We’re Passionate about the Skin Care Business

Do you find yourself staring in the mirror looking at your skin as if it’s the surface of the moon? Are you obsessed with finding the next miracle skin potion? Do you want to help people feel and look their healthiest and most beautiful? Then the wonderful field of Esthetics is for you. Esthetics – That mysterious word that many have trouble pronouncing is really all about skin health and beauty. And you’ve found yourself amongst friends.

At Summit Salon Academy we’re passionate about the skin business. We believe in the power of touch to transform someone and know that some aspects of beauty really are skin deep! We’ve partnered with the industry’s best to deliver a curriculum that teaches you how to diagnose, treat and revitalize your client’s skin. And a little makeup to glam things up along the way!

As a Dermalogica partnership schoolwe teach you industry relevant skills to deliver the best treatments… whether it’s a full prescriptive facial or a quick 20 minute micro treatment.Bio-Theraputic‘stools will allow you to use the latest technology to get the best results. And they’re a part of your student kit so you take these tools with you into your first job!

PCA Skin introduces you to the power of chemical peels and therapeutic masks. The experts at MuseBeauty.Pro have pulled together the trade secrets all professional makeup artists need to create beautiful makeup artistry. As an added bonus, we contract with Muse to offer special Airbrush makeup classes to every student enrolled in the Esthetics Program.

In addition to skin know-how we believe it’s equally important to develop strong consultation skills and learn the business strategies behind growing a clientele. You’ll be introduced to a system developed by the Summit Salon Business Center that is used by salons and estheticians all over the United States and Canada. Practicing these skills while you’re a student helps you to kick start your career.

We believe in small class sizes, so call now to arrange a visit and learn how you can get started. We offer both a day and evening schedule for our Esthetics course.
