If you have been thinking about starting a career in the beauty industry, but have been hesitant to be working in a salon, there is something you should know.

Not all cosmetologists work in salons.

Cosmetology is an exciting career that is full of a wide variety of opportunities and career tracks – many of which you may not have heard of!

If you are interested in a career in beauty, make sure you take a look at all of the program options that we offer at Moler Beauty Academy. We are dedicated to helping each of our students reach their dreams.

Here are a few of the coolest places for a cosmetologist to work:


Woman working in a salon

A salon may not be your ideal place to work, but it could be a better fit than you think! When you find a salon with the people, atmosphere, and location that fit perfectly with your personality a position at a salon can easily become a dream job!

Even if working in a salon is not where you see yourself in ten years, they can be a great place to start your career. When you are right out of school they present an opportunity for you to gain practical work experience, strengthen your skills, and meet people in the industry.

Working in a salon can also help you discover other avenues in the beauty industry that you want to pursue, and help you find your dream job!

In The Limelight

If you have always found yourself a little star struck with the hair and makeup you see on TV and in the movies, then working in the entertainment industry might be your perfect fit. People who are in the public eye need to have a stylist who can help them with hair and makeup, and working backstage can give you a front row seat to creating the newest trends and styles.

Finding jobs in the entertainment sector of the beauty industry can be tricky, but with extensive knowledge and experience you can get there! You can build an education, complete with knowledge of best practices and beauty products, that can help you reach the stars (literally) with Moler Beauty Academy!

Product Ambassadors

Many of the most well known beauty products need representatives who know the products and are eager and ready to showcase them. These product ambassadors may journey to beauty schools, or beauty shows around the country to educate and train current and future professionals.

Some even feature their products as they work with models and designers at some major fashion shows! If you are eager to teach, and may even have an itch to rub elbows with some major creative powerhouses, this path might be for you.

Special Effects

Special effect makeup and prosthetics

We already mentioned hair and makeup done behind the scenes, but this future career takes it a step further. Monsters. Mermaids. A damsel out of another time. You would be amazed all the things that you can create with a cosmetology education and a whole lot of imagination.

While this future may need some further training, it could open up a whole new world of opportunity for you as well!

Be Your Own Boss

One of the aspects of cosmetology that drive many to the industry is that it can give you freedom in both schedule and creativity. In fact, many of our graduates go on to start their own businesses! Some open up their own salons while others may build up a clientele and go on the road. There are so many possibilities in cosmetology!

This flexibility is a feature that you don’t see in many other professions, and is helpful to many aspiring creatives so that they can balance, life, family, and anything in between. Whatever your situation may be, you will likely be able to find a work environment that can work well for you.
