Mortuary Cosmetologists

Advancement Prospects

Mortuary cosmetology, or desairology, may not hold the glamour of other cosmetology specialties, such as a stage or film artist, but it offers other attractions, such as the opportunity to perform humanitarian services. Mortuary cosmetologists who make funeral homes, salons, and the general public aware of the valuable service they provide can help their businesses grow. Mortuary cosmetologists who build a reputation for providing a valuable service can carve a niche for themselves in their area. Becoming a funeral home's or salon's designated desairologist can lead to steady work, which because of its specialized nature, generally pays more than regular cosmetology services.
