Back to School – Beginning Your Journey in Esthetics

Changing leaves, cooler weather, apples, pumpkins, books and pencils! Fall is typically equated with “back-to-school” and things are no different here at the Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics. This past September, we welcomed 60 new students as they began their esthetic training. These incoming students were both nervous and excited as they started their journey here. Current students smile when a new group enters, as they remember their own first day. Before long, nerves are replaced with confidence, as they excel in their new skills.

There is an overall sense of camaraderie and many friendships are formed. We make learning fun here. For example, each year the students are invited to participate in our Halloween costume party. This is not just a party, it is also a great opportunity to showcase students’ new makeup skills and overall creativity. Prizes are awarded for various categories, including best make-up and best group. The Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics staff loves a good party too and have been captured on film in some impressive costumes.

So where does a student start? We offer three simple and convenient schedule options to fit your lifestyle:

  • Full-Time Day. Students who are able to commit to a full-time schedule will finish 300 hours of study in ten short weeks. They will complete the whole 1200 hour Master Esthetic program in just ten months.
  • Part-Time Day. Each September, the Institute offers this part-time option. It has been an attractive option for mothers of young children, as they have found this to be the perfect way to balance their family life with their educational goals. Students who choose this option will complete their 600 hours in just under a year.
  • Part-Time Evening. For those with the obligation of a full-time job, the part-time evening schedule is a great option. As with the part-time day options, students will complete their 600 hours in just under a year.

To find out if an esthetic career could be for you, the Admissions Department invites you to take a tour. During your tour, you will have the opportunity to see our students perform various treatments in our Student Public Clinic and also hear our knowledgable and dedicated instructors. Private tours are offered daily. For those who prefer a group setting, an Open House will be held on November 5th from 2:00pm-4:00pm and 5:30pm-7:30pm. With either option, you will receive a gift card to experience a complimentary treatment. The last class of 2012 will begin on November 26. Classes will begin after Thanksgiving and will include a one week holiday break to allow for extended holiday plans.

Come and visit us soon. It will be our pleasure to assist you!
