This is the perfect time to begin planning steps to maximize your talent. Because of technology and globalization, opportunities for beauty professionals are more diverse than years past. Beauty professionals are choosing to continue their education by pursuing college degrees and enrolling in business certificate programs to support their entrepreneurial ventures and aspirations. Also, high school students who chose the traditional 4-year college route are graduating with degrees, yet choosing to reenroll in school to follow a career within the beauty industry.
We all learn in beauty school that professionals can determine their salary. I remember my cosmetology instructor telling our class in her raspy demonstrative tone, “It’s up to you; don’t depend on anyone else! Give yourself a raise!”
This statement is true, but takes hard work and tenacity. A career move up the beauty industry ladder requires continued education. Expose yourself by exploring the various types of beauty career options. There are 8 beauty career genres: entrepreneurial, freelance, educational, salon and spa, marketing, sales, creative, and trend.
