Cosmetology Schools near Minneapolis / St. Paul, MN

If you're a Minnesotan hoping to become a cosmetologist, Minneapolis could be a great place to begin. While there are, of course, many salons and beauty supply businesses, the city may be perfect for those who want to work performing arts makeup without paying New York City rent—Minneapolis' theatre district is bustling. In fact, the state as a whole boasts the second-highest number of live theatre seats per capita in the country. The city paid cosmetologists a mean salary of $34,520 per year ($16.59 per hour) as of 2018—about $3,000 more than the national average. Minnesota is anticipating a 7% growth in cosmetology careers between 2016 and 2026 as well.
