Graduate Opportunities

Overall employment of barbers, hair stylists, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 11 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.

About 93,800 openings for barbers, hair stylists, and cosmetologists are projected each year, on average, over the decade.

Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

Financial Options

Financing options are available to help students receive a quality yet affordable education. Schedule a school tour and talk with an admissions representative about how you can lower your monthly payments through our financing partners.
