Open a World of Opportunity with a Professional Cosmetology License

If you’ve always dreamed of a career in the beauty industry, a cosmetology license is the first place to start. At Summit Salon Academy Kansas City, our cosmetology license programs are designed to set you off on the right path to a fun career with the independent lifestyle you’ve always wanted. Our L’Oréal Professional programs teach technical skills like hair cutting, texturing, nails, waxing and makeup, as well as skills to build your business, like state laws, product knowledge, and business management.

Once you’ve gone through the program, pass the Board exam, and get your cosmetology license, what are the options out in the professional world? For those who love the industry but want more options beyond the salon, a licensed cosmetologist has a wide variety of careers to choose from.

Personal stylists. From busy local professionals to global celebrities, demand is high for professional hair stylists and makeup artists to help them look their best before going on stage, on camera, or into an important meeting. A personal stylist has a close relationship with their clients, many times traveling to exciting locations with actors, musicians, and others to give them the perfect style on the go.

Fashion show stylists. Beauty is a must in the high-energy world of fashion, and fashion show stylists keep models looking great while they show off the latest trends. Runway shows provide great visibility for professional stylists and makeup artists to build their reputations.

Theater/film stylists. Behind the scenes of your favorite movie, series, or theater performance, there’s a bustle of activity while professional stylists and makeup artists deliver the perfect looks to match the costumes and themes. This exciting career is challenging, rewarding, and loads of fun.

Platform artists. After gaining expertise in your field, consider becoming a platform artist. These professionals perform at beauty conferences and industry events to showcase their one-of-a-kind techniques to other professionals.

Travel stylists. Cruise ships, exotic resorts, destination spas – they all need professional stylists and makeup artists to help guests look great on their vacations. The plus of this career is that you can travel the world on a cruise ship or settle into a faraway, exotic resort location to live out your dreams.
