Why You Should Consider Attending One of New York's Fine Beauty Schools

How Beauty Schools Can Benefit You

Want to take a bite out of the Big Apple? Training for a career as a hair stylist, manicurist, pedicurist, barber, or skin care technician can be a great place to start. Many beauty schools only require that you've completed a GED or traditional or online high school diploma, and then in just nine months, you could be ready to earn your license as a cosmetologist, or you could become a nail technician or esthetician (sometimes spelled asthetician) in far less time through campus-based as well as online schools.

Graduates of beauty schools should also have excellent job prospects. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of nail techs is expected to grow by 28 percent from 2006-2016, employment for estheticians should grow by 34 percent, and employment for makeup artists is expected to grow a whopping 40 percent. It's a relatively small field, however, meaning you do need the right training to get your foot in the door.

New York Cosmetology Schools

If you've ever thought of becoming a theatrical or performance makeup artist, then New York is the place to attend school. Makeup artists in New York earn $57,760 annually, well above the national average salary of $39,020, according to BLS 2008. If you work within the New York-White Plains-Wayne Metropolitan Area, you can earn even more: $66,410 annually.

New York is also home to some of the finest salons and spas in the U.S., meaning students at New York cosmetology schools can train with some of the very best in their professions. Even living outside of New York City, you have easy access to its culture, amazing food, and numerous attractions.
