Beauty offers rewarding careers in a thriving industry with a positive economic forecast.
At any given time, there are approximately 1.2 million working stylists. And the total number employed by the salon industry is estimated at around 2.5 million people.
In 2011, the professional salon industry generated $72 billion in services and revenue.
In the U.S. there are 236,000 salons—the majority of them classified as small businesses with average gross revenues of $350,000.
The professional beauty industry often is described as “recession proof.” While that may not be entirely true, when you compare beauty with other industries, it’s definitely unique.
Not only does beauty offer a number of diverse career path options, but the different structures allow beauty professionals to mold careers around different lifestyles and goals.
