I'm 26 years old now and I have been in the field for 3 years. However, there is something I have noticed and I'm wondering about. The majority of estheticians I have seen are 20-25 years old, maximum 30. Even when I was in esthetics school, I was one of the oldest ones and I was only 23. Is this a career typically for young people? Do estheticians at a certain age tend to leave this career field and switch to something else? Since estheticians have to promote beauty which is strongly connected to youthfulness in today's culture, I would think that there is a great need for younger estheticians? What are your thoughts about this? I personally enjoy being an esthetician and would like to work as one as long as I can.
