Beauty Schools in New Mexico

Cosmetologist jobs are expected to increase at a faster-than-average rate of 14 percent through 2016, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Specialties experiencing especially fast growth are manicurist/pedicurist, skin care specialist (aesthetician), and make-up artist.

Meanwhile, the cosmetology industry is evolving, opening new avenues for graduates of beauty schools. Today's programs go beyond hair, nails, and skin, and often provide instruction in massage and other holistic wellness treatments, as a result of the burgeoning spa industry. In fact, one in four Americans today has been to a spa, and there are more than 32 million active spa-goers. Spa locations have increased at a phenomenal rate of 20 percent since 2000.

Clearly, whether you plan to work in a salon as a hair stylist, nail technician, or aesthetician, or in a spa performing body treatments, reflexology, massage, or other wellness procedure, prospects look good for future cosmetologists.
