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.
The count down is on!
