Have you been wondering what the best cities to be a beautician in are? There are jobs for barbers, cosmetologists, estheticians, hairdressers, hairstylists, nail technicians and makeup artists all over the country, but of course, some cities are better than others. There are some cities where people are more likely to want these types of services, some cities where people are willing to pay more for these services and some cities that have a shortage of people providing these services. Some cities have more jobs at big, established salons, while other cities with growing populations are better for entrepreneurial opportunities.
Anyone who works with clientsè¢'' personal appearance needs is considered a beautician, although there are a wide variety of specialties in this field. As a beautician, you will probably work in a salon, and like most practitioners in your field, you will probably practice one specialty. However, you may also become licensed to practice in several specialties, such as hair, nails and makeup. It is important to be where your services are needed, regardless of what your specialty is. If youè¢''re thinking about moving to a different city to boost your beautician career, one of these cities might be ideal for you:
- Arlington, Texas
- Asbury Park, New Jersey
- Boise, Idaho
- Long Island, New York
- Phoenix, Arizona
- Wichita, Kansas
This may seem like a strange list of the best cities to be a beautician, as it is missing the major cities for fashion and commerce, such as New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and other highly populated metropolitan areas. However, beauticians are actually finding the most work in the Midwest at the moment, in cities such as Arlington and Wichita that are expanding.
Western cities like Phoenix and Boise are also expanding, and there are plenty of opportunities to create your own niche in these markets, unlike the very competitive markets in California. Cities to the east, such as Asbury Park and Long Island, are close to New York City, but since so many beauticians are trying to make it in the Big Apple, a hole has been left in neighboring cities that needs to be filled.
There are plenty of opportunities to find your customer base and build a career as a beautician throughout the United States, and you donè¢''t necessarily need to leave home to do so. However, if you are already thinking of relocating, these cities would be ideal.
