Cosmetology Schools and Careers in Orlando

If you want to work as a cosmetologist in sunny Florida, Orlando or Daytona Beach may be the perfect places to begin your career. Orlando is, of course, known for its theme parks—but for the parents, many of the attached hotels offer salons and spas. Daytona does not lack in this area either, and both cities have a plethora of wedding and special events venues you could work in as well. As of 2018, cosmetologists in Orlando made a mean salary of $28,160 per year ($13.54 mean wage per hour), while those in Daytona Beach made $32,180 ($15.47). Florida expects cosmetology jobs to grow by 17% between 2016 and 2026, which is 8% higher than the national average for this career.

Florida requires its cosmetologists to complete 1,200 hours of training and pass two licensure exams before beginning work. The Orlando and Daytona Beach schools below will help you become a cosmetologist in the state.
