  1. 1. How to Break into Beauty Industry? The health and beauty industry has grown tremendously in the past few decades. And it’s expected to grow at a much faster rate in the coming years than it has been in the past.

While more and more people are recognizing the value of healthy looking skin, the role of an esthetician is also changing. Gone are the days when they were expected to give just facials and massage clients all day.
