Esthetician Schools near Asheville, NC and Greenville / Spartanburg / Anderson, SC

Asheville in North Carolina and the Greenville–Spartanburg–Anderson metro triad in South Carolina both lie in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, with elevations ranging from 800 to over 2,000 feet. This means they have cold winters with some snow—conditions that can make skin feel chapped and raw. Summers, however, tend to be muggy. Humidity can also negatively affect the skin—it can make acne worse and cause rashes to develop.

Therefore, estheticians in these areas have to be on top of their game to handle the range of skin issues residents may have. If you are up for the challenge, becoming an esthetician in any of these cities can be a good option.

Estheticians in these areas earned the following average yearly salaries as of May 2019:

City Yearly Salary Hourly Salary
Asheville, NC $36,970 $17.77
Greenville–Anderson, SC $23,880 $11.48
