Cosmetology, Barbering & Beauty Schools

Trade School Programs: Training in Beauty and Cosmetology
Cosmetologists, barbers, and beauty professionals enjoy the opportunity to find work in every area of the world, providing a service that should always be in need. Training for these positions may includes programs at trade schools, junior colleges, vocational schools, or community centers. Trade school programs may last 6-12 months, and can be completed part-time. In addition, many classes are offered at night and on weekends.

A state license is typically required for barbers, cosmetologists, and beauty professionals. This exam traditionally requires a high school diploma or GED, the completion of a barber or cosmetology training program, and the passing of a state exam, including written and practical tests.

Working as a Barber, Cosmetologist, or Beauty Professional
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that this career category should grow slightly faster than average, and that job opportunities should be plentiful. Turnover is generally high as workers change locations and career paths. Also, the increased demand by aging baby-boomers should keep hair stylists in particular on a steady trend of job growth.

Most barbers, cosmetologists, and beauty professionals work in barber shops, salons, and spas, offering hair cuts, manicures, pedicures, facials, and other services.

Most of these workers earn hourly wages. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics of May 2011, the middle 50 percent earned an average hourly rate of between $8.04 and $10.85, including tips. Specialty salons and spas typically pay more, based on experience. These positions usually do not come with benefits, and hours can range from part- to full-time and even overtime work.
