My daughter and I went here last week for the ??Spa Day?. It was fantastic! First our esthetician student greeted us and we had some paperwork to fill out then she took us to the room where they do their facials. She looked at our skin through some magnifier then her teacher came in to do a consultation and asked us questions about our skin. That was very informative and fascinating I learned things I didn??t know about my own skin The room was dark and very relaxing, great scents and aroma. After the facial we were led to the pedicure room where we started our pedicure and manicure. It??s really neat they have two nail students working on each of us, one to do the pedicure and one to do the manicure. I felt very pampered. My daughter had some really cute nail art done on her toes and I had French polish on my hands and toes. The students seemed very knowledgeable and excited to have us as clients. We will be back and I have already referred three of my friends.

I was in for my tour of the esthetics program in May (my friend graduated in 2011) and was impressed with the staff and the students. Everyone was so professional and friendly, lots of smiling faces. All of my questions and more were answered. Based on the information and professionalism I received I decided to attend this school. The evening class is going to be best for me simply because have a family and a fulltime job.

Now, I have just registered for the esthetics program that starts in September.
When I walked in the door for my appointment I was blown away! This is not the same place that I toured originally. They have TOTALLY remodeled the entire school. The new materials and colors they have used are obviously very upscale. It is absolutely beautiful! I was excited to start before, but now I am absolutely ready to start now but I will wait until September.

Good job Aesthetics Northwest, I can??t wait to be one of your many successful grads just like my friend from 2011.

I was looking for a school for skin care for awhile. I searched the internet & I saw the Aesthetics Northwest Institution. When I was going to my facialist in California I remember seeing her diploma on the wall and she was a graduate from the Aesthetics Northwest Institute. I thought she was so educated & thats when I realized this was the institution I wanted to attend. So when I moved to Seattle I immediately went to meet JoAnne and her educated staff, I very impressed by all of their knowledge. Now After only 4 months I am almost a graduate , I had such a wonderful experience, I met such incredible people, I gained a lot of knowledge, & confidence especially. The instructors are the best, they really know how to help you understand everything you need to know to be a successful esthetician . With the help of JoAnne & her staff I feel that I can finish the esthetic 600 hours course with top grades. The best part is having The Aesthetics Northwest Institution on my resume (which is such a legend in the skin care industry), I have already been offered a job in the medical field with a dermotolgist. I am so excited to be in this industry of beauty . I would reccommend this school to everyone who wishes to pursue a career and become very educated in the beauty industry.

I have been in the corporate world for over 15 years. I am 30 years old,and have decided to change my profession to become a skincare expert.
I remembered Aesthetics Northwest Institute back from when I graduated high school. It has always been the top establishment for skincare and esthetics.
I had the honor of meeting JoAnne herself back when I went to learn about the school and register. I must tell you that I was so impressed with her straight forward style and solid knowledge about everything skincare related. Sounds silly,but this woman is a walking encyclopedia. She is also a pioneer of the industry and it was an honor to be one of her mentees. I was so impressed with the school, the instructors, the professionalism of the staff that I signed up that day.
I want to stress that you are not a number here. Each student gets personal attention, if you are having trouble with something,you are helped....things like this do not go on in other schools.
I recently graduated and found a job doing what I love.
I never do these reviews, but wanted to take this opportunity to publicly compliment the institute on the high standard that they hold and the environment that they insist we keep. If not, I would never have gotten my job.
I feel very lucky to have chosen this school and know that I will continue to go far in this industry. THANK YOU AESTHETICS NORTHWEST FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!
I have looked at some of these other reviews, and I can only say that maybe these students were not serious about their education.

I have been in the fashion industry for over 20 years. Due to the recession and the decline in the economy, layoffs and foreclosures it was a real wake up call for me. Its amazing how one minute you can have a great job, home & family and the next minute you have lost some or all of that life without warning. Even when it doesn??t happen directly to you it can still make you feel so insecure with so many people around you that are losing their jobs. The company I work for has about 50 employees and each year approx 8 people get laid off with no new hiring. Being that I am older, more sensible and wiser I started to look around me to see what professions were still growing despite the economy with barely any layoffs and I realized the spa & skin care industry was still growing even though we were in a recession. I decided to start looking around at the schools that offer the esthetics skin care licensing program that entitles you to become a skin care expert . I finally settled on Aesthetics Northwest Institute because when I went to tour the school they really made me feel welcome and such great flexibility in the schedules unlike some of the other schools had set days and times but I needed something that helped me to work around my work schedule & the everyday busy life of my family. I am so glad I chose this institute it was such a wonderful, magical experience. They have such a high education system, all the instructors were extremely knowledgeable and didn??t treat us like we were just students they made us all feel important and like a family. I have learned so much in such a short time I never would have thought before this program that there is so much to learn about the science of skin care. We learned the science of the skin, product ingredients, client communication, business management, and so much more. The inspirational JoAnne herself is a very charismatic, knowledgeable, hard working, good hearted individual. We all look up to her and are so inspired by her achievements and work ethics she is one of the best role models I have ever met and we are all very lucky to be a part of this special school.

