What Do Cosmetologists Do?

Good cosmetologists are in high demand, and they do much more than cut hair! Cosmetologists are business owners. They help clients care for their hair, skin, and nails. They work in beauty salons, day spas, cruise ships, luxury spas, and resorts. Many start their own businesses.
