Cosmetology encompasses a broad range of specialty areas including hair styling, nail technology, and aesthetics.  For example, you can set your sights on becoming a color or texture specialist within your own salon or work for a product manufacturer. You may choose to seek a career as a salon trainer for a product company or large salon chain. Training can range from technical training, management, or interpersonal skills training. Maybe a job as a consultant or salon manager peaks your interest or the title "salon owner” has a pleasant ring. Once you complete your cosmetology training and obtain your license, the possibilities are limitless.
