Are you looking for a career change and are passionate about all things beauty? Try a career change into the beauty industry! If you’re feeling stuck in a rut, it’s probably time to change careers. This is totally normal and something anyone may deal with in their lifetime! One of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself is follow your dreams and passions. And no better time than the present!

No matter your age or how long you’ve been in your current career, it’s never too late to switch paths. We might be biased, but the beauty industry is a great career field to join. Your job is to make people feel good about themselves – the beauty industry is in fact, beautiful. It’s rewarding and allows you to tap into your creativity. Here are our top 3 reasons why you should consider a career change into beauty.

You may graduate quickly

Starting over in a new career is scary. Especially when it means you have to go back to school. Luckily at Keune Academy by 124, you can graduate in as little as 9 months, depending on which program you choose. This means that you can start beauty school, graduate, and start your career in no time!

Beauty is a growing industry

The beauty industry is and always will be relevant. In fact, it’s expected to grow 11% in the next 10 years. With new techniques and treatments coming out, you’ll always be evolving in your career.

New skills come with new responsibilities. The more you know and learn, the more services you’ll be able to offer. The opportunities are endless and you’ll have the chance to grow your career at a pace you set for yourself.

Your job won’t feel like a job

This is what happens when you love what you do. They say that if you love your job, you’ll never work another day in your life. It’s easy to love your job when your day-to-day is all about making others feel good about themselves. Chances are that if your job is rewarding, you’ll love the day-to-day.

Find a beauty school

The first step to a career change is finding a beauty school that fits your needs. Ask yourself what you want out of your career and find a school that matches that. With the right education, you’ll be able to launch your career in the way you want.
