To the world, to the beauty industry, and to you.

In a world where many people aspire to be doctors, fire fighters, and lawyers, you may find yourself asking this question: how is cosmetology important? When you ask that, you’re really looking at the bigger picture, and that’s the perfect place to start.

How Cosmetology is Important to the World

Cosmetology has a rich history throughout all cultures of the world. Many people believe that the practice of using natural materials to beautify the face got its start in Ancient Egypt. Starting in Egypt and following in years to come, those who worked doing other’s hair and makeup were regarded as powerful because they alone controlled the way others were perceived.

In a more general sense, cosmetology and the beatification of others is important to the world because we see the outward appearance of everyone before we get to know each other. In fact, it’s estimated that first impressions are far more powerful and occur in the first few seconds of meeting. With cameras and visual social media being one of the most important ways of communicating, appearance has never been more important, both personally and professionally.

Think about your own self confidence and how that is affected depending on how your hair falls each day. Many people are highly affected by their outward appearance on an emotional level. Many aspects of the world run on first impressions, from job interviews to courting a potential love interest. Not all people have an affinity for doing their hair or makeup, so think about how different the world would be without professionals who do just that.

How Cosmetology is Important to the Beauty Industry

The beauty industry is a thriving place, and cosmetology plays a big part in that. According to Franchisehelp.com, hair care takes up 24% of the market share by revenue, skin care comes in at 23.7%, and cosmetics at 14.6%.

On the employment side, the demand for barbers, hairdressers, and cosmetologists is expected to grow 10% by 2024 and skincare specialists by 12% according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. Even better, the demand for men’s grooming services is rapidly gaining interest, meaning that cosmetologists who specialize in men’s cuts can potentially grow quickly. As you can see, cosmetologists help the overall beauty industry flourish with every year.

How Cosmetology is Important to You

Have you ever visited a specialty salon, a salon franchise, a blowout bar, a spa, or waxing specialist? There is a chance that the professional who helped you is a licensed cosmetologist. Without cosmetologists, the world would be filled with bad box-colored hair that just can’t be redeemed, and you’d probably still have the same style bangs that you cut yourself when you were six. The fact of the matter is, the world needs beauty professionals.

Cosmetology can affect you in more than one way. If you’re interested in a career within a fast-growing industry, one that can allow you to help people see themselves differently, then cosmetology might be the right choice. This can be your future, this can be your life. Spa Tech Institute offers a cosmetology course at our Westbrook, Maine campus! Contact us for more information on our program.
