Resume, but for Estheticians

Resume, but for Estheticians

New year, new you, new job? Maybe?! If you are thinking about switching jobs, there is plenty to think about. Where you want to work, how much you want to work, what services you want to offer, work atmosphere, I could go on. But, one thing that you may not be thinking about is your resume. What?? Yes. You NEED a professional, organized and esthetic resume. 

A resume is often the first impression that your potential new boss or hiring manager is going to get from you. So, let's make it a good one! I am going to walk you through some do's, some addons and a few things to stay away from.


Keep it organized. This means that your personal information is in one area, your work experience in another and your education is also separated.

Keep it honest. Be genuine about what you are sharing. Remember, you don't have to list anything, but what you do mention on your resume should be a true reflection of who you are and what you've done.

Keep it aesthetic. For the love of the beauty community, please, make it cute! Let's use colors and fonts that represent you and your personality! Don't go overboard though, it needs to be clean and easy to read too.

Add ons

Photo. I love a photo on a resume that captures who you are and what you actually look like. Doesn't need to be a professional headshot, but a photo with good lighting and your happy face.

Your work. If you have an instagram or website you want to share with your future employer be sure to add that to the personal information section.

About me. I have looked at a LOT of resumes over the years and I always appreciate a little blurb about who you actually are outside of your job. A couple sentences about how you like to spend your time outside of work, any interests or hobbies, something to help your future employer connect with you aside from being an amazing esty.


Stay clear of exaggerating or overstating your history. Don't be saying you had a job doing ____ for ____ years if you didn't.  

Stay clear of making it too long. I know you probably have a ton to put on there, but if you are trying to get a job as a head esthetician, it may not be relevant to say you babysat for a month in 2011. 

Stay clear of anything you don't want shared. Period. If there are things you don't want to talk about, keep them off of your resume.

I hope this helps you get started in the right direction. Of course there is so much more I could add, but this is a great starting point. As always, if you need more help I am happy to make you a custom resume that will help you to land the job of your dreams. Don't let your resume be the reason you don't land the job.
