Exploring Career Possibilities in Makeup Artistry and Hair Styling!

As a cosmetologist, you could choose from a variety of careers once you’re done with our program at The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA), Fort Wayne. Makeup artist and hairstylist are the most common options for many cosmetologists. However, there are several more specific careers to choose from within those broader fields!

Makeup Artist

As a makeup artist, you can learn how to apply different styles of makeup using professional tools and products. You also won’t be limited to working in a salon or behind a makeup counter after completing school. There are a variety of creative routes you could take on this career path. Here are a few examples!

Fashion/Editorial Makeup Artist

Think about all the incredible makeup looks on the catwalk. These styles are typically what sets the ‘trend’ for the following season. As an editorial makeup artist, you could be the one creating trend-setting looks! Interested in photography? Editorial makeup artists also do makeup for magazine and brand campaign photoshoots. If you’ve always wanted to work in fashion, a career as an editorial makeup artist is a great way to get your foot in the door!

Theatrical/Film Makeup Artist

Working as a theatrical or film makeup artist is a great choice for those with a flair for the dramatic arts. The looks you see in movies, TV shows, and stage plays are just as important as the sets and costumes. Makeup is a part of a character, whether you’re styling someone for a modern thriller or a Victorian period piece. With a cosmetology license and the right connections, you could eventually find a job behind the scenes of a musical or on the set of a hit series!

Freelance/Personal Makeup Artist

Does the idea of working for yourself appeal to you? Many makeup artists chose to work as freelancers. This could entail visiting a client’s home or business to do makeup or providing makeup application from your own home. Freelance makeup artists can style bridal parties, help clients get ready for big events, or prepare models for photo shoots. In addition to providing services to physical clients, makeup artists can create informative content on platforms like Instagram and YouTube. Makeup hauls, product reviews, and tutorials are extremely popular across social media channels. As a trained professional, you could offer content with real authority and experience behind it.

Hair Stylist

When we think of cosmetology, a hairstylist is usually the career that comes to mind. While the role of a stylist does include cutting and styling hair in a salon environment, you’ve got options when it comes to your future. If being a hair stylist appeals to you, but you want to take a more creative approach, here are some career choices!

Editorial Hair Stylist

Love the glamorous blowouts you see in shampoo commercials and magazine advertisements? As an editorial hair stylist, you could be the one creating those fabulous locks! From social media campaigns to traditional print spreads, a professional photo shoot always needs a hairstylist. Got a good eye for fashion all things up and coming? Editorial hair stylists can flex their creative muscles by helping design and execute the trendy hairstyles seen on the runways. This is an exciting career choice for anyone interested in fashion, marketing, trends, photography, or a combination of all four!

Film/TV Hair Stylist

What would “Game of Thrones” be like without those elaborate braided hairstyles? Would “Star Wars” really be the same without Princess Leia’s famous space buns? Hair stylists for films and TV shows don’t just do the actors’ hair, they help create the characters! If you’re a film buff or a TV show enthusiast, working as a hairstylist in the entertainment industry could be your perfect cup of tea. It’s a great opportunity to be creative while working with a diverse group of people.

Bridal Hair Stylist

On someone’s wedding day, every detail needs to be just right. The hair is no exception. Brides want a style, cut, and color that’s going to work with their dress and look beautiful in photos. A bridal hairstylist is the one in charge of making her vision come true. Styling hair for weddings is a fun career choice because it allows for a lot of creativity. Every bride is different, so that means you’ll get a chance to do unique styles, colors, and cuts with every client. From long curls, elegant braids, meticulous updos, bridal styling is a great way to use your talent while making someone’s dreams come true!

Hair Colorist

When you think about hair, does color appeal most to you? Hair colorists specialize in formulating and applying different types of color to clients’ hair. This includes services like temporary, semi-permanent, and permanent hair color, highlights and lowlights, and bleaching services like lifting, toning, and color correcting. Coloring hair is a creative science that requires meticulous attention to detail. If experimenting with coloring products and techniques sounds like your thing, think about specializing in hair color once you receive your cosmetology license!

How Long is Beauty School in Indiana?

You’ve decided that beauty school might be the right path for you, congratulations! While a trade school can be vastly different from the university experience, many things are the same.

Choosing a school, sorting out financials, and working school into your unique schedule are all facets of the decision making process that play a part in shaping what the next portion of your educational life will look like.

One of the most common questions we get asked at The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Fort Wayne, however, is how long does beauty school take? Every state requirement is different depending on their licensure standards, but here is a quick breakdown of what the state of Indiana looks like. In many cases, you can graduate beauty school in less than a year, and under a year and a half on part time schedules.

Beauty School Hour Requirements in Indiana

Why Do Program Lengths Vary?

In short, we offer a variety of scheduling options to allow for our students to pursue the career training they want, even if they have time constraints from things like family responsibilities and kids, jobs, or other personal commitments that make traditional schedules difficult.

For those students who are able and willing to pursue a full time education, our cosmetology program is designed to be thorough and effective but also allow for a quick graduation. For students pursuing part time schedules, or lower hour programs like esthetics, part time schedules are still available and tend to be significantly quicker than career training and degree programs at traditional institutions.

Continuing Education

In Indiana, continuing education is not a requirement for license renewal. We think that continuing education is a great way to stay up to date on the industry and refine and improve your skillset, but since this training is not mandatory it alleviates the stress of attending workshops or trainings annually.

How Often do Classes Start?

Every institution and program is a little bit different. With that in mind, cosmetology, one of the most commonly popular programs at TSPA Fort Wayne, usually has start dates monthly. That means that by this time next year, you could be well on your way to a career in the industry.

Smaller or lower hour programs may start more infrequently, so it’s best to contact our admissions staff for information on programs like esthetics or instructor training.
