Job Outlook Increase

Working as a Cosmetology Instructor

Moving from a cosmetology career to a cosmetology teaching career is a big change. You may notice that you have a more regular schedule, particularly when you get assigned classes. You may or may not work weekends, depending on the student base of your beauty school and the needs of your beauty program. However, you should still maintain some flexibility, since being available to answer students’ questions and provide additional help can make a huge difference in their success. Teaching may also require you to take your work home occasionally, particularly when it comes to grading, creating a curriculum, and communicating with students.
