What is Cosmetology?
Tags: Cosmetics, Cosmetology

Cosmetology is the study and application of beauty treatment. Branches of specialty include skincare, haircare, and cosmetics development. Several people think of cosmetology as a field that only has applications such as waxing, permanent hair removal, manicures or pedicures, etc, which is not entirely true.

Although there is science in everything related to skincare and Hair care, Cosmetology is way beyond hair styling and what makeup artists do.

Cosmetology is the field of understanding how cosmetic products interact with human Skin and hair and developing new methods that will help in making the human body look better and also its applicability to the skin in any way.

Cosmetologists are trained and licensed to perform cosmetic treatments on the hair, skin, and nails. 

Careers in Cosmetology
Once you have completed your Bachelor in Cosmetic Technology, you can choose where you want to go. You can work with saloons and can gain experience as a beauty consultant or you can also explore your way in Research & Development.

In my opinion, R&D is one of the most rewarding career paths in cosmetology and that can be enhanced by completing your Masters in Cosmetics technology.

After completion of your Post Graduation, you can work in any reputed organization as an R&D executive and pave your path towards becoming a Formulation Scientist.

The work of a Formulation Scientist usually includes developing new and innovative products that can benefit people around the world. This inturn also helps in getting good profits to the organization.

What is the salary after Cosmetology?
Well, it depends upon your education qualification, and experience.

If you are a fresher, you can expect anywhere between 12k to 20k per month, but after gaining some experience you can also make more than 1,00,000 INR per month. 

This all depends upon your experience and how innovative products you can develop to capture the market. Once you have established your expertise, you can even sell your formulations and can provide formulation consultations to organizations that deal in cosmetic products.
