Where do beauticians make the most money? In addition to selling your services, one tip on how to make good money as a beautician is to also sell retail products. It's one of our favorite beautician marketing ideas if you get some kind of commission for selling certain products. Did your client love their facial service? Perfect! This is your chance to sell them that oil they loved or the scrub they couldn't stop talking about. The same goes for everything from nail polish to makeup.
Consider retail products as your secret weapon as a skincare specialist. Medical estheticians work in doctors' offices and medical spas and represent about 7 percent of employed beauticians, while 5 percent work in health and personal care stores. Working as a medical esthetician can help you get your foot in the door if you aspire to work in the medical field. Ali McCoy-Stengel, registered nurse, LME, BSN, licensed paramedic esthetician and founder and owner of Always Beautiful medical aesthetic %26 Cosmetics in nearby Aurora, is at the center of it all.
