Do you want a job that allows you to express your creativity?

Careers in Cosmetology

Depending on where they work, cosmetologists can perform a number of services. Manicures, pedicures, haircuts, hairstyling, and hair coloring are just a few skills they can learn. During our Basic Cosmetology Course, our students can learn all these skills above plus:

  • Scalp Treatments
  • Facials
  • Makeup Application
  • Lash Tinting
  • Brow Tinting
  • Brow Arching
  • Shop Management
  • Chemical Hair Relaxing
  • And More!

Licensed cosmetologists could pursue careers working in careers and places like spas and salons, but you may not realize many cosmetologists work in nursing homes, resorts, and even online.

People with disabilities or people who can’t style their own hair and makeup call on cosmetologists to do the job. Cosmetologists can also become wig stylists, for those who need hair done that isn’t even their own. Perhap a celebrity stylist, runway makeup artist or online beauty blogger could also be in your future. Cosmetologists are trained beauty professionals after all, and many call on their expertise for all kinds of events from weddings to fashion shows.

Cosmetologists are bursting with ideas about the latest trends, are outgoing, hardworking, and all around awesome! Does this profession sound like something you’d want to pursue? Check out our program to learn more about the requirements to become a cosmetologist.

Careers in Esthetics

Ahh, spa days! Many estheticians find themselves working in peaceful settings, performing facials, makeup application, and hair removal. Our students can learn those services as well as:

  • Light Therapy
  • Skin Toning
  • Sales

Estheticians can potentially pursue careers in spas and resorts, but also on cruise ships, specialty hotels, clinics, retail shops and online. The skin is your largest organ, and therefore has some of the largest amount of career options.

Estheticians help their clients achieve beautiful skin, and that can be through many different methods. Some focus on products and treatments, but you could also use massage, light therapy, and hair removal as part of the process. Dermatologists sometimes turn to estheticians to recommend the best beauty products and superficial skin treatments.

Esthetician’s are very often considered empathetic, good at listening, friendly, and just amazing all around! Does working with someone on their skincare routine sound like what you want to do? You could help your clients glow! Check out our esthetics program to see if it might be a good fit for you.
