4 Common Misconceptions About Beauty College

Beauty College

If you’ve ever thought about enrolling in a beauty college, you’ve probably come across several misconceptions about each of these educational programs. Let’s face it, myths lurk everywhere! It’s just a fact of life. What follows are four of the most common misconceptions, floating around in cyberspace. Dispelling them is easy. Read on, to discover why.

The Earnings Potential Is Low

One of the best things about working in the beauty industry is that there is absolutely no cap on your earning potential. As a rule, you set your own schedule, especially if you work for yourself. This means you can work as much or as little as you wish. Obviously, the more you build your client base, the busier you’ll be and the more money you’ll make.

It’s Never Good to Change Careers

According to CincyChic.com, job-hopping does not make you look inexperienced or like someone who gets bored quickly. Statistics indicate that many people, aged 20 to 30, already have more than eight jobs to their credit.

Changing jobs frequently raises your learning curve and prevents you from losing your passion for the job. It also makes it easier to widen your professional network, which generally leads to even better opportunities.

No One Hires Barber School Graduates

This misconception stems from the fact that countless jobs are being sent offshore. It’s completely impossible to get a haircut on the Internet or from a call center. The industry is booming. So much so that it’s typically just as easy to find employment in a small town as it is in a big city.

Barber College Is Just For Men

Seventeen.com suggests that more and more women are making the informed decision to attend barber college. The beauty industry is not discriminatory, as it once was. Today, you’ll find just as many female barbers as you do male hairstylists and makeup artists. Success in the field isn’t based on gender. It’s based on knowledge, creativity and skills.
