Were you worried about career opportunities? Whatever the reason was, you’re not alone. Here are a few common reasons that many people do not commit to beauty school.

Reason 1: Worries About Fitting In

When you’re starting something new, it’s normal to worry about fitting in. People might already have their set cliques and groups. Where will you fall into place? TSPA Holland provides a welcoming, safe environment for all students. We want everyone to feel secure and at home at our school.

Reason 2: Concerned About Job Opportunities

Have you put off enrolling in beauty school because you don’t want just want to cut and style hair? Don’t worry! Receiving a cosmetology license does not limit you to becoming a hairstylist. In fact, there are various unique careers you can work in as a licensed cosmetologist. A few examples include:

  • Makeup artist
  • Salon owner
  • Colorist
  • Theatrical makeup artist
  • Editorial hair stylist
  • Beauty advisor
  • Beauty blogger

Reason 3: Afraid of Not Being Able to Earn Money

As one of the most lucrative and fastest growing industries, you can absolutely make a living by working in beauty. Beauty professionals have a variety of career options and there are always plenty of growth opportunities. Another great part about cosmetology is that beauty careers are often quite flexible. You don’t have to work a standard 9 to 5. Need to work evenings or weekends? That’s possible. If you want to rent a booth in a salon and build your own clientele, that’s also an option. You can even move into a more entrepreneurial role as a salon owner after you get a few years of experience under your belt. There are plenty of opportunities to make a living in the beauty industry, it all starts with a cosmetology license!

Reason 4: Misconceptions About the Word School

Maybe going to school has never been your favorite thing. University and other forms of postsecondary education are not for everyone. Beauty school can be a great choice for those who don’t want to pursue a traditional post-secondary education. TSPA Holland’s cosmetology program presents the chance to learn beauty application techniques, business strategies, and guest relations in a creative, fun environment. It’ll also put you alongside other people who share your interests and passion for beauty. Unlike four-year or two-year educational programs, our cosmetology program is designed to prepare you for a career in less than a year. This can be a great option for individuals who want to enter the workforce and start making money as soon as possible.

Reason 5: Intimidated By Beauty Culture

To some, the beauty industry can seem a little intimidating. It’s a world full of glamorous models, high-end products, expensive tools, and luxurious salons. But there’s so much more to this industry than glossy magazine spreads. Beauty is about community and growth. It’s about learning and expressing creativity. At the core of our beauty school lies a group of people who are passionate about the industry. We want our students to find future careers that they’ll love. At TSPA Holland, your success is our success.
