Benefits of Cosmetology


Apart from the array of jobs cosmetology offers such as a hairdresser and stylist, manicurist and pedicurist, makeup-artist, etc., there are many benefits to being a cosmetologist such as having a creative outlet, a social work environment, and the flexibility to choose how and whom you work for.


  • People in the cosmetology field are able to express their creativity every day. They have to assess individual situations such as damaged hair and find solutions that let their creative juices flow. They keep up with trends and styles and apply those to their clients. Cosmetologists are rewarded not only monetarily but also with the satisfaction of their clients and the satisfaction of creating a new look.

Social Work Environment

  • Cosmetology also offers the chance to be social. Cosmetologists have to interact with their clients, co-workers and bosses, if they have them, on a day-to-day basis. Many salons are very casual, and the conversations reflect that casualness, ranging from gossip to world events. Most salons have music playing, and sometimes even televisions, which keeps the environment fun.


  • One of the best things about being a cosmetologist is the flexibility and having the opportunity to become an entrepreneur. With hard work, dedication and a good client base, a cosmetologist can start his or her own business, such as a hair salon or spa, nail salon, etc. They can make their own hours by setting appointments that suit them. Even if having a personal business is out of the realistic realm, most cosmetologists will still have their own client base, be able to set their hours, and most will be able to work as much as they wish, all while working for someone else.
