Perks of Being a Cosmetologist or Esthetician

Any successful salon owner will tell you that theirs is an emotionally rewarding profession. From the glamour of the runway to the fashions on the street, professionals in the field help to shape the trends.  Fashion is a living thing, and becoming part of the industry is a dream come true for many people.

The beauty and wellness industry opens its doors to people from all walks of life. This is a business where self-expression and individualism aren’t just accepted, they’re encouraged and nurtured. You can feel good each day knowing that you’ve about helped people look and feel their very best.

Once you’ve completed hair school or an esthetician program, a wide variety of jobs become available to you. Aveda graduates work in spas, salons, cruise ships, malls, specialty stores and even doctor’s offices alongside dermatologists and reconstructive surgeons.
