Business Description

Great opportunity to own an accredited school offering programs in Esthetics, Permanent Makeup, and Cosmetology along with a popular spa. The business is located in an established and affluent part of Northern Virginia. The school is licensed to operate in Virginia by The Department of Professional Occupational Regulation and attracts students from across the country and around the world. The spa has an elegant and warm atmosphere and has been serving clients in the DC metro area for over 20 years.

This unique entity combines two revenue streams into one business. On the vocational side, students receive theoretical instruction and practical training in the nature and health of the skin care and esthetics treatments including make-up, body treatments, waxing, permanent cosmetic tattooing, aromatherapy, the art of cosmetology and nail work. The school is authorized by the US Department of Justice to enroll international students and issue I-20 (Certificate of Eligibility for Non-immigrant Student Status) visas and approved to help international students obtain M-1 visas. Each student leaves prepared to take their Virginia State Board Licensing test. The school graduated 150 students in the past three years with 100% of the Cosmetology students, 80% of the Basic Esthetics students and 87% of the Master Esthetics students employed upon graduation.

The day spa part of the business offers an extensive range of services including massage, facial and body treatments, electrolysis, waxing, permanent make-up and hand & foot treatments. This provides the next owner significant upside and growth potential with two promising revenue streams. This is the perfect opportunity for a practitioner, educator, or entrepreneur to take over a turn-key operation with an impressive track record.
