Hairdressers are increasingly in demand, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicting that the profession will see 12.7 percent growth by 2022. Attending cosmetology school, however, doesn’t just prepare students to cut hair — hairdressers are also adept at skin treatments, styling, manicures, pedicures, and ensuring that their clients feel good about their new look.
There are many career paths for cosmetology graduates as well, with opportunities to become creative stylists for film shoots and fashion shows, salon owners, product developers, or cosmetology teachers. With a healthy client list or an entertainment position, hairdressers can earn over $50,000 a year. It’s a profession that takes a certain personality type, spatial awareness, and a creative bent. For sociable, warm people who love styling hair, there is no better job out there.