I graduated form Aesthetics Northwest Institute last month and I wanted to share my experience with anyone looking to become an esthetician.
I am a mother of 2 small children. They are now in school full-time and I am able to pursue a career once again. I have always loved beauty and skin and thought this would be a great field for me to go into. My only stumbling block was how could I juggle school and still be home for my children as they needed me. Well, after much research for a school that would fit my needs I found Aesthetics Northwest. When I came to see the school I was immediately impressed. The staff quickly related to my situation, of being a single mom and also needing to find a career. It was a wealth of comfort, knowledge and support. While Aesthetics Northwest may not be as new or fancy as some of the other schools I visited, this school had a sense of warmth and family that none of the others seemed to offer. This is just what I needed. I met with a couple of the teachers who only cemented the warmth and sense of family I felt upon my tour of the Institute.
You can??t help but be impressed with the wide range of knowledge that the teachers possess and the caring patient way in which they present it to the students. Yes this was the school for me. Not only did I already like the staff and instructors but they offered me something that none of the other schools could?flexible scheduling. Now I could pursue my career path and still be the mother that I want to be for my children. I am able to attend part-time days so I can be with my kids after school. That is amazing! Need I say more?
I would highly recommend this school for anyone who wants to be an esthetician. What a great experience!

I recently graduated from Aesthetics Northwest. I found the experience absolutely wonderful. The instructors were very knowledgeable and helpful. They were always ready to answer any questions we had. Being a registered nurse and having worked in the medical field for 20 years I still found the experience very enlightening and uplifting. Three days after graduating, I landed a great position in one of the preeminent destination resorts in Washington State. I highly recommend this school for anyone interested in a great education from instructors with so much knowledge and experience in the esthetics industry. I visited every school in the area that offers an esthetics program and I am so glad with my final decision to attend this school. It actually changed my life.

GREAT SERVICE, ATMOSPHERE AND PRODUCTS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO ABC NAIL & SKIN COLLEGE FOR YEARS AND LOVE THEM. THE SERVICE, ATMOSPHERE AND PRODUCTS OF ABC NAIL AND SKIN / AESTHETICS NW ARE GREAT.
I ALWAYS TAKE MY FRIENDS THAT COME IN TO TOWN TO VISIT TO HAVE FACIALS AND THE STUDENTS AND MANAGEMENT NEVER FAIL ME. WE JUST HAD FACIALS LAST WEEK AND THEY WERE GREAT.
THE ATMOSPHERE IS COMFORTABLE AND THE TWO GALS THAT DID OUR FACIALS WERE GREAT.
I HAVE NEVER GONE TO THE SCHOOL AND HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE. THE OWNERS/MANAGER IS SO KNOWLEDGEABLE. I AM ALWAYS TELLING MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY ABOUT THEM WHENEVER I HEAR ABOUT SOMEONE HAVING SKIN PROBLEMS OR ARE LOOKING FOR A GOOD PEDICURE OR NAIL SERVICES. THE SCHOOL IS ALWAYS CLEAN AND SANITARY AND COMFORTABLE.
IT IS REALLY GREAT TO BE ABLE TO RELY ON THEM TO SHOW MY GUESTS A GREAT RELAXING TIME AND TO GET EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE WITH PERSONABLE, CARING, KNOWLEDGEABLE PEOPLE WORKING ON US.

IT IS JUST A REALLY GREAT TIME AND JUST SOMETHING SPECIAL TO DO WITH YOUR OUT OF TOWN GUESTS OR WITH MY FRIENDS.
THIS HAS BECOME MY FAVORITE BIRTHDAY, WEDDING, SHOWER, BABY SHOWER JUST ANYTIME GIFT I GIVE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT WHOEVER I GIVE A GIFT TO ABC NAIL & SKIN WILL GET GREAT SERVICE AND BE PAMPERED LIKE I INTEND MY GIFT TO BE FOR THEM.

