Continuing Education

If there’s one thing you know about the beauty industry, it’s that it never changes. The same styles stay popular year after year, right?

Actually, change is constant in the beauty industry! Techniques, coloring trends, and hot styles change on a regular basis.

Where to Find Continuing Education
Education Details

One of the biggest benefits of continuing education is the variety of options you have as a beauty professional. Your place of employment may require you to complete training in specific areas, so you may want to check with your manager before enrolling in continuing education courses. Business management courses may be right up your alley if you have aspirations of leadership or salon ownership. If you want to work on your practical skills, you can take courses on coloring techniques, styling tools, and new items that are being used in your field.

All other beauty licensees must complete four hours of continuing education during each two-year period. These CEUs must focus on infection control and maintaining a safe environment for your clients.


Boosting your income potential and job outlook is possible with continuing education. The more current and diverse your skills, the more of an asset you may be to local employers. Job openings for Nevada cosmetologists are expected to increase by 13% through 2022, according to O*Net. The average salary for a Nevada cosmetologist is $22,200 per year (O*Net, 2014).

After Continuing Education

Your daily work may change as you enroll in continuing education classes every year. If you decide to study salon management, you may take on a supervisory role or train new employees. If you learn new skills and techniques, you may be able to attract a new client base. That’s what’s so exciting about continuing education—you can think about the direction you want your career to take, choose the appropriate courses, and keep on working toward your goals. Continuing education may also help you more effectively carry out the daily duties of your work. For example, staying up-to-date on new haircutting styles and techniques is necessary if you want to keep your clients coming back to your chair. The courses you choose may also make you an indispensable part of your salon.
