Esthetician Schools near Kansas City, MO

If you are dreaming of an esthetician job in Missouri or Kansas, consider Kansas City. As of 2019, estheticians in the metro area earned a mean annual salary of $36,840 ($17.71 per hour). Statewide, Missouri anticipates esthetician jobs to grow by 10% between 2016 and 2026, while Kansas expects no change. While the lack of change on the Kansas side might give you pause, remember that number includes the entire state, much of which is rural. Kansas City is rising through the ranks as one of the best cities to live in the United States, and part of that's because of its overall job prospects.

While KC crosses state lines, there is no automatic licensure reciprocity, so you will need to apply for new licensure if you are trained in one state and want to work in the other. Missouri estheticians need to complete 750 hours of training or a 1,500-hour apprenticeship plus pass two exams. Kansas requires 1,000 hours of training and passing scores on two exams as well. The schools below can help you fulfill your chosen state's requirements.
