Be Evergreen: Why Cosmetologists Love Their Jobs
When you ask a cosmetologist what they love about their jobs, they often talk about what they can do for other people, as well as how they can express themselves. Part of the reason we love working in the beauty industry is because we have the chance to “Be Evergreen” every single day. We have opportunities to show compassion, lift other people up, and become our truest selves. Here are just a few of the biggest reasons that cosmetologists love their jobs:
The “Therapy Stylist”
Cosmetologists frequently have the opportunity to be a trusted ear to clients that sit in their chair. Haircuts are a rare opportunity for some people to open up about themselves and talk about what’s going on in life, and for many clients getting a haircut can be therapeutic. People come into a salon or spa to become an improved version of themselves, and sometimes that includes unloading some personal baggage. Cosmetologists have the privilege of being someone who listens and cares about the difficulties that others face, and to be someone who makes the journey a little easier along the way. Looking out for others like this is just one way that our cosmetology pros show what it means to Be Evergreen.
Graduation from beauty school doesn’t mark the end of learning for a good cosmetologist. Rather, it marks the beginning of a lifetime of learning! Beauty school is perfect for those who always thirst for opportunities to learn. The beauty industry is always advancing and growing in new ways, so staying on top of the latest products and trends requires a fair amount of education. Beauty professionals certainly never run out of things to learn, and that’s why many cosmetologists absolutely love what they do.
One struggle that many people go through is finding a career that they love doing and can financially support them throughout their lives. Creative and artistic minds can sometimes struggle with this in particular because of how limited some creative career paths can be. In the world of beauty, creativity and artistic talent are celebrated, and there’s no shortage of opportunity for people to make careers in cosmetology. Our students love what they do every day because they get to embrace their creative side and create works of art that people adore and take with them!
Evergreen students value personal freedom, and for many of them that’s why they chose to start careers in beauty. Cosmetology opens up opportunities to work at any time and in any kind of environment. Some graduates opt to work standard weekday shifts with their clients, other prefer to work in the evenings or on weekends. Cosmetologists can also treat their clients at home, in a salon, or in a personal work space. Other graduates choose to create their own businesses, ranging from opening their own salon to creating their own line of beauty products. Many professional cosmetologists say they love their career because they can always choose to be their own boss. Where your career takes you is completely up to your imagination!
