Cosmetology Schools and Careers in Phoenix

If working in a spa environment appeals to you, look no further than Phoenix. Two of the Forbes top 10 spa resorts in the country are within 100 miles or less of Phoenix, with a host of others in the Phoenix metro area. Of course salons also abound—which is a good thing, since the city's extreme climate makes it one of the worst cities in the country for hair. In May 2019, cosmetologists in the metro Phoenix area earned a mean salary of $32,670 per year ($15.71 per hour). The job growth projection for cosmetologists in Arizona is 10% between 2016 and 2026, which is higher than the national average.
