New Year. New You. New Career!

What were your New Year’s Resolutions? If they included a change of careers or a change of where you work, this could be the inspiration you need to follow through!

A New Career

Starting a new career is an exciting prospect, but it can be a little scary, too. However, there are plenty of compelling reasons to consider a career in the beauty industry as a hairstylist.

  • Plentiful Jobs – There are a lot of jobs to be had as a stylist. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that jobs in the beauty industry are expected to grow faster than ever, up to 8% annually.
  • Quick Training – Stylists are required to attend beauty school which can often be completed in less than two years at a cost that is much lower than traditional college programs.
  • Flexible Career – As a stylist, you can enjoy a flexible work schedule, making it an ideal career for parents and people who don’t find a traditional 9-to-5 schedule appealing.
  • Nurture Your Creativity – Salons are creative environments where you can nurture your skills while showing off your creativity.
  • Career Longevity – As your life changes, your career as a stylist can grow, too. Stylists of all ages and backgrounds are welcome in this fun, creative industry.

“Be patient. Give it time and just don’t quit. Take every opportunity that’s given to you as far as furthering your education with learning new techniques; just give it your all.” – Olivia Long, FS Stylist

A New Salon

“Every salon is going to have its own personality; you need to visit more than one to make sure you’re finding the right fit for you.” – Amanda Klinger, FS Stylist

If you’re an experienced stylist, the new year could be the time to shake up your career, too. Spending time at a salon that you’ve outgrown or simply no longer fits your needs can take a toll on your career satisfaction. The new year might be the time to consider a change of where you work, not what you do.
