Cosmetology Graduates Have Exciting Career Options

Updated on June 29, 2013

Every year thousands of students enroll in beauty schools to acquire cosmetology education and learn skills in doing hair and makeup. However, at the end of the course, most students can't decide which area they would like to specialize in.

The cosmetology industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that is growing steadily all over the world. Moreover, since it is an integral part of the fashion industry, it is a no-brainer that in the coming years, there will be a huge demand for cosmetologists.

Training in cosmetology provides an enormous opportunity to individuals to grow in various areas such as hair styling, hair cutting and coloring, makeup, manicure and pedicure, nails, massage, and more. Licensed cosmetologists can also join the corporate world if they like working in the management track. Even teaching is a good career option for cosmetologists!

It won't be wrong to say that cosmetology graduates have exciting career options after their school. However, to grow as a professional and earn name and fame, you have to continue cosmetology education even after school. Learning should never stop just because you've passed out of school.

If you’re thinking about pursuing a career in hair and beauty industry, there are various job opportunities in this field and most of them are exciting. Since this industry breathes creativity and innovation, you must be artistic and be able to visualize how a particular style or color will look even before applying it.

Creative cosmetologists often find themselves working with celebrities – doing their hair or makeup. Various hairdressers like Ted Gibson, Nick Arrojo, and Kim Vo have achieved fame as a celebrity hairstylist.

If you are persuasive and like selling things, you can easily get hired by top beauty product companies in their sales department. With good performance, you will be rewarded with attractive commissions and bonuses.

Those of you, who consider themselves less creative or persuasive than others, can either become a cosmetology instructor at a private beauty school or community college, or you can also work in the non-profit sector, perhaps as part of your State licensing board.


As cosmetology graduates you have exciting career opportunities. Find your real passion in this industry and try to learn about it every day. Improve your art and hone your skills and with hard work and perseverance, you can achieve your dreams and make a name for yourself in the cosmetology industry.
