You’ve trained hard, you’ve got your esthetics or cosmetology license, and you’re ready to take your career to the next level. It’s time to become an instructor! You can be the inspiration that brings new talent into our industry by helping to train the new generation of cosmetologists and estheticians through our Instructor Training Program at Summit Salon Academy Kansas City!

What are the benefits of becoming an instructor?

In addition to working with your clients, being an instructor brings an even more enhanced sense of career satisfaction to estheticians and cosmetologists. There are plenty of benefits to becoming an instructor.

  • The satisfaction of helping others. Most people become estheticians or cosmetologists because they love helping people. There’s a strong sense of accomplishment at the end of the day when you’ve made your clients look and feel their best. The same is true of being an instructor – this takes helping others to a whole new level. You’ll have the opportunity to inspire and teach a whole new generation of talented people who want to come into the industry for the same reasons as you once did. Your experience and caring, one-on-one instruction will help people succeed in this rewarding career field.
  • Professional advancement. Becoming an instructor opens up even more career pathways for you. Once you’re an experienced instructor, you may be eligible for advancement into areas of cosmetology and esthetic school management and administration, and you might also find new career opportunities as a state board examiner. These opportunities take your career to a whole new level.

Can I keep my clients when I become an instructor?

The simple answer is that yes, there may be part-time opportunities to teach students that allow you to keep your current clients. Relationship building is so important in this industry, and we know how close estheticians and cosmetologists can become to their clientele!
