You love your career. You get to help your clients feel beautiful. You create art every day. You work in an industry that offers both employment and self-employment that frequently allows people to create a flexible schedule that meets their life-style. But best of all, you get to use your creativity every day with people who appreciate your skill and support. Many of these people you will know for years or even decades. And it’s a skill that can open doors for you all over the world.
Does that sound like your dream career? If you answered yes, becoming a cosmetologist could be the right career move for you! Before you take the leap into this amazing industry, here are 3 things every aspiring cosmetologist should know.
1. There Is So Much Potential
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics as of 3/2017, the occupational outlook for cosmetologists is growing at a healthy rate. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports job growth increasing at a rate of 10%. That means that more jobs are becoming available all the time.
Depending on your personal goals, your future career can vary. Cosmetologists can work in areas like:
They can even go freelance! Freelancing can allow beauty professionals to work as a personal stylist, makeup artist, in their own salon, or all of the above and more. This is just one of the many reasons we find this career so enticing!
2. The Industry is Constantly Changing
Balayage, ombre, color melting, brow waxing, makeup application: all of these services and trends have been around for a while now, but not everyone had heard of them up until a few years ago. With the rise of social media, new beauty trends take off a lot faster than they did before. If you want to work in an industry that constantly keeps you on your toes, learning, and changing, then beauty should be your first choice.
Who knows, you might just set the next hair color trend! There are almost no limits to what you can do!
3. It is Incredibly Rewarding
One of the most fulfilling accomplishments in the world is seeing your client smile. It is hearing them say, “I LOVE my new cut!”. It’s seeing others enjoy what you loved creating. You can literally see your work pay off when your client walks out the door happier than when they came in. There is nothing quite like the rush of creating a bold, unique color for a client who is ready for a magnificent change. The beauty industry is made up of people who are ready to take on the world one bobby pin, one blow out, one color correction at a time, and that could be you.
