high-end salon

1. High-End Salon

Modern, sleek, innovative, shiny, and a place to call home! High-end salons are common places for cosmetologists to work. You could be performing services like haircuts and colors as well as facials and nail services. Typically, fancier salons can ask more for their services than usual, and if you rent your booth, you can set your own schedule.

2. Editorial

As a cosmetologist, you can potentially work in print or digital advertising. Wherever models are used, a cosmetologist is probably there, too. Hairstylists and makeup artists work alongside fashion designers to create the perfect look for magazines, commercials, or a variety of other media. Cosmetologists may have the chance to see their work on the pages of a magazine!


3. Personal Stylist

You can go freelance as a cosmetologist! That means you’re your own boss, and you can pick your clients. You can also have a greater control over your schedule. Some people become personal stylists for big days like weddings, and others opt to pursue a Hollywood dream as a stylist to the stars. This job takes a lot of drive and talent, so get to work!

4. Salon Owner

Cosmetologists who also want to be entrepreneurs can run their own salon. Owners control employees, products, PR, and other business aspects. They can also work behind the chair if they choose. This is a great path for those who are equally as intrigued with business as they are beauty. It’s a career option that can provide the best of both worlds!
