One skill that will further your career as a makeup artist is hairstyling. As you probably know, hair and makeup go hand in hand. Like any career choice, you should always consider your education from an investment perspective. Many beauty professionals are masters of both trades. Getting a second certification on your resume is a chance to double your earning potential and increase client prospects. Benefits of learning hairstyling alongside your makeup artistry are;
YOU WILL BECOME A MULTI-SERVICE OPTION
Your knowledge of both hair and makeup makes you a good candidate in a competitive industry. Two skills are always better than one! Learning hairstyling in addition to makeup will increase your marketability, making you more employable and giving you a leading edge over others. Both companies and clients would much rather hire an individual who is multi-talented and can provide more than one service.
YOU WILL BE MORE LIKELY TO BE CHOSEN BY CLIENTS
Many people associate beauty services with knowing how to do both makeup and hair. This is especially apparent in the Fashion/Ecom sector! Countless brands will not entertain an MUA who can’t style hair and the same goes on production. TV, Film and Fashion are fast paced and team orientated environments that require multi-skilled artists to provide BOTH services. You cannot do one without the other.
YOUR SALARY WILL BENEFIT
Having a second certification in hairstyling makes you way more credible. Since you are offering two services, your cost as a whole will reflect that. You will be able to apply for a wider variation of roles and increase your work prospects. If you are filling two job descriptions, you will also be paid a higher fee than if you were just filling just one job as a makeup artist.
YOUR INTENDED CLIENTELE WILL GROW
Offering both services stops your clients going elsewhere and means double the income for you – Especially in the world of beauty and bridal services. If a client needs both makeup and hair, and the decision is between you, who can do both and another talented makeup artist who doesn’t know hairstyling; you are much more likely to be chosen. Brides want to save time, money and stress; and they do so by looking for someone who can provide a two-in-one service for their special day.
The more you learn and the more credentials you have, the more valued you will be in the industry. Versitility is key and these are just a few good reasons to consider adding hairstyling as a certified skill.
