Career Paths for skin care professionals graphic

If you’re interested in skin care, ready to join the beauty industry, and are passionate about helping people look and feel their best, you should consider a career as a skin care professional. With  hands-on training in a Skin Care Specialty Program from an accredited school, like Shore Beauty School, you’ll have an opportunity to explore various career paths available to use the skills you learn in facial massage and treatments, makeup techniques, and body treatments. Here are possible career paths you can consider to get you started.

Facial and Skin Care Specialist

Skin care specialists give facials, full-body treatments, head and neck massages, as well as exfoliating treatments like masks, peels, and scrubs. They may also apply make-up and teach clients how to best care for their skin. Facial and skin care specialists typically work in spas or salons.

Makeup Artist

Makeup artists help people look their best for weddings, proms, fashion shows, photography sessions, galas, and other special events. They can also look to careers in the theatrical or film makeup industry, sometimes using special effects, prosthetics and more to create special characters.


Aestheticians understand different skin types, recognize common skin issues, and provide a range of treatments for their clients including facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, light treatments and more. These skin care treatments can address different issues such as aging skin, acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and redness. Aestheticians often work in med spas or wellness facilities, as well as regular salons and spas.

Skin Care Product Sales

A skin care sales representative works for a specific skin care brand, store, or a product manufacturer, and works directly with potential customers to help drive sales. If you work in skin care sales, you need to be outgoing, fully understand the products you’re selling, know what works best for different skin types, and be able to provide helpful advice and recommendations. You may sell products directly to consumers, or to aestheticians, dermatologists, and retail stores and salons.

Skin Care Instructor

Once you’ve received the proper training in skin care services and have gained some real-world experience, you may want to share your skills and knowledge with students as a skin care instructor for a beauty school like Shore. It can be very satisfying to see people you’ve mentored become the next generation of skin care professionals.

Lobs & Bobs

Face-framing bobs, which are usually around chin length and long bobs, also called lobs are above or at your shoulders, are always a popular choice come Fall. You can cut down on some of your length if it is damaged or weighing you down, save time on maintenance, and look stylish and chic all at once! Often paired with curtain bangs and featuring textured waves, lobs and bobs are on trend and effortless.

70’s Layers

This Fall is all about layers and texture and it’s really taking us back to the 1970s! It is amazing how styles come back and become trending again years later. Check out some old pics of celebrities that have rocked this retro style, like Farrah Fawcett or Goldie Hawn with their big hair and feathered layers.

Mixies & Bixies

For those who really want a change, there are now two different takes on the popular pixie cut. The Mixie is part pixie, part mullet, which is shorter in the front, party in the back. The Bixie is part pixie, part bob with longer layers that frame the face.

Birkin Bangs

While curtain bangs are still having a moment, Birkin Bangs are hot for Fall. Inspired by Jane Birkin, a 60s style icon who lived in Paris, these chic, effortless and breezy bangs fall just above or below your brows and are cut softly with no sharp line.

Butterfly Cut

The butterfly haircut, which has gone viral on TikTok, is typically done on longer hair and features lots of blended layers and feathering. Shorter layers on the top of the head, through the crown, and around the face add lots of volume to this style. The name comes from the idea that this trending styles somewhat resembles butterfly wings.
