Switch to Beauty School in the New Year

We still can’t believe it, but 2019 is almost here! Here at Elevate Salon Institute (ESI), Chubbuck, we love this time of year because it often gives people the confidence to start fresh in an aspect of their life. You deserve to do what makes you happy and if you’ve found that you’re stuck in something that doesn’t feel right, then making a New Year’s resolution can be a great way to change it. One of the best things you can do in 2019 is to invest in yourself and your education!

If you’re thinking about making some changes in your educational goals, then we’ve got some good news for you. Some students feel like there’s an expectation that you’re required to sign up for a traditional four-year college. Since not everyone fits into a college setting, it may be a good idea to explore other options for you. Here’s why applying to beauty school in 2019 is a valid alternative to traditional college.

There are Multiple Career Options Available

Maybe you decided to enroll in a traditional college because you wanted to learn skills that could apply to different career options. Well good news, because beauty school offers just that! While some people thrive in a salon setting, there are many who prefer to work in different areas in the beauty industry. Maybe you want to work with models and photographers as an editorial stylist so you can be involved behind the scenes of getting people photo-ready. You may be eager to be your own boss and want to be a salon owner. You could be an online beauty blogger or vlogger. These are just some of the careers you can pursue as a beauty school graduate!

This is an Industry That is Constantly Changing

Speaking of the different career options you can pursue as a beauty graduate, you can expect the beauty industry to always be changing and adapting to the newest trends. That means that even as you work in your chosen profession, your creativity may always be put to the test. This can sound like a dream come true to those who always loved the subjects in school that challenged you to think outside the box.

Everybody Has a Different Way of Learning

Not everyone can thrive in a traditional college setting, but that doesn’t mean your skills aren’t just as valuable. If you’ve found yourself struggling to keep up with the demands of college, then you might find that beauty school could be more your style. There’s nothing wrong with preferring to learn hands-on than in a classroom setting. In fact, the world would be a boring place if everyone learned the same and had the same skills. So don’t feel bad if you don’t like the college experience, but allow yourself to pursue something that you will enjoy doing.

You Can Make Money

If college isn’t right for everyone, why do some people decide to suffer through it? For some people, the answer to that question is money. Many people go to college because they’ve been taught that it’s the only way they’ll be able to make a decent wage. This is just another assumption of college that’s not true. As you graduate, your first thought will be to look for a steady career where you can start earning money. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job market for cosmetologists has risen in the past few years and will continue to rise. The employment for Barbers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists is expected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026. With the job market going up in the beauty industry, it’s clear that you can make money doing what you love!

Beauty School Can Save You Time

Let’s face it, four years is a long time and some people might not want to spend all those years in school before entering the working world. That’s why, depending on your schedule, beauty school can be a great option for those not looking to spend all that time in the classroom. As a full-time student at ESI Chubbuck, you can graduate in as little as three and a half months to seventeen months depending on the program you choose. If you want to discover where your career can take you as soon as possible, you might want to consider applying for beauty school.