DON'T HESITATE TO TREAT YOURSELF OR A FRIEND TO THE SERVICES AT ABC. THEY HAVE NEVER LET ME DOWN AND I'M A HARD SELL AS I HAVE BEEN HAVING FACIAL AND USING THEIR PRODUCTS FOR YRS AND WHEN I HAVE GONE ANYWHERE ELSE IN OR OUT OF TOWN THEY HAVEN'T HAD THE KNOWLEDGE OR THE SERVICE THAT I HAVE CONSISTANTLY RECIEVED FROM ABC AND THEIR STAFF.

For interested students that plan on enrolling in this school, please re-think that decision. I am very disapointed with the "education" i am receiving it seems like they only have "lectures" when someone complains about not learning anything and the teachers are very offending, rude and ignorant. i feel like they are stuck in the past and dont like change and are not respectfull to the grown women who are "trying" to learn SOMETHING HERE. I do not feel confident with my training at this school especially if i were to go out into the real world and work in a real spa. Im sure they once were passionate about teaching but all that is lost now, its just one big mess and i wouldnt reccomend this for anyone.

AND JUST TO LET EVERYONE KNOW-- ALL THE GOOD COMMENTS WRITTEN ON THIS PAGE WERE THE STAFF AT THE SCHOOL ASKING LONG TIME CLIENTS TO WRITE A GOOD REVEIW IN EXCHANGE FOR A FREE FACIAL/SERVICES...pretty pathetic

For interested students that plan on enrolling in this school, please re-think that decision. I am very disapointed with the "education" i am receiving it seems like they only have "lectures" when someone complains about not learning anything and the teachers are very offending, rude and ignorant. i feel like they are stuck in the past and dont like change and are not respectfull to the grown women who are "trying" to learn SOMETHING HERE. I do not feel confident with my training at this school especially if i were to go out into the real world and work in a real spa.

Pros: cheap services for clients

Cons: HORRIBLE ATMOSPHERE FOR STUDENTS

I have been a customer of ABC Nail & Skin Care for over 12 years. I have had every type of facial that they offer on a regular basis. I have also had most of the other services they offer. My experience has excellent!!! The instructors are professional and knowledgeable and the students are consistently well trained. I have tried many of the other well known salons in the area and I keep coming back to ABC Nail & Skin.

I have been a customer of ABC Nails for over 10 years and have been quite satisfied with the quality of services received. I usually get the Day of Beauty and find it not only relaxing, but also good for my skin and nails. Rarely will I request a student as I have had good luck with all I have enjoyed working with. I find the staff there to be most congenial as well as helpful and will continue to enjoy their services for the years to come!

I have been a customer of ABC Nails for over 10 years and have always enjoyed my experience there. I normally enjoy the day of beauty and find it relaxing and helpful in the care of my skin and nails. The students for the most part, have been quite good, and try hard to satisfy. So much so, that I rarely request any one in particular, rather I accept who they schedule me with. I find the staff to be quite nice and accommodating and helpful to the students. They will continue to have my business!

Pros: You can treat yourself to a reasonably price spa day

Cons: We must remember it is a school and not a spa

I??ve been a patron of ABC Aesthetics Northwest Institute for over 13 years and have always been very happy with both the services I??ve received (waxing, facials, manicures, and pedicures) as well as the clean and sanitary conditions of the school. The students and staff are friendly, professional, and consistently on time with my appointments. I have recommended ABC to many of my friends.

I have been a steady customer at Aesthetics NW for almost 20 years. The owner has been in business for a long time and provides a wealth of knowledge about skin care, nail care, and cosmetics. The service I've received has been top notch. Instructors are highly trained and always available to assist the students when they provide services to customers. And, the students seem happy to be where they are, get along with each other and the instructors, and are motivated and eager to please. Many of the students I've talked to secured jobs in the aesthetics field while they were still in the school.
I've had facials in the facial room that is set up to service several customers at the same time, yet roomy enough to allow quiet and lowered lighting in case the customer wants to sleep. The facility is clean and comfortable and the facials are a real treat. (I've had facials in high end places in Seattle and all over the world. I have to say the Aesthetics NW facials are better than most.) I get waxed and tinted at Aesthetics NW on a regular basis, both with positive results. I was shocked when I read the negative reviews on your website. It seems as if some sick individual has launched an ugly campaign to undermine this wonderful business. How truly pathetic and sad!!!

Some of the comments recently posted are definitely false from my perspective. I moved to Seattle over twenty years ago and have been going to Aesthetics Northwest about every two weeks since. My skin looks terrific, and a large part of that is due the products and facials I've received there. The owner is an expert in skin care and has a true passion for the work. The staff has always been professional in their approach, and if they need guidance, the instructor's are there to answer any questions. I've recommended Aesthetics Northwest to several of my co-workers over the years, and all have been happy with their results. For me it's been twenty years of great skin care at a reasonable price!

