Beauty realm is no longer what it used to be. The days of just walking into a barber shop and getting a trim and a shave are long gone. Today, being a hairstylist or medical esthetician is a demanding and challenging career that takes design, art and creativity to a whole new level. The scope for employment in beauty industry is enormous.
