How to Use Your Cosmetology License

how to use your cosmetology license

When you get your Cosmetology license, you’ll be ready to pursue a wide range of careers in the beauty industry. First, you’ll need to go through an accredited Cosmetology Program (like ours!) where you’ll learn advanced techniques in hair cutting and styling, hair coloring, chemical treatments, barbering, skin care, facials, makeup, nail technology, and business fundamentals. Then, you’ll be fully prepared to take your state licensure exam and then go on to launch a career in beauty.

Hair Stylist

As a professional hair stylist, you’ll get to use your creative talents to cut, color, and style hair to make people feel better about themselves – you’ll also do keratin treatments, perms and more.

Hair Color Specialist

While hair stylists do color and highlights, a hair color specialist has extensive knowledge of the technicalities of hair color, depth, and tone, and has mastered a range of coloring techniques.

Barber/Barber Shop Owner

You may choose to become a barber or even open your own shop. As a barber, you’ll cut and style hair using scissors, clippers, and razors; shave clients, and offer hot towel treatments.

Skin Care Specialist

As a skin care specialist, you’ll teach people how to care for their skin, address any issues, and recommend what products and treatments should work best for their skin type.

Makeup Artist

There are many different paths you can take if you decide to become a makeup artist. You can do make up for weddings and events, fashion shows and photo shoots, or even theatrical makeup.

Salon Owner/Manager

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and some business training, you may be able to use your Cosmetology license to become a manager, or even an owner, of a salon.

And More

Cosmetologists work in a wide range of positions – you could also be a manicurist, work in beauty product sales or even teach cosmetology to a new generation of students.
