Ohio Beauty Schools : Cosmetology Career Outlook!

Benefits of Beauty Schools

Did you know 46% of all personal appearance workers are self-employed? That means you get to be your own boss, set your own schedule, and possibly even run your own business! You can become a cosmetologist, hair stylist, or barber after just nine months at one of the State-licensed cosmetology schools. Training to become a manicurist, pedicurist, or skin care technician (also called an esthetician or asthetician) takes far less time.

You should also have excellent job opportunities, since all personal appearance workers are expected to have faster than average employment growth. For instance, employment for nail technicians is expected to grow by 28% from 2006-2016, for skin care technicians it should grow by 34%, and employment for make up artists is expected to grow by 40 percent. These are some of the fastest growing professions in the U.S. today.  Furthermore, with the increasing popularity of learning through online schools, you can mix your beauty school training between online and on-campus classes, depending on the degree of flexibility you have.
