There is really nothing like being in the beauty business…

It keeps on getting bigger and better! People finally look at our business with RESPECT. They no longer look down on our career – actually; they wish they had gotten into it!

More and more people of all ages are taking a second look at our industry and thinking of all the opportunities that are offered in the wonderful world of cosmetology. They see how this business allows for flexibility, financial independence, creativity, happiness, and career security. They are opening their eyes to the endless choices in hair, skin, and nails. It is unbelievable what you can do today within this business from styling hair, to owning your own salon/spa, to becoming a traveling platform artist, or even working with TV and Motion pictures…the list goes on and on!

I have personally explored many aspects of our field and continue to find more areas I would like to experience. This is the type of industry that has real growth potential. The beauty industry will never die. It is that one luxury where no matter what is going on with the economy, people somehow manage to find the funds for their personal needs.

Not only is the consistency of the field great but it is a FUN position. We actually have great daily work. There are many rewarding moments cosmetologists experience that most careers cannot offer. How many people can honestly say they love their job? Ask any beauty professional and take a look at the smile on their face.

Beauty school provides a great foundation and gives you the basic training for a career in the cosmetology industry. But the ultimate success will come from how you apply years of wisdom and proven techniques designed to give you a distinct advantage in your journey.

You may have had some real world training experience while in school. This will also help make your transition into the beauty industry a smooth one. According to industry experts, however, your formal educational foundation only contributes 15% of your success. The other 85% comes from understanding and applying Soft Skills.

Your formal education combined with the important philosophies and recommendations you will find in this book can make a defining difference in your career and in your personal success. The key is application. The goal of this book is to help you move forward with some exceptional information and ideas to make your journey an awesome and memorable ride!

A NEW SHEAR MOMENT

By Marie Greco-Jager

Last week, I had an older man  (around his late 80’s) come in to get his four week clip. He told me he likes to keep his hair nice and tight nowadays. “You know…” he said, “you probably wouldn’t recognize me, as years ago I had a full head of thick, black, curly hair!”

He then went on to tell me “Yeah, my hair has really thinned out a lot over the years.” There was a long pause, and then out of nowhere he says… “Well you know what they say, you come into the world bald and with no teeth, and you leave the same way!
