What is the BEST beauty career?

How do I decide?

Consider this before investing in a beauty industry career. Despite what service attracts you the most, your success in the skills you choose will be self-directed. To clarify, there is more than mastering a skill to reap the benefits of a beauty career.

3 reasons why you want a beauty career.

The beauty about a beauty careers is that they are all boundary-less.

What is a boundaryless career❓

Allan Bird, Professor of Global Business, Northeastern University, defines it as a career path in which individuals must engineer their work lives on their own.

According to Bird, there are 3 principles to the Boundaryless Career:

1. The Boundaryless Career is self-directed.

The beauty industry is not for everyone. It takes more than providing a good service to succeed in this industry. You must also have a sense of self-direction, self-motivation, and of course, an entrepreneurial spirit! For example, creating professional accounts on social media platforms will help you reach new clients.

2. The Boundaryless Career is ill-structured.

Progress, success, and advancement comes from learning and mastering technical skills, meeting new people, and collaborating with new groups. Beauty careers can be very exciting if you do it right!

Above all, having great people skills is important. You don’t have to possess an outgoing personality, but because you direct your own career, you must be personable with the people you meet throughout your career.

Moreover, there is a very attractive flexibility to the beauty industry. Some employers offer 9-5 hours, however, many employers offer flexibility on work schedules due to evening and weekend work. This outside-the-box scheduling allows you more control of time.

3. The Boundaryless Career has psychological benefits and costs.

Some psychological benefits are creativity and self-expression. Beauty careers allow you to express yourself in ways you wouldn’t dream of in conventional careers! Exploring new techniques to bring your ideas to life in your services are ways to attain new levels of success in the beauty industry.

Self expression is an excellent way to promote yourself as a service provider. After all, your presentation speaks for your work.

Other psychological benefits

In addition, you can gain even greater control by working on commission. In this arrangement, you are better able to influence your income and schedule- a psychological benefit that comes from the independence and freedom a career in the beauty industry provides.


As you can see, Alberta’s beauty industry offers exciting beauty careers for those who possess the right qualities!

How can I change to a career in beauty?

Changing Careers After 30

Changing careers is more common than you may think. Why do we hear about people having more than one career these days? I have a theory based on observations, my knowledge of human behaviour, and my understanding of social psychology. I believe we go through multiple career changes these days due to an abundance of career options.

Where do I start?

There are several ways to enter the industry, but first we recommend becoming fully informed before making life-changing decisions. This is why beauty career exploring should be done alongside ESG.

We are able to ask the right questions to help you map out your future based on your past and present life experience. For example, when we meet with clients considering a career in the beauty industry, we talk more than just work. We believe choosing a career is dependent among many factors, for example, interests, abilities, work values, personal values, and future life plans.

Career Satisfaction

If your work values are not parallel to your personal values, it is only a matter of time before you decide no amount of money is worth your time there. Because of this, we like to ask questions with different options for you to choose from. For example, we may ask you what is most important to you in a career, and give you the following options to choose from: high achievement, independence, creativity, or good salary.


At ESG, we specialize in beauty industry careers. If you are thinking about changing careers. furthering your education, or transitioning back to employment, we can provide industry information and career and employment consulting to help you make the right decision.
