Focus on the Field: Special Guests & Trips
The esthetic industry is as diverse a field as it is rewarding. Once you become a licensed esthetician, you have the ability to pursue many different career opportunities that suit your particular interests. Thinking about becoming makeup artist that uses cosmetics to create special effects on movie sets? Or perhaps you want to focus on hair removal and become to go-to authority on waxing and other forms of epilation. At the Elaine Sterling Institute, the possibilities for success are endless.
ESI students regularly visit businesses in the industry for field trips as part of the curriculum. Past locations include European Wax Center, Natural Body Spa and Institut’ DERMed. Students are able to learn practical knowledge and skills from guest speakers who frequent the school. These industry experts come from a variety of different specialties and backgrounds and include plastic surgeons, celebrity makeup artists, and spa business owners. One example includes renowned Make-Up and Special Effects Artist Travis Pates, who has worked on blockbusters like the Hunger Games series.

We believe that field trips and instruction from guest speakers inspire provides students with unique learning opportunities and inspiration in selecting their career path. At ESI, our ultimate goal is to create the next generation of industry innovators.