I attended this school last year and I had a great experience. I agree with the review from Jan. Some of the reviews seem to be from a disgruntled student. This school gives you all the tools you
need to become a first rate aesthetician or nail tech, depending on how much you want to put into it. As with any school, after you get your license (and they for sure give you the instruction you need to do that) that's when the real education begins.
They have rules. And they have consequences if you fail to follow those rules.
All in all, I had a great experience here and make it a priority to return for treatments whenever I can. I'm not in the area anymore but if I was, I'd definately be a regular client.

I have been visiting ABC Nail & Skin, Aesthetics Northwest, since I think 1995---long time. I go and have waxing and my most favorite treatment of all time, facials. Every spring and fall I get a series of 3 skin treatments called Kertalyese. I like the school as I think the students are more self conscious then other spa/salons. As I said I have been visiting them since 1995. They have my vote hands down. I am Oh so glad ABC is here!!!! for me. Take time out and have a facial, pedicure or wax anytime. It is my Zen that I do for myself. M. Wyer

I have been going to ABC for years now for pedicures. Their staff and students are very knowledgeable and provide excellent service. They care about what they are providing and take as much time needed to get it done right. They do not rush through the painting or massage, which makes it all the more relaxing. I highly recommend them to everyone!

I came across this by accident and was shocked by the negative reviews below - I must assume this is a very sad and unhappy person, and I sounds like just one person, to be so visious and unkind...
I personally have highly recommend ABC to all my friends and family and have been very pleased over the past many years. I have been going there since the early 90's and have had only wonderful treatments and I have tried them all and I love the prices. The students have been extreeemly professional. . One of the instructors check my face before my facial one day and suggested I go to the doctor, there was a discoloration on my lip that concered her.. I went to the doctor the next day and it was Cancer - I am very greatful she had that knowlege. All the students have been great, professional and fun. The school is clean and the products from France are amazing, I have been using them for years. I may have to move out of state and some of the people I will miss the most is my doctor, dentist and ABC....

I attended this school and had a good experience. The staff was very good to me and I was good to them. I enjoyed my time there and did learn a lot. Most of these negative reviews that I read are probably from spoiled kids who want something for nothing. In life you only get something out of what you put into it. I put a lot of effort into learning and the staff knows that. They know who is serious about learning. And also they do not do everything for you, of course, they try to make it like the real working environment. I may be returning for the aesthetics course in time.

I thought I would try an inexpensive facial and ugh, that was a big mistake! When I walked in, there was nobody to be seen. I had to wait for a few minutes before one student noticed me. After filling out the form, I was led to a so-called facial room. On the way there, there was a filthy kitchen-like room full of students eating and chatting, with laundry going on. I swear I smelled garbage when I passed this room! Floor was creaking the whole time. In the "facial room," there were all sorts of different facial beds and outdated looking equipment. Anyway, the student who gave me a facial was very nice, but the old woman (instructor?) who helped her analyze my skin wasn't very nice! She sounded really harsh and even sounded mean. I would not want to learn anything form this witch! During the facial, the student had to constantly ask other students to borrow products as it was evident there was not enough of them. They had to use little sample tubes to perform facials! I asked for a steamer, but the student told me the instructors there would not allow them to use it because it's bad for the skin. I wonder why other spas use it??? Although the student was very nice, she had to refer to the handouts because she was saying she was there only for a couple weeks. I thought they were required to be there for a certain number of hours before they work on the clients. Not at this place, I guess. After the facial, I peeked at the pedicure room and I saw a student carrying a tub filled with water. They don't even have a pedicure chair! I really felt sorry for those students. They obviously do not learn a lot and are treated like slave labor. After all, isn't it how the "school" makes money after students pay tuition? NOT RECOMMENDED!

What a find! I have been to other schools for services before and not had the best experience. What a difference this place is. I was in the area so I figured I would go in to see what it was like. When I went in I was greeted by a very nice staff (I think) person. When I told her of my past visits to other schools she took me thru the entire school to show me the areas where the services were performed. I was so impressed that I made an appointment for a facial the following day. When I arrived for my appointment, a student met me and had me fill out a short questionnaire similar to those you fill out the first time you go to the doctor. We then went to the facial area where the student gave me gown and had me change and then covered me in the bed. Then one of her teachers came in to view my skin condition and make recommendations for my skin type. I was very impressed with her knowledge of my particular skin type and the corresponding facial, so impressed that I just returned home from my 3rd facial at Aesthetics Northwest and intend to continue.
The 3 students I have had were all very knowledgeable and confident in their skills. I have recommended this place to several of my friends and will continue to do so.

