Spa Academy's director of education, Veronica Lynne-Swirsky, taps into more than two decades of experience as she leads a team of professional educators in training a new generation of estheticians. In their sleek salon and spa, instructors and students work side by side. Teachers might give clients mani-pedis or full sets of acrylic nails as their students apply makeup, wax away unwanted body hair, or revitalize skin with facials. And even though their services are discounted, students focus on lavishing clients with a quality that rivals what's offered by their already-certified counterparts or by those newfangled robo-aestheticians.
