Licensed cosmetologists are in high demand, whether they become salon stylists, manicurists or makeup artists.

It’s said that hair and nails keep growing even after you die, and the eternal nature of these two things will ensure that you always have a job. No matter the economy or the state of your wallet, people will always need to get their hair cut. Earning a license in cosmetology is a sound investment, no matter how you use it.

Although most people think of cosmetologists as hairstylists, many more career options are available to a qualified graduate of cosmetology school. With the basic training on hair, nails and skin that you’ll get in cosmetology school, you can draw on your other strengths to forge a unique and rewarding career. Those with writing skills might find positions as health and beauty editors or columnists, while cosmetologists with experience in fashion design or merchandising can become personal stylists to actresses or celebrities. Even if you don’t excel at the technical skills you’ll learn in cosmetology college, you can still open your own salon, join the faculty at your local beauty school, or join a cosmetics or haircare company as an educator or product developer. If you think creatively about it, careers in beauty are everywhere you look, not just in the eye of the beholder.
