Industries & Professions /
The future looks great for cosmetology. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment should grow about as fast as the average through 2020. Our growing population and changes in hair fashion that are practically seasonal will contribute to the demand for cosmetologists. In addition, turnover in this career is fairly high as cosmetologists move up into management positions, change careers, or leave the field for other reasons. Cosmetologists new to the field will have better chances to find work, whereas competition for more experienced cosmetology positions at higher paying, prestigious salons will be strong.
