Hairdressers usually attend a cosmetology colleges or beauty school where they specialize in hair styling and hair-related services

Some people are turned off by the notoriously brutal winters that plague Michigan colleges and universities. However, the cold has a bonding effect that manages to bring people together. Except for the occasional stadium football game, you will not need to go outside very much. Expect to spend many nights and weekends in sports bars cheering on your favorite team over a few pints of beer (but not before your schoolwork is all finished).

Programs will emphasize the importance of customer service, safety, and business management.

Employment of barbers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. The need for barbers will stem primarily from an increasing population, which will lead to greater demand for basic hair-care services.

Employment of hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists is projected to grow 13 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Demand for hair coloring, hair straightening, and other advanced hair treatments has risen in recent years, a trend that is expected to continue over the coming decade.

Job Growth and Related Fields

Overall job opportunities are expected to be good. Cosmetology is a growing field, and is projected to grow further in the coming years due to a high demand for personal skin and hair care. A large number of job openings will stem from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations, retire, or leave the occupation for other reasons. However, workers should expect strong competition for jobs and clients at higher paying salons, of which there are relatively few and for which applicants must compete with a large pool of experienced hairdressers and cosmetologists.
