Finding Cosmetology Jobs
Jump to Your Question:
- Will beauty schools help me find a job after I graduate?
- How do I find a beauty school's graduation rate, dropout rate or job placement rate?
- What other resources can help me network in the beauty industry?
- Will my salon or spa employer provide my tools and beauty products, or do I supply my own?
Many beauty schools and cosmetology schools do offer cosmetology job placement services for their recent graduates. The admissions representatives can confirm if they offer such services when you request information from beauty schools you are considering. If they do offer cosmetology job placement services, ask what their job placement rate is after graduation.
You can also find cosmetology jobs and beauty jobs on the My Social Beauty job board. Salon and spa employers nationwide are posting more beauty jobs and cosmetology job openings daily. Browse tons of cosmetology jobs and post pictures of your work in a Beauty LookBook and start applying!
How do I find a beauty school's graduation rate or dropout rate, and cosmetology job placement rate?
The quickest and easiest way to find out a beauty school's graduation rate is to request information from cosmetology schools directly through our site. Be sure to include any specific questions you have about graduation and dropout rates in the "additional questions or comments" box at the bottom of each form. You may also wish to ask about how many people land cosmetology jobs after graduating beauty school in order to make your educated decision. You can also try contacting the licensing board for the state you're considering going to school in for more information about the schools in that area.

If you work hourly or on salary for a professional salon, the company will most likely provide all supplies, tools and products to perform cosmetology services. From your client chair to makeup brushes to root lifter spray, you may be fully stocked by your new salon employer. Some salons, spas and other beauty businesses may also have contracts with specific suppliers to provide the beauty products and tools.
However, if you are a booth renter, you are technically considered to be in business for yourself, and merely renting space from the building owner, so they probably will not provide your supplies and products. If you are renting a booth at a salon or other beauty business, or simply choose to work independently at your own business, you will probably have to provide all of your own beauty tools, supplies and products.
