Why Choose a Future in the Beauty Industry?

Have you ever considered a future in the beauty industry? Whether you want to style hair, work as a makeup artist, or provide skin care services, the beauty industry is a great place for creative, outgoing people. Here are our top five reasons why you should choose a future in the beauty industry!

1. Help Others Feel Good

Ever had your day brightened up by a trip to the spa? Does visiting the hair salon make you feel like a new person? When you have a client who’s having a rough day, you can help them feel better. A new haircut, fresh blowout, or fun manicure can brighten up someone’s day and boost their confidence. You can create that positive vibe through your personality, skills, and creativity. Knowing that you made someone feel better with your talent can also lift your own self-esteem. This is just one of the possible rewards you can experience when you choose a future in the beauty industry.

2. Use Your Creativity

If you’ve always been creative and interested in things like beauty, art, fashion, and style, a future in the beauty industry could be ideal for you. Whether you choose cosmetology or esthetics, you’ll get a chance to use that creative mind of yours. You can learn intricate, beautiful hairstyles and makeup looks and recreate them on clients. For those interested in the latest skin care techniques and products, you can use that passion to improve clients’ skin. The beauty industry can be a great place for creative individuals to thrive.

3. Practice Customer Service

A job in the beauty industry can be great for people who are social butterflies. As a stylist in a salon, you’ll have different people in the chair every day, giving you plenty of chances to strike up conversations. If you work as a makeup artist or beauty advisor, you can talk to your client about what you’re doing with their makeup and teach them valuable skills. Skin care specialists consult with clients about their skin’s needs and provide recommendations. Whichever path appeals to you, the beauty industry can be a great environment if you’re a people person.

4. Flexible Scheduling

Jobs in the beauty industry often allow for flexible scheduling. If the typical nine to five doesn’t work for you, this could be a great choice for your future. Jobs in salons and spas often allow you to choose between working weekdays, evenings, and weekends. When it comes to your beauty education, The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Holland offers full-time and part-time programs to fit your needs.

5. Ever-Changing Work Days

When you have various clients with various needs, your workdays are rarely monotonous. One day you might be doing simple haircuts, while the next you could be creating an elaborate hairstyle for an event. Everyone who visits a stylist, makeup artist, or skin care specialist wants something different. You’ll get to use your creativity and skills each day to offer something unique to your client. Working in the beauty industry can keep you invested and engaged in your work as you continue to learn and grow.

What Can I Do With an Esthetics License

Esthetics. This word may seem intimidating, but don’t fret! Esthetics is simply the science and practice of taking care of skin! It can cover a wide variety of skills, and trends, with requirements that can lead to diverse careers. In Michigan, the required 400 hours certification covers everything you will need to know in order to sit for the state licensing board and help you step into multiple career opportunities. In addition, an Esthetics license is required if you want to pursue other skills like micro-blading and lash extensions.

The Salon Professional Academy Holland offers Esthetics training, with our next class beginning on June 13th. Contact us today to get started on building this amazing skill.

Want to know more? Here are just a few things you will learn while you pursue a future career in Esthetics.

  • Skin Care

    A broad term, yes, but within esthetics there are very specific skin care requirements that students should learn and hopefully master before they sit for the state board. This includes a knowledge and understanding of skin antiseptics, as well as lotions and creams. This means that all esthetician students should be learning how to keep skin clean, as well as how to keep it moisturized and smooth.

  • Facials

    Esthetics CareersCommonly understood as the staple in any esthetician’s handbag, facials will easily become a students go to. It’s easy to see why, with facials ranging anywhere from simple moisturizers to blackhead removal. They are very sought after. Mastering this skill will be a valuable asset to your skill set and a required knowledge when you sit for the state board.

  • Dermalogica Face Mapping

    The Salon Professional Academy Holland is proud to offer Dermalogica face mapping within our Esthetics courses. This system utilizes advanced technique and theory that will help you understand the chemistry of a client’s face, find problems areas, and resolve long term issues like dryness, oil, and breakouts. This system is not available everywhere and we are proud to include it in our repertoire.

  • Hair Removal

    If you, like 80% of the population, are tired of shaving, or are embarrassed by hair that is growing where it shouldn’t, then you have probably looked into hair removal at some time or another. As an esthetician, this skill is required learning, as temporary hair removal, such as waxing, are highly sought over.

  • Makeup Application

    Esthetics CareersUnlike many other states, Michigan has a requirement that all estheticians be trained in makeup application. This includes everything from basic and advanced techniques, to eyelash application. Having the knowledge of makeup can open up even more doors than standard spa and Esthetician based jobs, making this a valuable asset.

  • Additional Skills

    At TSPA Holland, we offer many wonderful add-ons to our standard esthetics courses. From hot stone work to peels to anti-aging methods, we create opportunities for our students to learn what they need to create a portfolio.
