The demand for beauty professionals have been on the rise over the past few years, but recently there has been exponential growth within the massage therapy and esthetician careers. If you have made a New Years resolution to start a career in Massage Therapy or Aesthetics, both professions are now in demand more than ever! According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics there were 55,000 Skincare specialists in 2014 with a 12% expected growth by 2024, with specific growth expected for businesses serving men.
