What Happens After Cosmetology School?

There are reports every day about the “state of the economy” and “economic recovery”, so how do you know that graduating cosmetology school is the right thing to do?

The really good news is that according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, all cosmetology related career openings are expected to rise in number – even faster than most other job categories.

The BLS goes on to say “projected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations. Opportunities for entry-level workers should be favorable, while job candidates at high-end establishments will face keen competition.” (There is always a little competition, isn’t there?) Most of us know that the first step in making a choice is figuring out what you love to do. Cosmetology schools teach us how to make people beautiful or at least make them feel good about themselves.

So what are your choices? Is there more to being a beauty professional than makeup, nails, and hair? Sure. There are actually plenty of other choices for cosmetology school graduates. Consider: Cosmetology instructor, -coordinator, -manager, -consultant, -stylist, -journalists, -magazine writer, -designer, and the list goes on. Cosmetology school graduates become show directors, prop consultants, celebrity consultants, and more.

Deciding on a specific path might be a simple or complicated choice for you; it really depends on you, the job market where you want to live, and your ability to go out there an “impress the judges” so to speak. It might be important for you to make this decision during your first years at cosmetology school. This gives plenty of time to take any special electives for the career you are interested in and it gives you plenty of time to answer that question: What happens after cosmetology school? Cosmetology schools prepare you for a number of occupations so the rest is up to you.
