Ted+Gibson+Carlos+Campos+Backstage+Fall+09+M1RmSHnJ6ttl

Thinking about becoming a hairstylist, but keep hearing your friends and family’s outdated opinion on the beauty industry! We know there is a lot of myths when it comes to working in the beauty industry, and  The Salon Professional Academy in San Jose, a Redken Diamond Academy is here to show you the light to a stylish career. We have educators from different aspects of the beauty industry, from runway makeup and hair, film, print media and working for top corporate companies. They will show you that you can be successful, but you need to ask yourself, how hard are you willing to work?  Take Ted Gibson, celebrity hairstylist and brand ambassador. He began his career with humble beginnings, and now he holds the world in his hands! Check out the top 4 beauty myths busted by Ted Gibson Below.

Top 4 Beauty Myths Busted By Ted Gibson

What about Earnings? My parents worried that I wouldn’t earn a nice living in the beauty business, but I’ve found there is no earnings cap. Like many careers, success as a hairstylist is based on desire and work ethic. You can use your beauty school license to work in a salon, start a small business or work in a corporate environment.

What’s the demand? As long as hair and fingernails continue to grow, there will be a need for beauty professionals. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists will increase by about 10 percent through 2024: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/personal-care-and-service/barbers-hairdressers-and-cosmetologists.htm

Who hires beauty school graduates?Beauty careers are available in my hometown of Killeen, Texas, my adopted town of New York City and everywhere in between! Beauty careers can’t be sent offshore. You simply can’t get a facial on the Internet or a haircut from a call center. And salons are just one place where beauty professionals work. You’ll also find us in day spas, resorts, backstage at fashion and entertainment events, in product development labs and in publishing!

Making a Difference. What I love most about beauty is its transformative nature. I can change someone’s outlook with a great shampoo and massage. In my salon, I see beauty professionals changing people’s lives every day, and of course on TLC’s “What Not to Wear,” I work with other beauty professionals to help people reinvent their appearance and change their life every week.
