Why Cosmetology is Right for You

Are you considering a career in Cosmetology? There’s no shortage of ideas, suggestions, and advice out there about what to do if you want to be successful. Probably the most important thing to do first and foremost is to fall in love with your work. You know, the whole “love what you do, and you’ll never work a day in your life” adage? A simple but profoundly true statement. So, ask yourself, “What do I love doing?” If you’ve asked yourself that as you’re looking in the mirror reinventing your third hairstyle this week, maybe the answer is staring you in the face! Could bringing signature styles to the heads of many be the career that gets you out of bed in the morning? If that sounds right up your alley, here are some more reasons a future in cosmetology might be one to consider.

Virtually unlimited creativity

Cosmetologists aren’t just hair cutters. They’re talented artists who get to invent and reinvent styles over and over. And the best part – you’re earning a living by making people look and feel great!

No one-dimensional path here

Cosmetologists are not confined to the same chair every day. If you love travel, you could take your skills to a cruise line, become a beauty brand rep, or work as an event stylist. The point is, you’ve got more than one option. If you’re interested in the business side of the beauty industry, you could even open your own salon!

Hands-on skills may make you irreplaceable

There are a lot of areas where technology can replace the people element, but this is definitely not one of them. Your skills and your craft are in your own two hands!

Work when you want to work

 The nature of cosmetology requires flexible schedules. After all, people work at different times of the day and night and need stylists who can accommodate their schedules. That means you can build your book of clients around a schedule that suits your lifestyle!

Fast track to earning in the workplace

Typical cosmetology programs can be completed in far less time than a traditional 4-year university education. Most cosmetology programs can be done in less than 9 months, putting you in the workplace much faster to start earning faster.

Even though the world has undergone many changes as a result of the global pandemic, the beauty industry is still thriving. So, why not plan for your future?
