Upscale Salons

This is probably the first thing that people think of when they think about a career in beauty. Whether they be trendy, ritzy, themed, mom & pop or somewhere in between there is always a need for beauty professionals in this area. Many salons will also include esthetics services to their clients alongside the cosmetology services, making it a perfect blend for any beauty based professional.

Spas and Retreats

The calming music, the dimmed lights as someone carefully places mud on your face. Spas or day retreats are popping up all over the country, with a demand that is growing more and more each year. While many are more focused toward the esthetics services than the cosmetology, having hair salon services included in a spa or retreat is becoming even more popular, giving beauty professionals a wider net to find their perfect place.

Destination Resorts

Cruise ships, island resorts, hot springs, even upscale theme parks all have salons and spa’s incorporated on site. It gives their guests the perfect add on to an amazing vacation, and gives you the opportunity to snag your dream job.


The name may be boring, but what it includes is anything but. Movies, television, print ads. No matter what medium, the need for beauty professionals is wide. You could style hair on a soundstage, pampering models the night before a shoot, creating the perfect look for a television pilot. The opportunities here truly are endless.

Health and Service

Sometimes you just need a day to yourself. Unfortunately, sometimes you are unable to get one. While this path may not be a high-paying dream job, the community give-back is needed and means the world to those on the receiving end. You could give pampering facials to domestic abuse victims, or teach cancer patients how to style a wig. There are so many options for service in the beauty community, we really prompt everyone to give back, to share their art and passion to someone in need in their lives. You will be surprised at the impact it makes.
