Beauty Professionals Are In Demand

We’ve all watched the DIY videos of people trying to cut or color their hair at home. It usually doesn’t end well! While those can be fun to laugh at, they’re also a good reminder that it’s best to leave these processes to the professionals who are trained to give clients the best results. Many people assume that just anyone can perform beauty services without any background knowledge of the science that goes behind hair but these videos show that can’t be further from the truth.

If you’re thinking about turning your passion of beauty into a career, check out our list of why beauty professionals are so in demand and how this can give you some amazing advantages for your future!

Beauty Careers on the Rise

You may be wondering what we mean when we say that beauty professionals are in demand. Since the beauty industry is full of creative and innovative individuals, there are always exciting new trends and techniques being developed. And most people aren’t going to want to repeat those YouTube DIY videos! They’re going to want to go to a beauty professional. That’s why according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the job outlook for cosmetologists is expected to grow by 8% from 2018 to 2028.

There’s no better feeling than having skills that people rely on you to perform. There are even salons close to Crave Beauty Academy who are looking for licensed beauty professionals right now. Contact us if you’re interested in learning more about them.

So what sets beauty professionals apart from just anyone trying out a cut or color at home?

They Understand Technical Beauty Skills

Although you may not usually associate chemistry with hair, the color mixes cosmetologists use have a variety of chemicals in it that help your hair get that tone you’ve always wanted. And you wouldn’t trust just anyone to add those complex chemicals in your hair! Along with learning elaborate hairstyling techniques and trending haircuts, beauty professionals also study the anatomy of hair and how it’s going to react with each chemical. That background knowledge is something you can’t get from YouTube and one reason why those DIY videos have such cringeworthy results!

They Know the Latest Trends

Not everyone knows which hairstyle they want. That’s where a trained cosmetologist comes in! During their education, beauty professionals study the latest trends and how to incorporate them into each client’s own personal style. Plus, unlike someone who just decides to do their own hair at home, cosmetologists are completely immersed in the beauty world. They most likely have a beauty network of people who also know all about the newest trends that are just starting to get popular. What better person to help you bring your beauty vision to life than someone whose job it is to stay informed on all the latest styles?

They’re Industry Professionals

Sure, cosmetologists know the latest trends but that’s just the beginning! They also need a background knowledge in all things hair care. That means understanding which hairstyles go with each face shape, hair products to use with specific hair types, ways to fix damaged hair or help those beautiful locks grow faster, and so much more. These are all just some of the lessons you can’t learn on YouTube that clients rely on beauty professionals to understand!

They’re Great Listeners

Let’s face it, making sure you get a beauty service done right is only part of the reason why you go to a cosmetologist for all your hair needs. The other part is that they’re great listeners who offer a safe place to talk about everything that’s happening in your life. There’s just nothing that can beat going into a salon and talking with someone you trust all while being pampered!
