Cosmetology Career Considerations


Students interested in pursuing a career in Cosmetology or a related field should consider all aspects of such a decision. To become a Cosmetologist you must: Have dexterity and a sense of form, balance and color. Enjoy working with the public and be able to follow their directions. Stay abreast of the latest styles and industry techniques. Work hard to establish a clientele in order to reach your desired income. Learn business skills to promote yourself and the spa's/salons you will work in. Be committed to finishing your education.


Cosmetology students should be aware that:

The work can be demanding, (standing with your hands at shoulder level or leaning over a nail technicians station). An investment may be required for advertising and promotions such as printing business cards or a website. There will be exposure to various chemicals and fumes which could cause allergic reactions. The practice of safety and sanitation is essential for effective and successful performance within the industry. Methods of compensation may vary including straight salary, salary plus commission, straight commission, sliding scale commission, retail commission and independent contracting (renting space and equipment from an existing spa/salon).
