North Carolina's Cosmetology Schools : Cosmetology Career Outlook!


Career in Cosmetology

Do you have excellent people skills, an eye for beauty, and a desire to work in a rapidly growing career? Then you should start looking into the numerous beauty schools throughout the U.S. In just nine months, you could begin a career as a cosmetologist, hair stylist, or barber. If you want to work as a manicurist, pedicurist, or skin care technician (also called an esthetician or asthetician), your training might only take a month or two.

Those few weeks to nine months of school are vital in the cosmetology field, since you must be licensed to work in any of these professions. To qualify for that license you typically need a diploma from a State-licensed cosmetology school.

Why North Carolina Cosmetology Schools?

Only a few states have reciprocity agreements for cosmetology licenses, which means you should attend school and earn your license in the state where you want to work. North Carolina offers several advantages to cosmetologists. For instance, if you want to work as a nail technician, then Durham, North Carolina, is one of the top paying metropolitan areas in the country. Nail techs in Durham earn $32,160 annually, compared to the national average salary of $22,040. The same is also true for a hair stylist in Durham, where the annual salary is $38,990. That's far more than the national salary for hair stylists of $26,660.

Along with these high wages, North Carolina offers numerous attractions to residents and visitors. In fact, it has become the sixth most visited state in the county.
