Cosmetologist School is the key that opens the door to a number of beauty careers.
You may want a real career in beauty but not feeling like actually doing hair with clients. That's ok.
Nowadays the landscape of the beauty industry has changed to accommodate just about anyone that has a desire to be a part of it.
Cosmetologist school gives you authority and credibility.
Let's say you want to be an account executive for a top beauty product line. You may have a dynamic personality and be a beauty yourself, but back it up with a degree from a cosmetologist school and you have instant authority to fill that position.
Why? Because you have the science behind the products, the working knowledge of its uses, and the ability (legally) to demonstrate the products on people.
As a licensed cosmetologist, you can work on real people. THIS gives you credibility!
If you were working in a salon and a rep showed up telling you how fabulous Olaplex is in rebuilding the bonds in the hair you will listen because this product can make you money. Then you find out the rep isn't licensed and has never done hair. My question is: Are you more likely to invest with an actual hairstylist who loves the product or a regular sales rep selling the product? See my point? CREDIBILITY.
