What Beauty Schools in Texas Have to Offer You!

Beauty Schools: Cut a Path to a New Career!

Do you need to attend beauty school to work as a hair stylist, barber, manicurist, pedicurist, or skin care specialist? In short, yes! To become a professional in any of those fields, you need a license, and to qualify for that license you usually need to complete a program at one of the State-licensed beauty schools--many of which only require that you have a traditional or online high school diploma in order to enroll.  You can earn this diploma through one of many online schools of your choice.

The good news is that cosmetology schools in Texas offer a variety of programs allowing you to focus on your own field. For instance, you can earn an associate degree as a hair stylist, barber, or cosmetologist in just nine months. Or, in much less time, you can train to become a nail technician or esthetician (sometimes spelled asthetician). You can also enroll in such optional courses as sales, marketing, and even people skills. Since success in this career depends on repeat business and getting along with your clients, having good people skills is vital.

Are Texas Cosmetology Schools Right for Me?               

While makeup artists don't technically need to attend cosmetology school, the field is so small that you often need formal training to get your foot in the door. Texas is one of the top five highest paying states for makeup artists. A makeup artist in Texas earns $28,490 annually, which is above the national median wage of $26,270, according to BLS, 2008.

And all cosmetology students can enjoy the many benefits the Lone Star State has to offer: Houston's Grand Opera, Symphony Orchestra, and theater, Fort Worth's Modern Art Museum, or the city of Austin known as the "Live Music Capital of the World."
