Where Dreams
Become Careers

It’s incredibly common for cosmetologists, beauty pros, and other professionals in the cosmetology industry to get their start at cosmetology school. It’s where we get our licenses, where we learn, where we get hands-on experience, and where we begin the careers we hope to shape the rest of our lives.

Sometimes, though, the winding path of our careers lead us back to our roots, back to cosmetology school, and back to where it all began—only this time, as cosmetology instructors.

Becoming a cosmetology instructor is actually a pretty sweet gig and one that not all that many cosmetologists consider right out of their career gate.

Some view it as the end of their creative career or even a detour from their original career goals. But teaching cosmetology—in whatever capacity you choose—can be a great way to hone your skills even further, boost your career immensely, and even make an unchangeable, important impact in the lives of other soon-to-be cosmetologists.

Don’t get us wrong—being a cosmetology instructor might not be the perfect fit for everyone, but if you love passing along your skills, look forward to a job filled with creative freedom, and relish the idea of mentoring and adding to the lives of students while continuing your own fulfilling beauty career, this could be the perfect career move for you.

Why You Should Become an Instructor

Personal Fulfillment

As an instructor, you’re in a position to offer hands-on knowledge that can directly impact and change a person’s life. Sure, being a cosmetology pro working in a salon or a spa is rewarding—we’d never deny that—but as an educator, you’re helping the next wave of beauty pros become the best they can be.

You can amplify your talent by teaching others, you can offer wisdom and vision, squash bad habits, and help train students to become the best versions of themselves possible. If that’s not personal fulfillment, what is?

Professional Growth

Lots of stylists, cosmetologists, and beauty pros think that the next step in any career is starting their own salon, spa, or studio. And for some, that is the right next step—but it’s not everything. Becoming a cosmetology instructor is an excellent way to grow as a professional in more ways than one.

Cosmetology teachers are often equipped with broader knowledge, different experience, and the drive to move on to other unique career paths afterward that they might not have known about unless they became an instructor in the first place.

For example, teachers have the opportunity to become beauty school administrators and managers, state board examiners, even product reps, and educational consultants.

Being an instructor isn’t the ending point for a career in education—in fact, it’s just the start.

You Can Keep Your Clients

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to give up being a cosmetology pro who services clients. If it’s important to you, you can keep your clients and work part-time.

All it takes is dedication and a little creativity, but you can have the best of both worlds.
