What do you consider when choosing a career? Maybe the amount of education required, work schedule, or personal growth? It can be pretty stressful to know which career has your name on it, but Ohio State School of Cosmetology (OSSC) can help! Today the beauty industry is bigger and more in-demand than ever. Here are five reasons why OSSC could be the right choice for you!
1. Flexible Schedule
Depending on where you work, (especially self-employed or freelance cosmetologists) you create your own schedule, which means you work when you want and how much you want. Having a flexible schedule compatible with your life is huge! Some cosmetologists like to work only in the mornings to be home when their kids are out of school. Others like to work evenings so they have the whole day free. Some cosmetologists only work three or four days a week and have long weekends, while others like to work Monday through Friday. Whatever your schedule, whether you’re a full-time platform artist or a full-time mother, cosmetology provides flexibility. And, while you’re in school, OSSC has scheduling options to meet your needs!
2. Constant Change
The beauty industry is constantly changing with new hairstyles, haircuts, hair colors, and more! Cosmetologists create these changes. By staying on top of what’s new, and educating your clients, you help your clients have the beautiful and healthy hair they want. You will guide these amazing changes for them! And, they will think you are a rock star! ‘Cause you are!
Trends are always changing in the beauty industry. Trends can be new and effective ways to care for hair, whether it’s a new cut, hair color, treatment or hairstyle! Being a cosmetologist allows you to not only follow trends, but to be the trendsetter!
3. Unlimited Creativity
Is being creative a must for you? With every client who walks through your door, there is an opportunity for creativity. Whether it’s a simple highlight or a drastic cut, each client goes from a work in progress to a work of art. Trends change every season, and there is always something new to learn. Your artistic love for creating beauty could make cosmetology the way to go, and OSSC the right school for you!
4. Meet New People
As a cosmetologist, you will constantly meet new people. Clients learn to trust your skills, and you create lasting relationships. They will refer their friends to you. You will become involved in every major event in their lives: graduations, birthdays, and weddings. Each person you come in contact with is a potential client.
5. Start Your Career Quickly
Another amazing benefit of cosmetology is that the education requirements are way quicker than going to a traditional four-year or two-year college. Ohio only requires 1500 hours for a cosmetology license, which means you get started faster creating beauty! OSSC also offers a shorter, 1200 hour course, that does not include skin care and nail technology, if they are not your thing.
