Cosmetology School: Brownsville TX and Growing

Cosmetology: A Career on the Move
With so many industries on the decline, wouldn’t it be great to find a career that is doing the exact opposite? There is: cosmetology. Cosmetology is the study and application of beauty techniques, and can include hair styling, nail care, and skin treatments. Did you know that with over 1.7 million salon employees, there are more of them than there are lawyers?

What’s great about this field is that a cosmetologist has options. You can be a hair stylist, manicurist, esthetician, product demonstrator or salesperson, or even a salon owner. According to the 2007 Job Demand in the Cosmetology Industry report by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences (NACCAS), some actual figures surrounding cosmetology are as follows:

  • More than 1,682,600 industry professionals were employed in 370,215 barber shops, beauty salons, nail salons, or unisex locations.
  • The industry has seen an 18.3% rise in the number of salons between 2004 and 2007.
  • 65% of salons are employer-owned.
  • A whopping 53% of salon owners have employment opportunities, indicating a strong need for cosmetologists.

Job Prospects and Conditions
For 2012 – 2022, the United States Bureau of Statistics indicated that the job outlook for cosmetology was 13%. According to the NACCAS study mentioned above, the national average reported salary ranges between $30,000 and $48,000, depending on the work, amount of experience, and educational background. Anyone wanting to work within the field of cosmetology will most likely find work in a salon, spa, resort, or hotel, either part-time or full-time, often on weekends. The work requires a lot of standing and exposure to chemicals for various hair, skin, and nail treatments. To excel, professionals must also have excellent customer service skills with a flair for the artistic and an eye for fashion.

Annette D.
Business Accounting

“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.”
