Nowadays, there aren’t many –if at all- careers which are exclusively for males or females. Gone are the days when some fields were reserved for one gender or the other. The field of cosmetology is one of those that have seen a gender transformation. What used to be viewed as a female-only zone, is now 16 percent male and growing, according to the American Association of Cosmetology Schools. That number is only expected to grow.
Men enroll in cosmetology school for the same reasons women do: to gain skills, embark on a profitable career path and enjoy a flexible career. Having the skills needed to work in the industry of cosmetology is imperative to stay up to date on the latest industry trends. Students who graduate from a cosmetology program will have the knowledge necessary to work for themselves in their own establishment, if they so please, or go with an established salon, after obtaining the required state license.
Another reason why men join cosmetology schools is to step foot into a future career, one that allows you to stand out and make a name for themselves. Cosmetology school is a trade program that prepares students in as little as 12 months for careers in hair styling, salon ownership, makeup, skincare, and barbering.
At Florida Technical College, cosmetology school is made easy. The program is offered on three campuses: DeLand, Kissimmee, and Pembroke Pines. If you want a beauty industry career, now is a great time to prepare for it. Why hold on to that dead-end job that you have no passion for? Contact FTC today to find out more about cosmetology school and how to enroll. You’ll be on your way to a better future.
FTC’s Cosmetology school will provide you with hands-on experience to immediately insert yourself in the job market after obtaining your cosmetology state-required license. Whatever your motivation is, FTC can help you achieve your goal.
