How a Skincare Teaching Certificate Can Improve Your Career
Few estheticians explore the benefits of becoming an esthetics instructor. Nevertheless, the education sector can be a rewarding place to further your esthetics career. Beyond the potential for an increase in salary, esthetics instructors benefit from increased stability, opportunity for advancement, and personal impact. Read on to learn if esthetics education is the right career path for you.
Though being an esthetician can be rewarding, some estheticians feel hindered by the pressure to upsell, build a clientele, and work nights and weekends. For esthetics instructors, many of these stressors are eliminated. With the burdens of business removed, instructors can simply focus on teaching excellence in their craft. And while some instructors may work irregular hours, daytime classes are available for those who prefer a more traditional schedule.
Opportunity for Advancement
After estheticians have mastered the art of skincare, they may wish to progress in their careers. While some estheticians go on to become spa owners and managers, it can be difficult for them to advance to academic administration. Esthetics instructors, on the other hand, have the knowledge necessary to become beauty school managers and administrators, as well as state board examiners. Esthetics instructors gifted with the art of persuasion and an entrepreneurial spirit may also land jobs as product representatives and educational consultants, providing them with a wide variety of career opportunities.
Esthetics instructors are leaders of change and beacons of inspiration. Under the instruction of a talented teacher, students gain wisdom, minimize bad habits, and learn how to properly attend to the details many estheticians overlook. Instructors, in turn, improve the skincare industry at large – not to mention the lives of their students. When students follow the guidance of a positive role model, they are instilled with confidence, vision, and motivation to become experts in their field. Once licensed, these students can then help clients feel good in their own skin, as well. It’s a trickle-down effect that all begins in the classroom.

How a Cosmetology Teacher Training Certificate Can Improve Your Career
Few stylists explore the benefits of becoming a cosmetology teacher. Nevertheless, the education sector can be a rewarding place to further your cosmetology career. Beyond the potential for an increase in salary, cosmetology instructors benefit from great opportunities for professional growth, personal fulfillment, and creative freedom. Read on to learn if cosmetology education is right for you.
Opportunities for Professional Growth
Though many stylists open and run their own salons, it can be difficult for traditional cosmetologists to break into academic administration. Cosmetology teachers, however, often move on to become beauty school managers and administrators, not to mention state board examiners. Teachers gifted with the art of persuasion and an entrepreneurial spirit may also land jobs as product representatives and educational consultants, providing them with a wide variety of career opportunities.
While most cosmetologists would agree that it is rewarding to help clients look and feel their best, it can be even more fulfilling to prepare aspiring hair and makeup artists for their dream careers. After all, cosmetology teachers do not squander their talent to make others feel beautiful – they increase it tenfold by equipping their students with the same power. In fact, cosmetology instructors have the ability to improve the beauty industry at large. With every class they teach, instructors have a platform to impart wisdom, inspire vision, minimize bad habits, and train students to perfect the details that many stylists overlook.
Lesson planning offers cosmetology instructors a creative outlet that the average salon simply might not. After all, salons typically perform the same rotation of services week after week. Yet, what seasoned cosmetologists tend to forget is that most of them are artists at heart. Sometimes, it is refreshing to break out of the cut-and-color rut and craft an avant-garde updo, or a dramatic makeup look fit for the runway. Fortunately, in cosmetology school, these types of projects are encouraged. And though teachers may spend more time instructing than designing such looks themselves, it can be satisfying to work in a creative environment that nourishes the inner artist in every student.

Summer is in full swing, and that means shorts, sandals, and fun in the sun. Many people turn to hair school students and professionals for guidance as they search for a more manageable look to combat the heat without sacrificing style.
That’s why as a cosmetology program student, it is extremely important to stay up-to-date on all the latest style trends so you can properly advise customers and give them a look that exceeds their expectations. Whether your clients want a more natural style or a bold new look, adding these easy style tips to your summer look book will enhance your cosmetology skills and make customers come back for more!
Chic Ways to Keep it Simple This Summer
Keep Hair Natural this Summer
Sleek, straightened hair and voluminous curls were perfect for holiday parties and cold winter days. However, living in the South, you quickly learn that humidity adds extra difficulty to hair styling. Encouraging your clients to embrace a more natural look will save them time and effort, allowing them to focus all their energy on summer adventure.
Style your clients’ hair with long layers; this gives them some natural volume as well as more freedom to experiment with different looks. Simple braids or buns make even the messiest hair look chic, while headbands, barrettes, and other accessories add a level of sophistication to any style.
Additionally, coloring techniques like Balayage create a stunning, sun-kissed effect. This freehand technique gives clients multidimensional movement that requires very little maintenance. If your client is hesitant to revamp their color, try suggesting a neutral color. This trend is quickly gaining popularity, as its balance of warm and cool tones creates a soft, natural look that flatters any complexion.
Be Brave, Go Bold
Summer is a time when many people get the itch to change things up in ways they wouldn’t think of in the winter or fall. Some clients are more adventurous than others when it comes to their hair, but including these styles in your look book will surely impress even your boldest customers this summer. If you are looking to stay cool, nothing is more effective than a fresh cut and style.
Encourage your clients to go short; it will leave their hair feeling lightweight and cool with little daily styling necessary. Bobs are always a go-to for summer, and you can easily tailor them to each individual client’s needs by changing up the length and angles to make the look flirtier or edgier. For the extremely daring, suggest buzzing your clients hair. Although they are not for everyone, buzzcuts have risen in popularity recently for women in search of high-fashion looks with no maintenance.
For those that are hesitant to lose overall length, suggest a subtly bold look. Cut bangs to be about an inch or an inch and a half long for a fun twist on typical fringe that is both flirty and daring. For bold color, suggest a slight ombré or color bleed with bright or pastel tones. Adding a pop of color at the ends of the hair draws attention but requires fewer touch-ups than overall color.
Ditch the Heat this Summer
Above all, encourage your clients to avoid curling irons and straighteners this season. Summer is all about beachy waves and laid back vibes, so why add more unnecessary heat damage? By adding texture spray and scrunching or braiding hair, you can achieve messy beach waves without the heat. For those with curlier hair, advise them to embrace their natural curls and simply add products to reduce frizz.
These simple styles are perfect to help your clients beat the Southern heat and enjoy all the excitement this summer has to offer.
