3 Reasons to Choose a Career in Cosmetology

Choosing your profession is among the most important decisions you’ll ever make. There are many factors to take into consideration: Do you love your chosen work? Do you make enough money to meet your needs? Do you feel that you’re contributing to society?

While cosmetology is not for everyone, it meets all of the aforementioned qualifications and is one of the most exciting and fastest growing industries in America. Here are just three of the many reasons why cosmetology is one of the hottest careers in the job market today:

  1. Earning potential: from shampoo artists to make-up artists, cosmetologists can earn between $24,000 and $49,000 per year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. In fact, in many states, cosmetologists are in demand – This means that, even when people in other disciplines are struggling to find work, anyone with a degree in cosmetology is a quick hire.
  2. Flexibility: Your beauty school experience will open up a wide variety of potential careers, including: makeup artistry, skin care and esthetics, nail care, salon ownership and management, theatrical makeup design, TV/Magazine/Movie hair and makeup design, teaching, and more.
  3. Fulfillment: A career in hair and makeup design means the opportunity to work with people every day. You’ll share the secrets to achieving the look that your clients want. And there are few things in life that equal the satisfaction of raising a client’s self-esteem and image by revealing and highlighting their natural beauty.
