If You Love Nails, You Might Love Cosmetology

So you’re interested in pursuing a career in the beauty world. Awesome! Now, it’s time to research schools and programs. When looking at different beauty schools, you may find that there are many programs to choose from.

Some common programs offered are esthetics, barbering, nail tech, and cosmetology. All of these are great choices if you know exactly what kind of career you want for yourself. If you love all things beauty and don’t have an exact career path to follow – maybe you’re open to different possibilities – then there’s a program that can set you up with the skills you may need to find the career for you: Cosmetology!

With more knowledge and a wide-ranging skill set, you can add more services to your resume and/or service menu, set yourself apart from others, and have more career opportunities available. Let’s dig into the benefits.

Cosmetology Includes Nails

When you think of cosmetology, you might think of hair coloring and hair cutting, but did you know that cosmetology is so much more than hair?

The definition of cosmetology, according to Merriam-Webster is: the cosmetic treatment of the skin, hair, and nails. Yes, cosmetology includes skin, hair, AND nails! At Aveda Institute Idaho, our cosmetology program curriculum includes:

  • The History of Cosmetology
  • Anatomy
  • Chemistry of Color
  • Safety & Sanitation
  • Manicures & Pedicures
  • Makeup Application
  • Waxing
  • Marketing
  • Networking
  • Self-Promotion
  • Financial Planning
  • And More

At our campuses in Boise and Twin Falls, we also offer unique opportunities for guest artists and specialty classes. Make sure to ask us what we’ve got coming up!

Cosmetology Can Make You More Marketable

Because most cosmetology programs include learning makeup, waxing, and hair as well as manicures and pedicures, you can feel confident in knowing you have a wide range of skills.

These skills can open doors to opportunities you never thought possible. When you send in your resume, you can put every single skill you learned while in school, and once you have an interview you can share details about what you can do for them.

Choose to enroll in a cosmetology program to set yourself apart from the competition even if you only want to pursue a career in nails!

Cosmetology Can Have Many Career Opportunities

A benefit to enrolling in a cosmetology program is the option to pursue many different careers outside of or in addition to manicuring. Yes, the schooling is longer but when you’re done with school, your opportunities can be greater.

The most common career path for those with cosmetology licenses are hairstylists and nail technicians, but there are so many more fun career paths you can pursue. Let’s take a look at some of the careers and jobs you can have with a cosmetology license:

Content Writer in the Beauty Industry

A beauty content writer can work at many different beauty businesses like a hair salon, nail salon, an esthetician salon, or maybe even a company like Kylie Cosmetics. You could write about the top five nail trends this fall or what shape of nails is best for you!

Whatever kind of beauty business you choose to pursue in the industry, with your well-rounded knowledge through a cosmetology program, you can write some amazing content!

Salon Owner/Manager

Another option is to own your own salon or be a manager! In Aveda Institute Idaho’s cosmetology program, you can not only learn all about cosmetology but also manicures and pedicures, safety and sanitation, makeup application, and waxing. Your salon could specialize in nails or have multiple services like nails, hair, and skin.

By having knowledge in all of these areas, you can be a better future salon owner or manager. You can know a little of what your future employees or fellow co-workers go through, which can help you sympathize with them and create an amazing work place!

A Beauty Social Media Manager

Are you a social media guru? Combine your passions and become a social media manager in the beauty world! Every day you can create amazing content through images and videos to help market a beauty salon and/or beauty brand.

Again, having the knowledge from a cosmetology program can prepare you to know what and how to market any beauty company you work for – whether its nails, hair, or skin – in the best ways!

Other Career Opportunities Include:

  • Wedding or Event Stylist
  • Makeup Artist
  • Beauty Magazine Editor
  • Beauty School Instructor
