Welcome to my Happy Esthetician website.

My name is Diane Buccola.  I have been a licensed esthetician in California since 1999, and I became an NCEA Certified Esthetician in 2008.  I am a former spa owner and solo esthetician, as well as an author, speaker and consultant. (More details can be found on my “About Diane” page.)

In my many years as a licensed esthetician, I have seen some major career-altering developments, most important of which is the proliferation of our professional products being sold online.  That one is a game-changer, and if you haven’t adjusted your esthetics business accordingly, you should.  I’ve got several resources to help you, one of which is SpaBizBoard.com which I created in 2006.  SBB was one of the first online message boards (long before Facebook, Twitter, etc.)  SpaBizBoard is a private subscription site for spa professionals and has become a well-respected resource for estheticians in particular.

I have written a couple of books and several articles, all of which you can read about here on my website.  Next, I will launch a series of educational videos which will only be available to licensed estheticians. We are working on the technology right now and as soon as we have the first few videos uploaded, I will let you know.

I love the Spa Business and I love being an Esthetician.  I think the work that we do is important.  I believe that we are all in this together, so we must support each other.  And that is what motivates me every day.

Thanks for stopping by!
