Hi Dakota,

I would recommend shadowing someone in these areas to see which you have a knack for! Personally, I believe each area has its own difficulties, so it depends on your experience. All of these require a cosmetology license and require different times of training lengths.

All of these businesses have a large market, but I would recommend doing some research in your own personal area, since many demographic factors affect the market in your area. For instance, if you live in an area that is predominantly middle-class working males, perhaps they would be less interested in such services. Do some market research, and moreover, evaluate the competition in your area. Perhaps there are 15 other nail salons in your city, all within a 2 mile radius. Would it really be necessary for one more? There would also be a lot of competition.

Good luck!

Amy’s Answer

I would just like to make an observation since I am not a cosmetologist. I recommend looking at it like this....

Sit and ask yourself these questions. Sometimes it helps to write out the answer.

What makes YOU like cosmetology? Which parts of it do YOU TRULY enjoy? Which can you see yourself doing every day for 8 hours and really loving it? That's where your focus should be.

Everyone who answers this has their own passion in it and it may not fit what YOU enjoy. You'll get your clients your way because they will see the passion you have for what you do and they will want to come to YOU. Good luck!

Karen’s Answer

Most cosmetologists specialize in hair, makeup or nails. I know a few cosmetologists, including my best friend, my brother and my hairdresser, and each of them have specialized in what they enjoy most. My brother loved doing hair, but does not enjoy doing nails or makeup. On the other hand, my best friend specializes in nails, and does some makeup on the side. In many cosmetology programs, you will learn all three, but don't necessarily have to do all three. Try it and see what you love!
