An Education in Skincare Opens Many Doors

Esthetics focuses on skincare. From refining surface texture to addressing skin issues or enhancing natural beauty with makeup, estheticians get to help their clients look and feel their very best. Our Basic Esthetics Program is designed to help you learn the foundations of professional skincare, preparing you to sit for the State license exam and explore a future as a professional esthetician.

We offer multiple program start dates and flexible scheduling options so you can fit your esthetician training into your busy schedule. RACE focuses on developing a supportive learning environment with smaller class sizes that ensure you can get more one-on-one mentoring from our experienced instructors. They’ll help you develop your skills, going beyond esthetics and sharing valuable insights on sales, marketing, and the business of working in a salon. You can also work with real clients in our student salon, building your confidence as an esthetician while you refine your skincare skills!

Our Admissions Team can help you determine the best course for you and answer any questions about our Basic Esthetics Program.

I went to the master esthetician program here at RACE and loved it! It’s a great place for your education, the hybrid program works so well and the leaders here are amazing. Amber was so knowledgeable and helpful! Leisje and Sarah were also so great with trying to help with whatever I needed.

I have attended the Nail Tech course at Renaissance Academie. I passed my state board exams both written and practical and I want to especially thank the leaders and those who instruct the Mock Prep courses. Also, I benefited greatly from the video provided for my review. I felt extremely prepared and confident and comfortable as can be when being tested. Anything that I slipped up on was only because of my own personal test anxieties. And I knew better because of how well I felt prepared. I want to thank Sonya, Janelle, Maddi and all of my leaders who have been available to me throughout the offered program.
