Student Testimonials

?I got hired just two days after graduating from TSII. Thanks to Ms. Ronnow for introducing me to a spa owner, who was looking for an esthetician. I found a love for waxing at school. I now specialize in full body waxing & created my own protocol for vajacials! I also specialize in facials, brow tinting and lash lifts/tinting. My new boss is amazing to work for and gives me my freedom as an esthetician! This allows me to get creative with the treatments my work provides! I?m so grateful for the knowledge I gained at TSII! Together with my class, our amazing experiences, my journey to become an esthy, and the challenges that naturally came with going to school and what we went through, we conquered it together! I absolutely love what I do and I am learning everyday how to be better at my job.??


?I graduated from TSII in March of 2019 and my experience in this industry has been more than I ever expected. Since graduation I?ve been working at Boldface in Ward doing lash extensions and also at Honolulu Spa and Wellness in Ala Moana doing facials. What brought me to become an Esthetician was that I always wanted to learn more about the skin and how to take better care of it. This industry is always changing so you can never stop learning new skills! I?m glad I attended TSII for the knowledge, tools, skills, and mentors they provided. Thank you to Mary and Lieren for the opportunity!?


?I completed TSII esthetics program March 2018 and instantly landed a job at Fine Line Studio in Pearl City, HI. I recently just made a year here and I?ve been loving it, I specialize in Brazilian waxing, Facials, and Facial Treatments.?TSII prepared and guided me to be the Esthetician I am today. I?ve learned so much, from learning basic and advanced treatments/protocols in facials and waxing, proper etiquette, resume writing and mock interviews. I definitely gained a lot from this program and it shows, because not only have I become an esthetician, but also a better person overall.? I will forever be grateful for TSII and their loving staff. They?re motivating and truly want the best for their students.?


??You would think going to school for 5 days a week for 6 months and sitting in traffic for 2-3 hours every time sounds like a complete drag. Put yourself in my shoes, as someone who was always intrigued in all things skincare and beauty at a very young age. TSII helped me rediscover the side of me who loved just that. I did not regret my decision for enrolling one bit! During my time there I got to meet an amazing group of individuals, connect with clients, and expand my knowledge in all things skincare. Although this route can be a very individualized profession, I got an overwhelming amount of support from my instructors and my fellow classmates. I would like to thank everyone at TSII again because they prepared and allowed me the experience to work in two different spas.?


“I went to TSII while living in Hawaii. I since have moved to Savannah has recently moved to Utah and I am now working at Dr. Marion Plastic Surgery and Med Spa. I am a master esthetician, certified laser technician, and is training to become a medical assistant. I often do laser hair removal or assisting Dr. Marion in office procedures and consultations. I love my job and I am so grateful to The Skin Institute International? for preparing me for my dream job?


Spa Guest Testimonials

Great facials/microdermabrasion. I almost fall asleep every time, it’s so relaxing. They incorporate massage and aromatherapy into the facial, so the entire experience feels so, so good. Highly recommend this place. And the girl at the front desk is always super friendly. Plus, since they are students, the prices can’t be beat. But I feel like since they’re students, they’re super meticulous and pay attention to every detail, so the facial is even better than from a professional.

Just a short note that I’m a regular here for facials and microderms and the services and estheticians across the board are all excellent and well-trained. I would consider myself a spa connoisseur & have been to a lot of establishments so I can say with confidence that Lieren and the fine folks at The Skin Institute are top of class in my book.

Cecily Ching

had a great experience at The Skin Institute! Was a very great experience and I will definitely have to go back for another facial. Such a professional environment and very welcoming and friendly staff. Best place ever.

Mary, Lieren, staff and students are the best thing to happen to spas and spa goers. The technique they teach their students is not like anything you?ve experienced on a facial table. Treat yourself. You will become a regular.
