Cosmetology is a field that focuses on hairstyling and makeup, as well as skincare and beauty products. Cosmetology can also offer other expertise such as dying hair, extensions, and perms.
According to cosmetologist, Taylor Jimenez, styling people is a great, fun career to do.
Jimenez graduated in 2014 and throughout her whole high school career, she knew that cosmetology was the type of career she wanted to do her whole life.
“My mom has been in the salon for several years of my life and would always bring me to work with her when I was little, I learned a lot when I was young and just loved the idea of working as a stylist,” said Jimenez.
Many cosmetologist all do their own unique things in the saloon and it takes a lot of practice and skill to learn these things.
“One thing that I love doing in the hair salon is eyelash extensions. I get many clients for this part of my job and love the process of it,” said Jimenez.
Growing up in the salon came with a lot of bonding moments for Taylor with her mother, she has been with her since she was little and now she is working with her today at the Allure salon.
“I enjoy working with my mom very much, we have some rocky moments but majority of the time we have a lot of fun times together and make lot’s of memories together,” said, Jimenez.
Statistics have shown that many people choose to take the route of cosmetology as their career and end up enjoying their choice. Taylor enjoys her job and everything she does.
“I plan on doing this for the rest of my life and I could not imagine doing anything else. I am entertained everyday and I love what I do,” said Jimenez.
Not only is cosmetology a good career to work in, but cosmetologists can be well compensated. Depending on experience, pay can range from $8-23 hour or $15,000-$42,000 annually according jobmonkey.com.
