Job Demand

Today, the growing beauty and health care industry offers a dramatically unique "zero unemployment" factor—needing many more new salon professionals than we can supply. There has been notable national growth in the salon industry since 1999 as well as here in Maryland. The total number of salon professionals increased nationally by 24 percent, while the total number of salons also increased 5.6 percent since 1999. The number of salon professionals leaving their positions stabilized and this shrinkage has decreased by 12 percent since 1999. New hires are now up by 37 percent.

The beauty industry remains a job-seekers market! For more information, please visit The National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences website.
