Become a licensed Esthetician! Licensed Estheticians can perform facial and body treatments, waxing, eyelash extensions, and more. This 750 hour course meets all the requirements of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. After completion, students are eligible to take the state written and practical exams to receive an Esthetician license.
At AWSI, you will find one of the most unique teaching environments--where students receive real-life spa experience and learn skills that will help them get ahead in the industry. It's 8,000 square feet of classrooms, reading libraries, student treatment rooms, relaxing waiting rooms to consult with clients, and a whole lotta love! Not only will you learn the average courses, you will leave knowing every aspect of how to run your own spa. Our students do it all here. They book their own treatments, they bill out clients, they answer phones, they literally make products that are used in treatment rooms and we all work together to keep our school running smoothly. As a senior student you are required to teach and mentor new students. We believe that you will learn more if you teach what you've learned to someone else.
You can't just drop by and enroll at our school. You are taken through an interview process to make sure that you are a good candidate for this alternative teaching experience. We have a very strict "Rudeness Policy" that Ann not only enforces with students, but with all employees and guests who enter our door. No one will be treated poorly or disrespected. It makes for a very nice learning and teaching environment!
No class is too small!
We tailor classes to those moving ahead quickly or those who are part-time and need to catch up. You are not just another student here. Our teachers and administrative team truly care about you and make it a point to help you reach your goals by customizing our program as much as possible to your needs.
All students participate in lectures. No sleeping or texting in these classes!
You are going to get what you came for!
We rely on many industry leaders to share the infomation they have learned with our students. Ten years ago, Ann approched several Cosmetology schools and offered to come in free of charge to lecture on treating severe forms of acne. She was never allowed in once. This always deeply troubled her! You will find the complete opposite here. We have an average of 6-10 guest speakers a month.
We have a team of medical estheticians that have chosen to become licensed Esthetics Instructors at AWSI. You will learn from women who are successful in this field. Above, Brit is teaching a small pod lecture on diffuse redness.
Even our own students lecture if they have a special skill they would like to teach everyone.
Holly, one of our students, is a Rochelle Rae makeup artist who is teaching fellow students the skill of airbrushing.
Ann will train you on her customized facial treatments and you will be working on fellow students within your first month of schooling. After 5-6 months you will have performed over a hundred treatments.
This course includes eyelash extensions training. Our graduates are fully licensed to perform eyelash extensions.
We are one of 3 schools in Texas that can actually license you as an "Eyelash Extension Specialist."
Students can study together in a relaxing lounge. We are a big fan of study groups. Having this team environment helps build friendships. It can be very scary to enter into a new career field, and knowing others who are doing the same can help tremendously.
Our students DO NOT fail state exams!!
After you graduate, you will have the opportunity to apply for an extended internship at the Ann Webb Skin Clinic. Ann will personally teach you to become a valued assistant to medical professionals, allowing you to work for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and medi-spas.
Students participate in practical treatments every day.
Chamagne is featured behind Ann in the photo to the right. She left the corporate world to become an AWSI Esthetician. After 8 months, she has graduated, passed exams, gotten a job in our clinic, and recently annouced that she was accepted to RN school and will pursue a career as a Cosmetic Injectionist!
Many internships have been given to students who were struggling to pay tuition. Call us and let us help you figure out how we can make this Esthetics dream happen for you!
