the Pros and Cons of Going Out Solo as an Esthetician or Beauty Therapist

Pros as a Solo Beauty Therapist

  • Meeting new people

Beauty Therapist have the opportunity to work with people on a daily basis and help them feel better about themselves by improving their appearance. This can be rewarding because estheticians get feedback from customers who are grateful for your service, which is something that not everyone gets in life!

  • Independence

Independence is a choice for many beauty therapist, either by owning their own salon or spa and working with clients independent from the business. This offers them stability as well as flexibility in terms of scheduling clients to a time that suits them - something that's especially important to those who want more control over what they do..

  • Being Active

Beauty Therapist spend a lot of their day on their feet. They go from one client to the next, with only short breaks in between each appointment and throughout the course of the day, some people find joy working as a beauty therapist because they're constantly engaged no matter what comes along (whether its interacting directly w/ clients or preparing beforehand).

  • Choose your own hours and your own clients

Being a solo beauty therapist means you are the BOSS. you have the flexibility to choose your ideal client that matches YOUR work schedule. I, for instance run a very busy house hole of four kids so having the flexibility to work around children's schedule suits me.
