River Valley Esthetics Institute

River Valley Esthetics Institute

River Valley Esthetics Institute was founded on the idea that a school should offer more than education – it should prepare the student with the knowledge, training and confidence that will lead them to a rewarding, life-long career. RVEI distinguishes itself by offering state-of-the-art education that is at the forefront of the industry. Whether it’s from beginner to professional or professional to master, our highly trained staff at RVEI will guide students to the next level of their career.


The School’s program has been specifically created to provide the required training under the State of Connecticut’s new license requirements for Nail Technicians, Estheticians and for Lash services which goes into effect years 2020 and 2021.



RVEI offers premiere education that is above and beyond industry standards. RVEI’s goal is to raise the bar of education to create the most prepared, qualified and career-oriented professionals who through their selected education will leave the Institute superiorly trained and ready for a position as a nail technician, esthetician, salon owner, manufacturer’s representative and/or educator.
