will be 100% worth it in the long run. Don't be afraid to be honest with your Esty and don't be afraid to let them know you're shopping around and what standards you hold. Once you find YOUR Esty, your life will be changed forever...not to mention your SKIN.
