Advanced Esthetic Classes

Advanced Esthetic Classes

Our advanced esthetic classes are post-license training.  Advanced simply means they are continuing education for all estheticians.  They take you beyond what you learned in beauty school.  They give you the most popular skills that clients want and expect you to know.

All classes are “on-demand”.   I work privately with one or two students.  We schedule the classes when you are ready and need them.

These are not product specific classes but focused on being educational in nature unless otherwise specified. Please feel free to call with questions. I look forward to seeing you in class soon to hone your skills or expand your knowledge.  Prepare for the future now.  Lure those clients in with skills and techniques most estheticians only wish they had.

 Classes are held at our clinic in Eugene, Oregon. Please contact us directly for complete details.  A certificate is given for each completed class.

  Please contact my office and we will schedule a date for your next class!!   Classes are available by pre-registration only.  A deposit is required at the time of registration.     Contact our offices for details 541-344-7789

Advanced Esthetic Classes run from 9 AM to 4 PM with a 1-hour lunch, but the duration of an individual class may vary depending on the number of participants and number of models available.   We cannot guarantee a model will be available for any specific service so if there is something you specifically want to learn, please indicate this on your registration form and ask about bringing in an outside model. Licensed estheticians or esthetic students may not attend as non-class member models.  All attendees will give and receive the treatments learned in that class.

“ON-DEMAND” Classes

What does ON-DEMAND mean?  On-demand means you want to learn what I offer.  Rather than a set schedule, I respond to your desire and we set up a class that fits your schedule and mine.  Simple! No waiting for months.

These are private classes.  I am yours for the class. If you want to take advanced classes, please call and ask about our on-demand class program.  With this program, we will work with your schedule and ours to set up a “first available” or “next available” date for the class you need.  Note: if this is a single student class that includes a treatment you will need a model(s) to practice that treatment on. They will receive the treatment at 1/2 the regular price. Or bring a friend, take the class together and work on each other. It’s a fun way to save money.

Single student private training: $1000 per day.

Two students in a class $550 per day, each.



Need training for several of your staff?  Ask about in-clinic training where I come to you.
