School Accreditation

You must attend a school that is approved by your state to provide training in the discipline you want to practice. Check with the school and the state board to be sure that your program of study will prepare you for any applicable state licensure.

Over 4300 estheticians work in the Golden State, and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates this number will grow by 25 percent by 2020.

California Esthetician Licensing Requirements

The California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology regulates estheticians in the state. They have established two methods to obtain an esthetician license. Candidates can either complete 600 hours in a classroom program, or 1200 hours as an apprentice of a licensed esthetician. With either method, students will learn how to:

– Analyze skin
– Recommend skin care treatments
– Perform skin care regimens
– Use hair removal techniques on clients
– Apply cosmetics
– Maintain good sanitation and hygiene in the salon

When students have finished their training, they must pass both a written and a practical examination. The written test is 100 multiple-choice questions. During the practical exam, students perform basic skills techniques on manikin heads, provided by the student. Students demonstrate disinfection and sanitation, consumer safety, set up of their equipment and supplies, preparation of the manikin, and the student’s ability to perform the procedures.
