Follow Your Passion for a Successful Career in Esthetics or Cosmetology

Owning a successful business is the dream of many, and when it’s a fun, exciting business that you love to do, that makes it even better. If you’ve always wanted to be an esthetician or cosmetologist but were worried that you might not be successful, you need to know that choosing the right training makes all the difference. At Summit Salon Academy KC, we’re excited to provide an effective education in esthetics and cosmetology that has elevated our graduates to succeed as business owners in their field.

Summit Salon Academy KC is different than your average cosmetology and esthetics school. Yes, we provide a world-class education in the technical skills that make you an expert in the industry, but there is a key difference: we also train you to become a successful businessperson. And the best part is that you can train for your successful business career in as little as eight months.

Other programs train you to cut and color hair, perform complicated styling techniques, assess and treat skin conditions, and perform a variety of services like waxing, brow tinting, and makeup application. That’s just enough training to pass the state licensing exam and become a licensed cosmetologist or esthetician. But after you leave these programs, how do you get started on a business? Many graduates from these programs are left wondering what to do next. At Summit Salon Academy KC, we do all the skills training, but we also prepare you to start your own business – and to be successful at it.

Graduates of other skills-based training programs in cosmetology or esthetics have an average salary of $23,000 in the first year. That’s a decent start, but in these tough economic times, that’s not enough to support a family. In fact, working hard for a low salary often leads to burnout, because using your talents every day should reap a much higher reward. Graduates from the Summit Salon Academy KC skills- and business-focused training programs make an average of $40,000 in the first year after graduating – that’s almost twice the income of graduates from other schools that just train you to pass a test.

And that’s just the beginning. A huge percentage of our Summit Salon Academy KC graduates see an incredible six-figure income within the first four years of becoming licensed in cosmetology or esthetics. That’s because we teach much more than the basics. We teach you how to be a successful business owner with skills like how to manage the clientele, your hours, and how to ensure continued growth throughout your career. You’ll learn how to build residual income for year-over-year revenue growth, as well as how to build a business where you are in control of your schedule, not your guests, and how to implement price increases based on supply and demand of your time. These complex concepts are the key to helping our graduates build a successful business beyond the technical skills they receive in our programs.

Graduating from a Summit Salon Academy KC school that teaches these principles is allowing our students to see faster growth than a student who does not – Summit graduates are making more money each year than non-Summit graduates, and our carefully crafted business success programming is responsible for the difference.
