We are often seen through our jobs, and it defines us - who we are, and what we stand for. No wonder choosing or changing a career can be quite intimidating. If you were already exploring the beauty industry, and your internal voice is still whispering ‘Is the beauty industry the right career path?’, keep reading to find signs that you should definitely go for a career in the beauty industry.
When it comes to career choices, not everybody will give you a stamp of approval. Sometimes it’s because of their own fears, and sometimes it’s because they feel like you will step out of their comfort zone. Either way, when it comes to choosing your career path and choosing the industry you want to build your reputation in, you should listen to yourself only. And surround yourself with people that have been there, that have stepped forward.
Over the years, we had a chance to see how beauty changes our students’ lives. Even though they all have their unique talents and aspirations, each one of them has been able to transform their lives so that they feel proud of what they’ve accomplished.
To help you check whether you should pursue a name in the beauty industry, you should ask yourself these questions:
● What would you like to be known for 5 years from now?
● What makes you feel accomplished?
● Who is responsible for your success?
If you’ve answered these questions, take a look at the things we’ve found it’s common for all our students that have created a successful careers in the beauty industry.
#1 You’ve had a lifelong interest in beauty
If you are interested in starting a career in beauty, you’ve probably paved your path to this place a long time ago. Even though the idea of beauty is always shifting, and trends are changing, you’ve probably always been interested in creating beauty.
Be it doing your nails, playing with mom’s makeup as a child, or exploring skin-care products.
#2 Your people skills are on point
Has anyone ever asked you how people love being around you? Or that your circle of friends is always changing and expanding? Do you make friends easily?
It’s safe to say that visiting a beauty salon is therapeutic. We enter the salon expecting that we’ll leave it feeling way better than going in. And nothing can spoil our expectations faster than a beauty artist that is not empathetic and lacks communication skills.
Empathy and the ability to communicate are the keys in this industry, so if you feel like people are turning to you whenever they need someone to talk to, you’ve made a giant step toward success in this ever-lasting industry.
#3 You are a self-starter
Even though the beauty industry is one of the most sustainable industries, and over the centuries it has been exponentially expanding, just like in medicine, you have to always keep yourself up to date.
To remain innovative, whether you have your salon, or you are working for/with someone else, it’s necessary to be self-motivated. To put it simply, you are the type of person that ‘gets the job done.
If you’ve noticed that over your life you’ve been setting and achieving goals, this means that you can rely on yourself to work as a beauty artist.
#4 Freedom is high on your list of values
Oftentimes, we forget what freedom is - an ability to choose. If you’ve always wanted to have a degree, certification, or skills, so that you can choose who you work for/with, you’ve been seeking freedom.
The more we accomplish, the more freedom we gain. And we are talking about freedom to create our lives the way we want.
#5 You truly like helping people
One of the greatest perks of being in the beauty industry is getting to see how people’s confidence transforms the moment they look in the mirror after the treatment.
Whether we are talking about a complete transformation or a light skin-care treatment, we all enter the beauty salon with the same goal. And it’s not to feel just beautiful, but to feel more confident.
The greatest beauty professionals started with the goal to make a difference in someone’s life, and for them, passion for helping others feel better about themselves never fades out.
