What Is an Electrologist?

By: C. Jeanine Fulton

Category: Students

The Make Up: Electrolysis is the process of permanently removing hair from the face and body using an electric current which destroys tissue. Private offices and salons hire electrologists as employees or contractors, and many operate businesses independently.

Regimen: The clientele base of an electrologist includes both men and women. Women who have excessive facial hair are common clients of this service. Male clients often request their beards to be thinned and for other unwanted hair to be removed. Electrologists also shape eye brows and change hairlines. Generally they prefer to schedule appointments in advance. Often clients are scheduled for a series of sessions to achieve the best possible outcome.

Foundation: High school diploma or equivalent

-Electrology certification program and license

-Current knowledge of hair removal procedures

-Good communications skills

Making the Cut: The more training and education a person has, the more marketable he or she will be. To be hired by a salon, spa, or electrolysis firm, take continuing education classes, attend shows, and learn about new products and services.
