Compensation Expected: *Starting at $21,900 to $23,300

Cosmetology graduates earn from $21,900 to $23,300 in salary and gratuities in an entry-level position depending on the work schedule and the area population. A commission scale is commonly used to pay cosmetologists resulting in much higher pay after an introductory period of several months. Retail commission is also common. Many salons now offer benefits, resulting in higher earnings. 

Physical Demands of Cosmetology:

There are physical demands placed on the body in any career. In cosmetology, care must be taken to protect your back, legs, and feet. One way to do this is strength training to enhance your back, abdomen, and leg muscles. Regular exercise will help to promote all over body conditioning, and will improve circulation in your legs and feet. We recommend consulting your doctor before beginning any exercise program.

Because this job requires that you stand for long periods of time, it is suggested that you wear proper fitting, supportive shoes, and support hose. These are not a requirement but will help to increase your chances of longevity in the profession.

Safety Requirements of Cosmetology:

Safety suggestions with this profession would include wearing shoes that would not be slippery when walking on a damp floor. Because you will always be working with water, there is a risk of water spills. Damp hair lying on the floor can also pose a chance of slipping. All hair needs to be swept up following each haircut to minimize accidents. All water spilled should also be wiped up as quickly as possible. It is the responsibility of each stylist to promote a safe work environment.

Gloves should be worn during chemical services to reduce any allergic reaction that an individual may have to certain chemicals.

Any product that would accidentally get in the eyes should be flushed thoroughly with water. Seek medical attention if irritation continues.

Licensing Requirements for Cosmetology in Missouri:

Cosmetology graduates completing 1500 hours and all course work may take the state board exam to receive a cosmetology license in Missouri. The exam covers cosmetology theory and Missouri law and rules related to cosmetology.
