The Growing Demand for Stylists/Cosmetologists

If you’ve been thinking about a career in cosmetology, now is the time to act. Job outlook research has shown that demand for cosmetologists is increasing, opening up a much broader market for your professional skills. Our Summit Salon Academy Kansas City L’Oréal Professional Academy cosmetology program will get you started on your career the right way, with skills that are in demand.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for barbers, stylists, and cosmetologists will increase by eight percent between 2018 and 2028, and that’s a faster job growth rate than the average of all jobs they analyze! With a growing population, the demand for hair care services will continue to grow. In addition to this amazing growth in demand for your career as a stylist/cosmetologist, you’ll benefit from all the perks that come from this fun and exciting career, such as:

  • Building relationships. Being a stylist/cosmetologist is the perfect career for people who love to meet people! Many of the treatments you’ll practice can take several hours to perform, which gives you plenty of time to really get to know your customers, as well as co-workers. Styling and other cosmetology services are very personal, and most people build close, personal relationships with their stylists/cosmetologists over time. In many cases, you’ll consider your guests as friends.
  • Variety. Besides working in a traditional salon & spa, there are plenty of other exciting options for stylists/cosmetologists, including working on cruise ships, providing styling services for celebrities, being a fashion show stylist, being a stylist for the film and theater industry, and much more.
  • Job satisfaction. There’s no better feeling than having a happy guest and knowing that the trendy style or the treatment plan that you’ve created has made your guests look and feel their best. Being a stylist/cosmetologist means being at the forefront of all the new trends and being able to share these ideas with your clientele.
  • Friendly, relaxed work environment. Salons and spas pride themselves on being that place where their guests can relax and de-stress, away from problems at work and hectic family commitments. As salons and spas go out of their way to create this relaxing environment for your guests, you benefit by working in a friendly, relaxed, positive environment all day long.

These are all great news for our students at Summit Salon Academy, where we are eager to help you get a jump start on this exciting career. Our 1500-hour program prepares you with everything you need to take the State Board exam for your cosmetology license, including:
