CONTINUING EDUCATION - LOUISIANA

Continuing Education
IN
Louisiana

Have you been working in the beauty industry for awhile? Are you looking to grow and develop, find new challenges, and increase your earnings, while staying within the field you have come to know and enjoy?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, what you are probably looking for can be found in continued education programs in Louisiana. Through continuing education, you can take your career to the next level, opening up new opportunities, taking on new challenges, and moving your career upwards and onwards.

Where to Find Continuing Education
Cosmetology Schools
Large Salons
Trade Shows

Fortunately, continuing education opportunities in Louisiana are readily available. You can find them at the beauty school you went to originally, or one conveniently located near where you work or live. Some of the larger salons offer workshops and seminars to update your skills in a particular area or technique, although you may need to be an employee of the salon to take these courses. And you can find continuing education opportunities at trade shows, where companies offering different products and services in the beauty industry come together to market their new offerings and teach you how to use them. What is great about trade shows is that you can browse many new products and services all in the same location, and choose which ones are of interest to you to get trained in.

Education Details

Continuing education courses are your key to staying fresh and current in the industry. Your clients are very aware of what is new and exciting, and you need to be one step ahead of them, able to answer their questions and create the latest designs in hair and makeup. Again, continuing education courses can be the answer. As you would expect, the range of courses, workshops, and seminars you can take is very wide. You can learn the latest hair straightening technique, hone your skills in customer satisfaction, or learn about the business side of the beauty industry as a steppingstone to a higher position.

Careers
$23,970
Average

On average, cosmetologists, hair dressers and hair designers in Louisiana earned a yearly income of $22,100 in 2013, according to statistics provided by O*Net. And the field is growing at a good rate, meaning jobs should be readily available and opportunities for advancement are good. Also, what you actually earn depends upon many factors including your skill level, the type of salon or spa you work at, and how many loyal customers you have, as well as the specific procedures you perform. By taking continuing education courses, you will be enhancing your skills and possibly putting yourself in a position to earn a higher income. For example, the latest hair straightening methods require that you be trained in how to apply them. When you offer them to your customers, you stand to earn a particularly high fee for that service, often between $250 and $350 per treatment.

After Continuing Education

It is important to continually upgrade your skills, and it is equally important that you let people know about your enhanced capacities! Perhaps the spa or salon you work at will advertise your new services in the newspaper, on radio, or online. Or you might want to send out announcement cards to your regular customers. You might even consider providing your new service without charge to a couple of especially loyal customers who are well connected and could spread the word. If you have been taking business courses, you might look into becoming an assistant manager at your present location. As a hair dresser, hair stylist, or cosmetologist, most of your work is one-on-one with individual clients, and usually by appointment. This gives you some scheduling leeway, depending upon the policies of your salon or spa, but you will need to be available when your customers want to utilize your services which means working some evenings and weekends. Still the beauty industry offers opportunities to work full and part time, and to incorporate your work life in with your home life successfully.
