Fresh estheticians and cosmetologists find it very challenging to write an effective cover letter to impress the hiring manager. They intimidate by the level of competition they face as they enter the job market. Well, that’s where a cover letter comes in.
Being a new graduate/entry level candidate, it is obvious that you do not have professional experience in hand. To overcome this, you should mention your relevant skills and trainings. Use a conventional three paragraph format with bullets or headings in the second paragraph. Whichever layout you choose, make sure the skills you have highlighted are the ones the employer is seeking.

Dear Ms. Jason:
As a recent graduate with valid Florida State license in esthetics, I would like to be considered for the position of Esthetician at Gina’s Salon. In addition to a Cosmetology degree, I also have diploma courses in facial treatments that fit your requirements perfectly.
My following attributes give a solid weight to my profile:
• Comprehensive knowledge of broad range of skin care products and skin types
• Exceptional customer service and communication skills
• Familiar with specialty spa services
In your advertisement you mentioned a need for expertise in hair-styling and skincare. Working at Shine Saloon and Spa as an intern rendered me familiar with general client protocol and professional hair/skin care techniques. With my exceptional communication skills and results-driven approach, I am capable of running facility’s operations without supervision in a one to one session with the client. My training in developing individualized manicures, pedicures and waxing is yet another asset I offer Gina’s Saloon in capacity of a junior esthetician.
The attached resume featuring my profile in greater detail. I excitedly await an interview through which I can demonstrate my attributes and you can determine my esthetic skills and capabilities. I will call you after one week to follow-up.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