Well, I have to say I knew not to expect a typical spa treatment/environment as it is a '"school" however what I noticed convinced me to never go back. The school is not clean it's really dirty, the bathroom the customers use had garbage spilling out of the trash can and this was at 10 am in the morning, not at the end of a busy day! The student that waxed me did a good job, but she struggled with the wax, apparently it was old and was not warm enough, the student next to her was really struggling and then told her client she had only been at the school a few weeks!!! So she should not even have been practicing on a client yet!
The real fun was during the facial when the poor student working on me had to keep apologizing for having to move lights to be able to work, as each one she tried to use was BROKEN! She could not find the products she wanted to use either, they were not available apparently! I noticed the entire time I was there the instructor in her office and students just sitting around, not much interaction at all between them. I asked her if the sponges she was using during my facial were disposable, she said no...I was grossed out at that as well. The instructor that did come around (a really old woman) seemed more interested in tripping up the student with questions than in helping her, I was not impressed at all. I will never ever go back there.

Well, I have to say I knew not to expect a typical spa treatment/environment as it is a '"school" however what I noticed convinced me to never go back. The school is not clean it's really dirty, the bathroom the customers use had garbage spilling out of the trash can and this was at 10 am in the morning, not at the end of a busy day! The student that waxed me did a good job, but she struggled with the wax, apparently it was old and was not warm enough, the student next to her was really struggling and then told her client she had only been at the school a few weeks!!! So she should not even have been practicing on a client yet! Also the sheets were so grungy, granted I was fully dressed but the wax room was filthy and smelled bad.
During the facial the student working on me had to keep apologizing for having to move lights to be able to work, as each one she tried to use was BROKEN, the blanket seemed dirty also but I was too embarrassed to say anything! She could not find the products she wanted to use either, they were not available for her to use apparently! I noticed the entire time I was there the instructor sitting in her office and students just sitting around, not much interaction at all between them. I asked her if the sponges she was using during my facial were disposable, she said well, no...I was grossed out at that as well. The instructor (I think) that did come around (a really old woman) seemed more interested in trying to trip up the student with questions than in helping her out, it was very uncomfortable I was not impressed at all. I will never ever go back there. I cannot stress enough how filthy that place is.

I totally agree with otherreview down below. I was a nail/skin student there and I regretted attending this school so much!

As a nail student, I had to buy my own products to use on the clients a lot. As a skin student, there was never enough product to use on clients so we had to constantly ask instructors or fight with other students performing services on clients.

School's filthy and they have assortment of broken down equipment. There's an old washer/dryer in the STUDENTS LOUNGE where we eat lunch, etc. The washer's rusted and you can not pour bleach where it's supposed to go. The floor underneath is rusted, too. Towels/sheets are really old and embarrassing! We had to use a bucket for pedicure services, since there was no "real" pedicure chair. They still have VHS tapes from 80's for instruction and claim that the information is still correct. I wonder technology has advanced in the last 20 years???

When waxing, we're not supposed to double dip, but instructors didn't care. Sheets on the waxing beds are badly stained and as far as I remember, they were never washed.

They supposedly require students to complete 100 hours before they start working on the clients. However, this was never enforced. We were put on the floor way before 100 hours and constantly required to perform services we were not familiar with. It was like "On the job training" all the way. Instructors were never available as they are always sitting in the office, behind the closed door.

If this sounds OK with you, please go ahead and enroll. I wish I knew better when I chose to attend this school. I feel like I wasted so much time and money. I had to go through extensive training when I got my first job after graduating. Oh, BTW, employers do not like it if you're a graduate of this school. I heard from many other students that they had a hard time finding employment.

I was very disappointed in my experience as a student here. The instructors are not helpful at all. They continuously give the students clients without any supervision. I hardly felt confident in my abilities to perform many procedures on my clients because the instructors don't teach these procedures. They give the student a handout and leave the room while the student "practices" on a client as their method of "teaching." The instructors are unapproachable because they sit in their office with the door closed. When asking questions, the answer is "you are jumping ahead" or "let's talk about it later" without addressing any issues.
The instructors do not like students to practice on eachother, because the students would be "wasting product." So the student is left feeling unsure and anxious about her ability to confidently perform a facial properly. Also, the equipment is ALWAYS broken! Students have to hunt down the instructors when product is needed because there is never backstock on any of the products, therefore wasting the student and the client's time.
I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone. I left not feeling confident in my abilities as an esthetician and frustrated that I wasted so much money to read handouts that I could have read online.
