I'm changing careers, and have always been interested in opening a holistic/healing spa. I worked as a receptionist at an Aveda spa years ago, and liked it very much. I'm considering opening one myself, and am wondering if I should get an eesthetician's license first. I'm also wanting some training in spa/salon management. The only program in the US that teaches both of this are a few Aveda Institutes in Ohio for some reason.
Does anyone have any experience, recommendations?
