Catherine Hinds Institute


Our school envisions the esthetician, also known as skin care specialists, as a primary force in skin health, integrating traditional and whole health care practices in a variety of settings. Today’s professional esthetician must be prepared to meet a far greater demand for knowledge in the vast area of wellness. The Catherine Hinds Institute is prepared to meet that demand in our skin care training programs.

We pride ourselves on training our students using the latest and most advanced skin care technology available. The esthetics field is one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. The growth the esthetics industry is experiencing, along with an education from our Institute, has helped to create financial independence through the lucrative field of esthetics. As a result, our graduates have found promising careers as skin care specialists, make-up artists and lash artists. They work in various settings, such as salons, med spas, traditional day spas, doctors’ offices and resorts. Many successful spa owners across the country are proud to say that they got their start at our school.


The skin care programs offered at the Catherine Hinds Institute are the direct result of years of research and development in the field of skin care. Our skin care programs have been carefully designed to meet the current consumer demand for personalized care and therapeutic treatment by highly skilled skin care professionals. The Catherine Hinds Institute currently offers 2 Skin Care programs: The Core Esthetics 600 Hour Program and the Master Esthetics 900 Hour Program.


Core Esthetics Program 600 Hour Program prepares the student for the Massachusetts State Board of Cosmetology Examination in Esthetics. This program provides the student with all necessary basic information, as required by the State, to operate as an entry level esthetician performing American or European Facial treatments, make-up artistry, collagen blanket and vitamin c facials and hot wax epilation techniques. The Core esthetics curriculum prepares the student to perform comprehensive facial esthetic services and advanced age management. It provides proficiency in a number of esthetic treatments, such as microdermabrasion, hydrafacial, ultrasonic and myolift treatments, as well as extraction techniques, lash extensions and fantasy make-up.

Master Esthetics 900 Hour Program provides an overview of what can be expected in an advanced clinical setting. Students can expect to develop an understanding of advanced acne and age management treatments such as microneedling, dermaplaning, SkinSpa and IPL treatments, as well as lash lifts, corrective make-up and special effects make-up.
