Getting the job is one thing, but keeping the job is another thing. It takes a lot of effort and hard work to make sure that you become successful in your job as an esthetician. One factor that can contribute to this success are the clothes you are wearing while doing the job.
Of course, the best thing for an esthetician is to wear an esthetician uniform. The uniform helps give not just a sense identity to estheticians but it also gives an air of professionalism. There are many professions that wear uniforms and estheticians can be one of them. But if you don’t have a uniform yet, here are some tips to help you on how you should dress for your esthetician job.
01. Wear clothes that fit you properly – regardless of what job you have or what dress code there is at work, whether you are allowed to wear jeans and casual shorts or mandated to wear corporate attire, what’s important is that you must wear clothes that fit you properly. If you wear clothes that are too tight, it might impede you from doing a good job, while if you wear clothes that are too loose, you will just look unprofessional, not to mention sloppy, which is not something you want to be described as, especially given that you are an esthetician.
02. Make sure that the shoes you wear are comfortable – your workwear is not just limited to clothes, but you must also take into consideration the shoes that you will wear. Consider the type of work you will be doing as an esthetician. Will much of it be done while sitting or standing up? Will you have to cart around some things? If so, you may want to stay away from stilettos unless you have arches of steel. Wear something comfortable, but still professional looking.
03. Avoid wearing perfume or cologne that is too strong – also, you may want to avoid putting on a fragrance that smells too strongly. Your clients may find it too distracting or not appreciate it. Just wear something mild. Ask your co-workers if they can smell your perfume, if they do, take it down a notch or find something else to wear.
04. Don’t wear too many accessories – you don’t need to be too flashy in what accessories you will wear. Choose something tasteful, something that will not distract your clients. When you have too many accessories, there is a tendency to look tacky instead of professional.
05. Make sure your jewelry or clothes do not make too much noise – another way to show that you are dressing appropriately for work is to ensure that your clothes, and most especially accessories do not make too much noise. It may be your pants that make a sound because of friction, or maybe you’re multiple bracelets that make a clicking sound, but all these could be distracting not just for the client but maybe even for you.
