As someone who has a passion for beauty and fashion, you’re probably familiar with cosmetology and esthetician programs of study. But did you know there are several possible career paths for beauty school graduates to work in skin care, hair design, and makeup?

Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes offer educational opportunities based on principles of wellness and sustainability at our campus locations in Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. We embrace the Aveda brand values of sustainable environmental practices and teach our students about plant-based product ingredients for beauty and health. Here, we go over the career paths graduates can follow to achieve fulfilling work and a stable income.

Attain Professional Status in Cosmetology, Skin Care, and Hair Design

Several states require cosmetologists, estheticians, hair stylists, and barbers to pass licensing exams. Students are prepared for an exam by completing a qualified training program. The cosmetology and esthiology programs at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes both require 600 hours of training, including extensive hands-on experience. Guided by our accomplished instructors, students gain practical experience by providing as many as 300 services in our student salon as part of their program.

Our comprehensive approach to teaching these beauty and wellness practices provides students with multiple avenues for specialization and innovation. This is reflected in the multitude of career and business opportunities found by graduates of Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes.

Choose Among Possible Beauty and Wellness Careers

It quickly becomes clear to students enrolled in the programs at Inspire Greatness Aveda Institutes that the more they learn about skin care, hair design, and makeup, the more options they have for finding employment once they graduate. It’s also evident that these skillsets are interrelated in the best possible way.

For example, makeup artists need to understand how to take care of the skin. Hair designers find that the health of hair and skin are fundamentally connected. And perhaps most importantly, the services provided by all beauty professionals are meant to improve the wellness and beauty of the clients.

Licensed cosmetologists, hair designers, and skin care specialists may pursue a variety of career paths, including:

  • Film and television arts: Local, national, and global
  • Fashion design: Runway support and media promotion
  • Travel industry: Destination resorts, airports, and cruises

  • Social media influencer: Corporate partner, entertainment industry, or entrepreneur
  • Business owner: Salons, spas, wellness centers, and tattoo businesses
  • Consultant: For businesses or individuals
  • Writer: Media, public relations, and marketing

The innovative creativity of beauty and wellness professionals is clear from this short list of possible career paths. With a knack for combining skillsets and learning from experience, many licensed cosmetologists and hair designers find their services are in demand in seemingly surprising places. As it turns out, almost everybody can use some help with beauty and health.
