Are you creative and a huge fan of all things related to the beauty industry? If so, you might be wondering what kind of job you can pursue that combines your interest in the beauty industry and your creativity. To make a living off your natural talents and your interests, you may want to consider a career in cosmetology, esthiology, or as a nail technician.

A career in those fields begins with the right training. To work in one of those niches, you need to complete training at a specialized school like the State College of Beauty Culture. After you finish your training, you’ll have the skills and knowledge that are necessary to take the state licensing exam. Once you pass that exam and earn your license, you’ll be ready to launch a career in your chosen field.

When you attend a beauty school, you’ll quickly realize that you’ll have multiple career paths open to you after you get your state license. No matter which path you choose to follow, your career will engage your creativity and spark your interest every day.

Cosmetology Careers

Hair Stylists

Some people who earn their cosmetology license decide to work as hairstylists. From master barbers to salon stylists, hair braiders and more, the type of hairstylist you want to become is entirely up to you.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities in this vertical will increase by eight percent between 2018 and 2028, which is a rate that’s faster than average.

Makeup Artists

While you may think being a makeup artist is self-explanatory, it isn’t necessarily. Although a lot of makeup artists use makeup to improve a person’s appearance for special events like weddings or proms, many do much more. Some makeup artists literally use cosmetic products to create works of art, transforming an actor’s appearance into a dramatic, unrecognizable character for a performance on stage, film, or print.

Pursue a Career in Nail Technology

If you want to focus solely on nails, you may decide to work as a nail technician or manicurist. Nail technicians typically perform manicures and pedicures daily. While many consumers get their nails done for aesthetic reasons, others have them professionally clipped due to medical reasons like having diabetes.

Although nail technicians do manicures and pedicures, they often offer more than standard services. Nail art, cuticle care, and hand and foot massages are some of the specialized services a nail technician might offer.

Positions in Esthiology

If you want to focus on skincare, you might want to work as an esthiologist. In general, there are two positions you can pursue in this niche, traditional esthetician and medical aesthetician.

Traditional Esthetician

Also referred to as “skincare specialists,” traditional estheticians are often found in places like salons, spas, fitness centers, and luxury resorts. Estheticians cleanse skin using various techniques, such as facials, exfoliation, and massage. In addition, estheticians temporarily remove hair, examine skin health, and make recommendations about the products that are best for clients with different types of skin.

Medical Aesthetician

Medical aestheticians are commonly referred to as paramedical or clinical aestheticians. Like traditional estheticians, these professionals focus on skincare but they take a more medical-based approach to their work, as the various names for their position suggest. While medical aestheticians also help people cleanse and moisturize their skin and choose the right products based on their skin type, they also treat skin that’s been damaged in some way, such as being burned in a fire or scarred during a surgery. Medical aestheticians typically work in healthcare facilities like hospitals and clinics.
