Have you considered cosmetology school, but aren’t sure it’s the right fit? Xenon Academy is here to help!
The beauty industry isn’t just for makeup mavens and color addicts!
The list of career options that fall in the scope of “the beauty industry” goes on and on:
- makeup artist
- Salon owner
- Product representatives
Each successful career has the same starting place: a quality, beauty education.
So, how can you find out if the beauty industry will really be a good fit for you? Read on and get in contact with us to speak with an admissions representative at Xenon Academy.
1. Are you creative and motivated?
Whether you’re cutting, coloring and styling hair or pushing the boundaries with your makeup concepts and designs, there’s a place for your creativity to bloom in the beauty industry. So much of the fun of working as a beauty professional comes from having the freedom to express your creativity each and every day. Each client is a new opportunity to make art. So if you find yourself constantly penning new ideas and projects, or love all things beauty and wellness, then the beauty industry is for you!
2. Do you need freedom/ flexibility?
Does the idea of reporting to a 9-5 desk job make you feel uneasy? Have you noticed that you’re happier when you control your daily schedule?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, then the beauty industry is for you!
Working as a beauty professional means that you could have the option to book your own clients and make your own schedule as a freelancer.
3. Do you enjoy helping people?
What better way to help someone than help them to feel confident and proud of their self?
Usually, people schedule salon appointments because they want to make a change, and stylists get the honor of making that change happen.
When a client leaves a salon, they should be happy and rejuvenated, and knowing that you’re responsible for causing that joy is really satisfying!
If you want to do fun, but meaningful work the beauty industry is definitely for you!
The possibilities as a beauty professional are endless, but you have to start somewhere. Get some more information, and call us to speak to an admissions representative about your future as a beauty professional!
