Hairstyling is all about people, from clients whose lives you change with a cut and color, to coworkers who laugh and swap stories with you as you share the same friendly space, to vendors who keep you supplied with the latest and greatest in hair products. Many of these relationships can last for years. And there’s plenty of adventure to be had away from your home base as well.
Because hairstylists need to stay informed of the latest trends and techniques, they have opportunities to attend shows around the country, and even the world, to stay sharp and connected to others in the field. Many of these business trips feel more like retreats, where you get away with other like-minded professionals in beautiful, spa-like surroundings.
Some hairstylists work for chain salons, while others take positions at upscale hair studios. Some work for themselves as freelancers. Many spend time in a variety of settings over the years, experiencing the pros and cons of each as they settle on their dream schedule. The great thing about hairstyling is that no matter what the state of the economy, people will always need their hair cut, and no matter what the styling trends, they will need someone to do the styling! What is open to change is how you do your work.
Do you want to cut hair part time as you pursue other educational goals or interests? Or do you want to dive into the industry headfirst, making a name for yourself in the fast-paced world of competitions? From starting a family to sending kids to college, you may need to increase or decrease your hours over the years. As a hairstylist, you’re not stuck with a rigid schedule—you can call the shots.
And not just with your scissors. When it comes to hairstyles, skin care, and even the latest clothing trends, the hairstylist is a fashion-forward professional who has the advantage of staying a step ahead of today’s beauty secrets. It feels good to play a part in the creative effort to make people look and feel great! And it also feels good to be one of the most stylish people among your friends.
