To those that currently work as an esthetician, can you tell me what kind of personality is best suited to be an esthetician?

Is it better to be chatty like a hairstylist or are esthetician services a time for the client to be more relaxed and be quiet like a massage therapist?

Thanks!
Sam

You are definitely in a spa environment, clients like to relax. If they want to talk that is ok, but we as estheticians should not be chatty.
That being said, when you get your regular clients coming in for years, they may want to chat and catch up, but the massage time is ALWAYS for relaxing.

So much depends upon your location. In spas where relaxation is the priority, talking is less important. But estheticians don't just work in spas anymore. Some of us work in clinical settings and educating the client is part of the job so talking is a necessity.

An esthetician's best success comes from turning new clients into long-term loyal clients, so some chatting is necessary just to get to know them and to create a bond. Honestly, if you genuinely like people, you will do really well no matter which way you go.
