Hairstylists, also known as hairdressers, provide a direct customer service to customers who want to change their personal appearance. Training and expertise is necessary to work in this profession because they have to create new hairstyles and at the same time provide professional advice to their clients. According to BLS data, the average hourly wage of a hairstylist ranged from $6.68 to $18.7 in 2006.

Since exclusive beauty salons hire beauty school graduates and long experienced hairstylists, more and more people sign up for cosmetology or other related beauty programs.
