Did You Know?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for Cosmetologists is projected to grow by 8% from 2018-2028? That’s faster than the average of all occupations. The demand for hair coloring, hair straightening and other advanced hair treatments have also risen over the years and will continue to rise in years to come. A number of job openings will also stem from people who change professions, retire or leave due to other non related reasons, which will open up more doors and provide more opportunity for our students.
