Beauty Salaries in Dallas

  • Manicurists: $17,380 to $46,410 per year

  • Keep in mind that these are just starting points for figuring out what type of salary you can earn. There are many different career paths in this field.

You can also rent a chair at a salon, pay a chair rental fee, and collect your own payments and tips. Becoming a salon owner offers an entirely different salary range.

    License Requirements in Texas

    Your licensing journey begins before you even select a school. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation requires you to complete a certain amount of training hours before you are eligible for licensure. The educational requirements are as follows:

  • Cosmetologist or barber: 1,500 hours
  • Esthetician: 750 hours
  • Nail technician: 600 hours
  • The Department will verify that you've completed your required hours and then allow you to take your skills exam and written exam. You receive a two-year license after passing these exams.

    Getting Around and Networking

    It's easy to get around Dallas and go to class or work with Dallas Area Rapid Transit. If your school participates in the DART Higher Education program, you may be eligible for lower fares.

    Networking is a crucial part of your beauty career! Today's biggest style may be outdated next week, and you must stay on top of trends to succeed in this industry. Consider joining a local beauty group, like the Dallas Beauticians Association. You can also join a national organization, as these groups often have area meetings that allow you to connect with successful cosmetologists in your area. One popular choice is the Professional Beauty Association.
