Cosmetology students in SFSC's cosmetology labYou Have a Future in Cosmetology

In today’s appearance-conscious times, men and women alike are turning to cosmetologists for expert care of their hair, skin, and nails. Skilled cosmetologists not only enjoy steady employment but the satisfaction of being on the cutting edge of beauty trends and being able to build lasting relationships with their clients. Because of the nature of the work, cosmetologists often set their own schedules, and many SFSC cosmetology graduates go on to own salons.

  • The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that jobs in cosmetology will continue to grow faster than those in other fields for years to come.
  • A survey by U.S. News and World Report ranks cosmetology/hairstyling as number one in job satisfaction.
