Virginians are being laid off, but there’s one industry that seems to be recession-proof. WRIC Richmond discusses Empire Beauty School and why more people are turning to cosmetology in this broadcast from September 24, 2009.
Empire Beauty School is the nation’s largest provider of cosmetology education. Here at the Richmond, Virginia campus, students learn a variety of skills – all hair services, skin care, makeup, and nails. 250 students are currently enrolled, a huge jump from previous years.
Why cosmetology? The trade offers creativity, flexibility, and a chance to help people feel good about themselves. You can work for yourself, and the field is always changing in exciting ways.
Since 2005, the Richmond location of Empire Beauty School has been training and educating cosmetology students in preparation for rewarding and successful careers in the beauty industry.
