With more than 400,000 salons in the U.S., opportunities for salon and spa managers abound. From chain and franchise salons to boutiques and day spas, there has never been a better time to enter the field. If you're interested in a salon management position as a cosmetologist, look for a school that offers:

- Relevant management courses
There are cosmetology schools that offer business and marketing programs to train students for a well-rounded background, preparing them for a career as a manager.

“My uncle was very client driven. And that taught me such humility with clients and how to give really good customer service. That is the key to what we do in the salon. The service that they get and the personality that you have, that’s what makes clients come back over and over. It’s loyalty you wouldn’t believe.”
