10 Reasons to Join the Beauty Industry
April 22nd 2018
Whether you’re reading this article first or have read my other post 10 Things to Know Before Entering the Beauty Industry, here I will tell you just how wonderful it really is working in the field and why you should too if you’re considering it!
EVERYDAY IS DIFFERENT
Instead of some predictable office job, you are faced with new projects every single day! One day you might just do color, and the next day you may have a variety of things to do; everyday is different making each day super fun to walk into work wondering what you will be doing that day!
YOU ARE CONSTANTLY MEETING NEW PEOPLE
By doing what you do, you meet all sorts of people! Not only that, but talking to them throughout the duration of the service allows you to kind of get to know them more and sometimes you end up making a friend in the process!
YOU NEVER STOP LEARNING
Each day a new hair situation arises so you are never not thinking. You find yourself coming out of your comfort zone a lot and trying new techniques and figuring out what works best for you.
THE INDUSTRY WILL FOREVER BE IN DEMAND
There will never not be a need for hairstylists, therefore there are plenty of jobs available and clients everywhere that need your magic!
YOU ARE ABLE TO FREELY EXPRESS YOURSELF
Unlike normal jobs where there are hair color restrictions, working in a salon there is not! You are freely able to express yourself however way you please whether it be brown hair or rainbow hair! You’re able to have fun & let your personality shine.
YOU GET YOUR HAIR DONE FOR FREE
In my old salon, this was a major perk! Other salons may not be this way, but if it’s not free it’s probably heavily discounted..I would hope?!
DISCOUNTS ON BEAUTY PRODUCTS
By holding a cosmetology license, you are now able to shop the beauty supply stores and get product hella cheaper than you would on amazon with no license!
YOU DETERMINE YOUR SCHEDULE
Depending on what salon you go to, or especially if you choose to go into business for yourself, you hold the power to determine when and how long you want to work.
OPPORTUNITY TO BRANCH OFF
The beauty industry is far more than just hair and makeup! It goes into other fields such as skin, and nails! There are a ton of jobs that are accessible through holding a cosmetology license that could catch your interest or create more variety in your work day like microblading, eyelash extensions, special effects makeup, waxing, etc. Some of these may require some extra education, but it’s an option to keep open!
QUICKER TO JUMP INTO THAN MOST OTHER CAREERS
Although it takes time, money, and hard work to go to school and soak up the knowledge, working in the beauty industry is a lot quicker to get started than other jobs that require years of college, student loans, debt, and your soul just to graduate. This shouldn’t ever be the single reason for going to beauty school, but it definitely is a great part of the experience as a whole!
After reading this, I hope you’re motivated to jump right in on all the action waiting for you! The beauty industry is fun, exciting, and forever changing! One thing that kept me from going for so long was the fact that there are so many hairstylists… but there is only one of me just like there is only ONE OF YOU! So go for it because nobody will ever do hair exactly like you will! Show the industry what you’ve got and give it your all and I promise you, it’s a career worth having!
