We can help you choose the right career path in the beauty & wellness industries
A hairstylist offers a wide range of beauty services, such as shampooing, cutting, coloring, and styling of hair. They may advise clients on how to care for their hair at home.
A colorist is someone who specializes in hair color services and is generally hired by a salon with a color department. Clients then go to another stylist in the salon for additional services. Most colorists take advanced training courses and/or attend color seminars. The color business is also uniquely lucrative. Many color services command substantial fees.
Teaching is a rewarding career. You get to share what you learned working in the industry with the next generation of future industry professionals (and shape the future!)
Barbers cut, trim, shampoo, and style hair mostly for male clients. They also may fit hairpieces and offer scalp treatments and facial shaving. In many States, barbers are licensed to color, bleach, and highlight hair, and can offer permanent-wave services.
A salon/spa owner is responsible for all salon operations, physical and financial. Most salon owners have had some business management experience before investing in a salon. For the individual to purchase a salon, a capital investment and a good credit rating are required.
