Why Cosmetology and Barbering are Favored Occupations

Did you know?

  • People share more with their hairdresser or barber than they do with their counselor or psychologist.
  • The global beauty market is worth an estimated $265 billion USD. (That’s billion with a B.)
    In 2012, U.S. barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists held about 856,200 jobs. Nearly half were self-employed.
  • The number of U.S. industry operators (cosmetologists) is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 5.5%, reaching 1.3 million operators by 2019.
  • Overall employment of barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 13 percent from 2012 to 2022.
  • The 10 best U.S. markets for cosmetologists: Louisville, Minneapolis, Charleston, San Diego, Dallas, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Miami, New York City.

Being a cosmetologist, nail tech, mobile hairdresser, makeup artist, eyebrow/eyelash artist, weaveologist, or traveling barber gives you the license to create and service your clients whenever, wherever! The beauty and style industry is THE BEST industry because you have the opportunity to effect someone’s self-confidence. Be confident in knowing that there will always be a demand for hairdressers, barbers, makeup artists, estheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians. In fact, hairdressers ranks #10 as “best social services jobs” based on a U.S. News & World report. 😉 In addition, beauty was one industry that grew during the economic downturn. Think about that!

Based on the study commissioned by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists is expected to grow more than 10% from 2014 to 2024—which is faster than the average 7% growth for all other U.S. occupations!

There’s so much more to what we do than cutting hair,” says Scott J. Buchanan, president of Scott J. Salons & Spas in New York City and the 2013-2014 chairman of the Professional Beauty Association. “We also get to change people’s lives and make them feel good about themselves.

We couldn’t agree more!

    Thanks for your tips. One thing I have noticed is that often banks in addition to financial institutions have in mind the spending habits of consumers and as well understand that most people max out and about their own credit cards around the holiday seasons. They wisely take advantage of this fact and begin flooding the inbox plus snail-mail box along with hundreds of no-interest APR credit cards offers immediately after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that when you are like 98 of American open public, you’ll hop at the possiblity to consolidate consumer credit card debt and move balances to 0 interest rate credit cards.
