Cosmetology was once a career option looked down upon and described as an option only for those who couldn’t finish school. Times have changed however and more people are finding the many great careers available to those who wish to pursue the beauty arts through one of the many cosmetology schools available in your local area. By going to one of these schools, they receive hands on experience and become state certified in one of several areas of cosmetology. This way, they have a potential career the minute they step out of school and most find that many businesses are waiting for them.
Aside from hairdressing and several other salon type careers, you have several other career options available after graduation. You could work as a makeup artist in several areas from freelance to film and television studio departments. There is also the option of cosmetics sales either working on your own or even through a major department store or even working as a cosmetics rep through a supplier. Who better to know makeup than a cosmetologist when it comes to sales?
Speaking of salon careers, there has been much light shed on cosmetology and makeover arts thanks to shows like Jerseyliscious which although a bit comical, really make stars out of the great makeup and hair specialists who either operate or own their own salon businesses. With experience and good clients, you could also do the same. It all begins with training though and only through a good cosmetology school will you get the help in taking those first steps towards your career.
