What our Portland Basic Esthetician students are saying

I love this school for so many reasons, but my favorite part of the day is Carol! ❤️ She is always available at the front desk and helps clients and students all day! I love the welcoming that comes from all of the instructors and other students! Truly this is the most supportive group! 😊

Madison Kamakeeaina

By far the best educational experience I have received. The entire environment is welcoming, friendly and filled with good energy. Instructors and Staff are enthusiastic about teaching and happy to help with any questions or issues. Alongside making sure each instructor is teaching theory that they are knowledgeable and excel in, allowing for students to get the most thorough education possible. They make sure you feel empowered and secure coming into the esthetics world.

Mariah Saiz

I graduated in November 2022. I feel so fortunate that I chose Spectrum Advanced Aesthetics for my education. It is evident that all the instructors are passionate about teaching here and they love their jobs. This speaks volumes to Mary the director.  The level of training I received was top notch. During my first job interview I was told that my school stood out on my resume as they have had great experiences with students coming from Spectrum. Now that I am working in the field I hear many stories about how awful some training programs out there were for my colleagues. You get what you pay for and I am 100% happy with my decision to attend. If I go on to Advanced Aesthetics one day, there is no doubt I will attend here.

I went to spectrum for my basic esthetics and this is such a great school! All the teachers there are great and are willing to help you even if you are not in their class. The school is also up to the latest technologies and trends so it never feels like what you are learning is outdated. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to go into basic esthetics or advanced aesthetics.
