Our Esthiology Curriculum

A top-notch school should offer a comprehensive curriculum that covers a wide range of topics relevant to esthetician training and skin care.

The goal is to provide students with the skills, tools, and resources needed to become a successful esthetician.

State of the Art Facilities & Hands on Experience

The learning environment plays a significant role in skill development. Effective schools provide state-of-the-art facilities, including well-equipped classrooms, practice areas, salon studios, and modern equipment. Access to industry-standard tools and products enables students to gain practical experience and stay updated with the latest trends and techniques. Because Douglas J operates actual salons and spas, we also teach the business best practices that ensure success. Student time on the clinic floor is not just about performing technically excellent services on our guests, it’s about teaching students about the consultations, retailing skills, language and more that make a successful service provider. We know what salons expect and need in new talent, and we mold our students into the ideal employees we know they’re looking for. Practical experience is crucial for building confidence, honing skills, and preparing for real-world scenarios. We’re shaping the craft through business.
