Five Great Jobs in Beauty That Could Be Yours!

Is a future in the beauty industry calling your name? What are you waiting for?

There are many reasons that people shy away from pursuing their dreams, one of those is the unknown of what comes after you have completed your education. To some, it may seem that a career in beauty only has one possibility, that of working in a salon.

That couldn’t be further from the truth!

With the Barber Styling program we offer at The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Cedar Falls we help train our students in a wide range of beauty skills and techniques, giving them a knowledge in beauty that can help open the door to the career that is the perfect fit for them. More than men’s hair care and styling, your future extends nearly as far as you can dream.

Fall in love with your future potential with these five great possibilities.

    1. Stylist to the Stars

      Do you love putting together the perfect look? Do you find yourself seeing how people are dressed, how their hair and makeup are done and developing a new look? If you do, a career as a personal stylist could be for you. With clients from local and national celebrities, to business men and women wanting to look their best, you can make your fashion and beauty skills shine in this enjoyable career.

    2. Send Your Style Down The Catwalk

      Becoming a brand representative is a career that is often not thought of by aspiring beauty professionals, but it is one that could become a career full of education, passion and creativity. Working for brands such as Redken, brand representatives travel to beauty schools, salons, and even fashion shows to help educate and demonstrate the products of the brands they represent. If you dream of helping others reach their dreams and sharing your knowledge, this is definitely an option you should be considering.

    3. Make Special Occasions Shine

      Prom. Weddings. That family picture that took four years to get everyone in the same place. There are dozens of reasons that everyday people need a traveling stylist to help them get their hair and makeup just right. From the blowout they have been dreaming of, to the perfect beard trim for the big day, helping people look their best is the name of the job.

      If you like the idea of helping people look great, but don’t want to be tied down to just one client, consider offering your services for special occasions and spreading your creative talent far and wide.

    4. Lights. Camera. Style.

    5. More Than a Day Job.
