If you’ve ever had a bad haircut, horrible manicure or a botched “makeover” – then you know what a difference a good person can make. While there are many people who love makeup or spend hours watching hair tutorials on YouTube, there are some things you want to leave to the professionals. That’s where cosmetologists come in.

Cosmetologists are the faces behind a $265 billion global beauty industry. Behind every model walking a catwalk, bride walking down the aisle or man walking down the street is a team of people dedicated to making them look, and feel, their best. Cosmetologists are trained and licensed to perform cosmetic treatments on your hair, skin and nails.

The perks of being a cosmetologist? There are a ton of career opportunities. Extending far beyond a beauty shop, students have taken their skills to five-star spas, top medical facilities and highly-coveted makeup brands. This allows for job placement flexibility and the potential to travel.

This also allows cosmetologists to meet and build relationships with clientele from all walks of life. Cosmetologists also have the freedom of creating their own schedule, allowing for time with family and friends. Finally, cosmetologists are able to make others feel good about themselves, while working in a field they’re passionate about.
