WHY Cosmetology? 

A CAREER IN VOGUE

Today, annually, there are 95 million salon and spa visits in America, generating $40 billion in revenues.* Employment for those seeking a career as a hairdresser is expected to increase by 10 percent by 2024, which is faster than average for all occupations.**

Once seen as a job to make ends meet, perceptions have changed as more people see cosmetology as a creative and lucrative career with more freedom and independence than a 9-to-5. A stylist makes people look and feel beautiful; these arts are required and respected in our image-conscious culture.  

Yet with increased demand comes increase competition. More cosmetologists entering the field makes it is important to begin your new profession with an advanced, inspirational, and career-shaping education so you can graduate with a skill set that paves the way for lifelong achievement.
