Are you looking to start your career off with a pow and try something completely different than working in a salon? Here are just a few of the many “different” jobs you might find in the beauty industry.
If you love to use your creativity to create dramatic makeup looks, maybe drama is just what you should be doing! California is number one in the country for the number of makeup artists it employs, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Could you imagine working behind the scenes in television, movies and theatre? That’s just what makeup artists do as they transform actors into characters for shows and commercials. If you’d like to know how to become a professional makeup artist, it all starts with training in cosmetology. But makeup artist isn’t the only job you could find with a license in cosmetology.
When you think of a hair salon do you still envision clients getting their hair washed, cut and colored? Well then you don’t know dry bar! Dry bar stylists offer blow outs at stop-in hair salons that only provide the single service of a blow dry. And dry bars are in big demand, considered among the 4 salon trends to watch for in 2014. Cosmetologists who have the skills to perform these blow-outs give their clients a wow look in a short time. There’s no cutting or coloring, but there is plenty of behind-the-chair experience and client interaction.
Do you already know the importance of good skincare? Estheticians help people look and feel their beautiful best –and they don’t just offer their services at the local salon.

By training to become a licensed esthetician, you’ll learn skills you can bring with you wherever you travel! Have you ever wanted to take a cruise?
