Be prepared to put customers’ minds at ease by staying on top of product interactions and the latest products and techniques for all skin types.

Check the Appointment Calendar Every esthetician should begin their day by reviewing their appointment schedule and ensuring they know which clients are coming into the spa, and what services they’ll need. Many skin care specialists use the free time between clients to call and remind future appointments that they’re scheduled in the near future, which greatly reduces no-shows. Knowing the itinerary for the day can be very helpful for the skin care expert to mentally prepare. Prepare the Office Next, they will want to set up their room and get organized. They ensure their private room is clean, organized and tidy. With so many parts of the tool kit, it’s important to stay organized so the professional can find what they need quickly when a client is in the chair. They then sterilize equipment and clean work areas. Estheticians also often “set the mood” in their offices, sometimes through dimmer lighting, relaxing music, or pleasantly scented steam. Consult with the Client Because an esthetician is licensed to skin care and makeup services, and every single person’s skin has different needs, the specialist should always consult with the client about their challenges, preferences and skin allergies. The appointment generally begins with the client consultation, where you will ask a number of questions to learn what the client wants you to do. When you reach a full understanding of what the client wants, the services can then begin. This time should also be used to get to know your client on a more personal level – their tastes, interests, preferences, about their family, job, and so on. Building a personal relationship with your clients leads to customer retention and referrals. Perform the Skin Treatment This part could include cleansing the clients’ skin with water, special soaps, creams or lotions selected specifically for their skin types. You can talk the client through how to properly cleanse and care for their skin. You may apply creams, lotions, tonics and other solutions to address the specific client’s skin imperfections. Some clients may need blackhead extractions or hair removal services like waxing. Most facials and esthetics services involve some elements of gentle massage for relaxation and stimulating the skin. The goal is for every client to leave with their skin looking and feeling better than when they came in. Each appointment is completely custom to the client. Schedule the Next Appointment & Ask for Referrals When the appointment is complete, every esthetician should tell the client when they would like to see the customer next, and try to get them to book their next appointment before they pay and leave. Also let them know about any upcoming specials or promotions, and inform them of any referral discounts you offer if they send friends and family to your office. For example, “I can get you scheduled right now if you like. And don’t forget that if you refer a friend, you get 10% off your next facial!” Licensed skin care experts should remind their happy, loyal customers that they love referral business so you can continue to grow your clientele!
