Cosmetology Schools and Careers in Kansas City

If you want to become a cosmetologist in Kansas or Missouri, check out Kansas City. In 2018, it was named one of the best small cities in the country! In 2019, cosmetologists in the metro area earned a mean annual salary of $31,160 ($14.98 per hour). Missouri expects cosmetology jobs to grow by 6%, while Kansas expects job numbers to fall by 3%. However, those are statewide projections—Kansas City's population is growing, and the number of luxury apartments is increasing, so the chances for beauty employment may be different in the area.

Though Kansas City crosses state lines, Kansas and Missouri don't have automatic cosmetology licensure reciprocity. Be sure to check with each location's state board of cosmetology to ensure you meet all requirements if you are trained in one state and choose to practice in the other. Missouri requires cosmetologists to gain 1,500 hours of training or complete a 3,000-hour apprenticeship plus pass two exams. Kansas also expects 1,500 hours of training and passing scores on two exams but does not have an apprenticeship option. The Kansas City cosmetology schools below can help you earn licensure in their respective states.
