What will you learn
Florida Academy of Beauty will prepare you from start to finish to work in a spa or to start your own practice. Every module begins with theory, followed by hands-on training. The modules consists of: Anatomy, Skin Analysis, Skin Care Products, Facials, Hair Removal, Makeup, Sanitation and Salon Management.
No prior skin care experience needed. Prospective students must pass 10th grade English before enrolling. A high school diploma or GED is not required.
220 hours. If you attend classes two days per week from 9am to 7pm, you will complete the course in under three months.
We have a bilingual English/Spanish class that runs Mondays and Tuesdays from 9am to 7pm and an English-only on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9am to 7pm. Students can work with the instructor to set their schedules as needed (ex. daytime only or nighttime only)
At the end of the course, you will test with our lead instructors. You do not need to sit for a state exam.
$4,240. This includes 3 months of instruction, supplies, a Dermalogica Student kit, and all state board license and registration fees.
FAB is a Dermalogica Partnership School so you will be trained in using the Dermalogica line of products. You also have the free option of being certified in the Dermalogica lineup as part of your instruction.
We use the latest edition of Milady’s esthetics textbook, workbook and exam review books which can be purchased via Amazon. The ISBN numbers are listed below in the FAQ.
Only $800 is due at enrollment. The balance of tuition can be spread out over the program. This equates to $985 per month until graduation. You will get a free set of Milady textbooks if you signup and pay in full using cash, check or Zelle.
We do not offer federal student loans or financial aid as this program is too short to qualify. Most students will attest that this program is one of the best bang-for-your-buck programs in Orlando. Most students recoup their tuition within three months after graduation when working in a spa.
At the end of the course, you will test with our lead instructor. You do not need to sit for a state exam to become a licensed esthetician.
As a licensed esthetician, you are ready to work at a spa or to start your own salon. Once you have secured your license, it is highly recommended that you continue with your Full Specialist license as many spas value the range and flexibility of the additional training.

When can I start?
I can only attend days or nights. Can I still enroll?
Do you offer financial aid?
Federal financial aid only applies for programs that are above 600 hours. Since Florida only requires 220 hours for a Facial Specialist license, federal funding does not apply for the Skin Care programs in most schools in Florida.
We offer payment plans so you only need to pay $800 at enrollment and the balance can be paid monthly while you are in school.
What is the ultimate cost versus a school that offers financial aid
At Florida Academy of Beauty, the Esthetics program costs $4,240. The total cost of our program is fairly priced even compared to schools where you get financial aid because the Pell grant does not cover the total cost.
You can enroll in the program with a $800 deposit. Then it is $980 per month until full payment is made or until you graduate.
