Have You Considered Teaching In The Beauty Industry?

There are many options for you in the beauty industry. One  career path many overlook: Beauty Educator

It’s not just a job

Teaching is not something to just pay the bills. It’s not a profession where you count down the hours left in the day. It’s a career, but it’s still much more than that. By becoming a teacher, you’re leaving a lasting legacy on the world by providing love and support to students. You’re giving them the tools to live happy and productive lives.

Being a teacher is a fulfilling career.  You get to help enrich student’s lives, not just through core educational skills like cutting hair, perming, and hair coloring, but also responsibility, analytical skills, and building self-confidence.

Nothing makes a teacher prouder than seeing their students succeed, knowing they have helped give them the skills they need for the future. You’ll find that many teachers relish in their teaching careers due to the rewarding aspects of the job.

Influencing the Future

As a teacher, you are giving students the skills they need to go out into the world and succeed. It really doesn’t matter at what stage in a student’s life this happens, so whether you are teaching five-year-olds letter sounds or cosmetology students about business skills, you are giving them what they need to go on and do bigger and better things and build upon those skills.

Help Build Self-Esteem

Teaching isn’t all about learning Hairstyling, Nail Tech, or Makeup Artistry. It’s about building confidence in students to help them with the drive to succeed. Academically, this could be helping a student get through a lesson they find particularly difficult. Spending that little bit of extra time to get them through something they’re struggling with and seeing how excited they are when they start to make connections makes it all worth it.

This isn’t just when it comes to academic things though; it can be about making friends, finding the encouragement to present in front of the class or even with some guidance on what to do for the future in the beauty industry. You are your students’ biggest cheerleader in school, so let them know about it and give them the self-confidence they need to keep going.

You Get to Work in a Fun, Creative Setting

Long gone are the days where classrooms were drab and dull, and the only colour around was that on the textbooks. Now classrooms are fun, vibrant places of learning where creativity is encouraged. The salon floor is also your classroom.  You get to make it a welcoming place that your students (and you!) will want to spend their days in. How many other professions allow you to do that?

Every Day is Different and Exciting

Teaching means that every day is different, no mundane or repetitive work here! Sure, you will have to grade papers, have routine meetings, and do paperwork, but for the most part, no two days are the same. Every day you will work on different tasks with your students, and of course, they will never bore you either!

Each day is a chance to work with young minds and teach new things. One thing you will see every day, though, is the smiles on student’s faces as they work and learn in the classroom and on the salon floor.

You Impact Your Student’s Futures

Students will come into your classroom excited to learn what it takes to succeed, and there is really nothing better than seeing your students eager to learn. Reading about a topic is great, but putting it into action is even better, such as learning a new color technique or designing their own salon. The bonds you form with students are many times life-long. Seeing them succeed in the beauty industry after graduation is the best feeling in the world!

Convinced yet?

Teaching isn’t for just anybody. But if the classroom is calling, you may just have what it takes—compassion, generosity and a dedication to positively influencing the lives of others. The world needs more people like you. Pursue your passions and turn your love of beauty into a meaningful career as an educator.
