National Beautician’s Day is celebrated on June 26. Remember to honor your favorite beautician for all he or she does to help you to stay looking your best. 

If you love how your hair looks, thank your beautician. The same goes for your nails, skin, and makeup. Beauticians, also referred to as cosmetologists and hairstylists, help us feel good about ourselves and are an important part of many peoples’ lives. Beauty professionals make up a sizable portion of the workforce in the United States. Texas actually has one of the highest rates of employment for this occupation. June 26 is National Beautician’s Day. Remember to honor your favorite beautician for all he or she does to help you to stay looking your best. 

What Is National Beautician’s Day?

National Beautician’s Day is a time to celebrate and show appreciation for those who work in the beauty industry. Celebrated on June 26, it gives us a chance to do a little something extra for someone who is as much a part of our lives as our primary care physicians are, in many cases. Beauticians, stylists, cosmetologists, barbers, hair colorists, manicurists, pedicurists, and skin technicians all fall into this category.

It is unclear when the day was first observed, but the concept of human beauty and beautification has been around for quite some time. Women in Ancient Egypt used kohl to line their eyes and berries to color their lips. Oils and beeswax were applied to the skin by women in early Rome to help with wrinkles, burns, and other skin imperfections.

The field of beauty and cosmetology has grown exponentially in the last century. Industry professionals offer a variety of services including hair cutting, coloring, and styling, electrolysis, manicures, pedicures, facials, and makeup applications. They offer advice on how to care for hair and skin, and they often become trusted confidantes to their clientele.    

How to Celebrate Beauty

To celebrate National Beautician’s Day, do something nice for your hairstylist, manicurist, or facial technician. Indeed, a thoughtful card or a gift of flowers would be much appreciated. If you happen to have an appointment scheduled, consider a more generous tip.

Cosmetologists spend a lot of time on their feet. Put a smile on your beauty professional’s face with a gift of foot balm or perfumed cream. A recommendation on your Facebook, Twitter, or a stylist’s business website is also very helpful.

Be creative in showing how much you appreciate your stylist’s talent and years of service.

A Career in Beauty


For artistic individuals who like helping people, a career in beauty can be very rewarding. Beauticians work in stand-alone salons, spas, hotels, and resorts. Some find employment in nursing care facilities that have beauty shops for residents. Further, many rent space from chain suppliers or individual owners. Many professionals open up their own salons after a few years’ experience.

Beauticians can specialize in hair care techniques like coloring, permanents, chemical straightening, and braiding. Some focus just on skincare regimes offering facial massage, peeling, waxing, and hair removal. Manicurists and pedicurists usually do foot soaks and massage in addition to nail trimming, filing, and polishing. Indeed, a beautician can specialize in one area or do it all.

Some who are trained in makeup techniques find work in the film and television industries. Amusement parks and other entertainment venues also hire staff to handle makeup application and hairstyling services.      

Cosmetology Operator-Training and Licensing

44% of beauticians in the United States own their own businesses. In Texas, Southern Careers Institute offers a Cosmetology Operator’s training course at the Brownsville, San Antonio South, and Corpus Christi campuses that prepares individuals to manage and operate a beauty-related entity. The program provides students with the opportunity to express their creativity within the bounds of technical skill in safety, health factors, and sanitation when working with hair, skin, nails, makeup, and salon management.

Students get hands-on instruction in hair cutting, styling, and coloring, hair and scalp treatments, beauty trends, facials, and skin care treatments, nail techniques, waxing, and hair removal. They also enroll in a course that prepares them to run a salon business and one that prepares them to take the Texas state board, cosmetology operators licensing exam. Then, in as little as 40 weeks, students are ready for the exam and entry-level employment.

Continuing education classes are a must for beauticians as products, styling procedures, and trends are constantly changing and advancing. Further, stylists can get additional training with companies that sell their own products and feature unique cuts or processes.

Happy National Beautician’s Day 2020!

Celebrate National Beautician’s Day by expressing to your stylist how important he or she is to your life and overall well-being. How we look plays a role in how we feel about ourselves, and without beauticians, we probably wouldn’t be living our best lives.

If you have an interest in pursuing a career in the beauty industry and operating your own business, contact Southern Careers Institute today at 1-833-SCI-TEXAS. Enrollment counselors are standing by to help you apply and schedule your courses.

The Cosmetology Operator training course is offered via a 1500-hour program at the Brownsville and San Antonio South campuses or a 1000-hour program at those campuses and the Corpus Christi campus. On one hand, the longer program covers a broader scope of more techniques. On the other hand, the shorter program can be more focused on specialty areas like hair braiding and extensions.

Once you graduate, the Student Careers Services department at SCI can help you with interviewing techniques and securing a job. You even have the opportunity to create and post a video of yourself performing hair, skin, and nail processes to show potential employers that you have the experience they are looking for.

Classes fill up quickly, so don’t delay in getting started. Get the recognition, promotion, and raise you to want sooner by getting the training needed to do the job and obtain licensure. Next year, you could be one of those honored on National Beautician’s Day.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
