Personal Care Services - Cosmetology
Cosmetologists and barbers cut, trim, shampoo, style, color, bleach, highlight hair and offer permanent wave service. They also provide scalp and facial treatments and makeup analysis. These professionals typically work in a barber shop or salon. These programs prepare students for careers, including cosmetologists, estheticians, nail technicians, and barbers.
Physical stamina is important because workers are on their feet for most of their work day. All states require barbers and cosmetologists to be licensed, with the exception of shampoo technicians. To qualify for a license, candidates must graduate from a state‐approved cosmetology or barbering program.
