New Jersey Cosmetology Job Market

Numerous job opportunities have been available to cosmetology professionals in both good and bad economic times.

Beauty is a diverse and growing multi-billion dollar industry. Shore Beauty School graduates work in hair salons, barber shops, skin care spas, beauty product sales and beauty schools.

Job Security

Whether you want to open your own business or need a career with flexible hours leaving time to raise a family, cosmetology could be the career for you. Beauty care service jobs cannot be outsourced to other countries like manufacturing. A salon, barber shop, skin care spa or manicuring shop can’t be replaced by a website or smartphone app.

New Jersey requires all cosmetologists, hairstylists, barbers, skin care specialists, manicurists and makeup artists who wish to work in NJ to:

  • graduate from beauty school in a program targeting their chosen focus
  • pass both written and practical examinations for licensure
  • hold a valid NJ State license.
