How long do you have to go to school to become a beautician?
And what are the ranges of the salary per year?
It depends on the state where you live in. Some states regulate beauticians while others do not. Your best bet is to check online at the nearest community college in your area that offers beautician classes. They’ll be able to inform you of your States requirements to become a beautician.
As for the salary, it depends. At first it will take you a while to build up your clientele. One you have regular customers, the sky is really the limit. Especially if you keep up with the latest hairdo trends and celebrity fashion hairstyle trends. Some top beauticians pull in over $50,000 per year. I’d say the average beautician makes between $20,000 and $30,000 per year.
You should also stop by and get your hair done by a local beautician and start up a chat with your hairdresser. They can be a goldmine of helpful info and a peek inside the hairstyle industry.
