Professionals in the cosmetology industry go by many different names and job titles that it can be a little bit overwhelming for some individuals. While it is not considered improper to refer the person who cuts your hair as a hair dresser instead of a hair stylist, Brooksville residents should be aware that in the cosmetology industry, every position has a professional title and a colloquial name that is used to being said around the salon by clients. Most of these positions can only be obtained by being an expert in that is specialized with a cosmetology license.
Usually when someone goes to have their nails worked on they are trying to see a nail tech or nail technician, but in the cosmetology industry, they are known by another name. When someone is trying to obtain a license to be a nail tech, the industry refers to these individuals as a manicurist or a pedicurist. Unlike a hair stylist, Brooksville manicurists deal primary with shaping and polishing hands and feet and of course the nails that are attached to them.
Hairdressers and Barbers
A hair stylist is another specialist in the cosmetic industry that does a lot more than simply cut hair. For a typical salon hair stylist, Brooksville residents can get more than a simple haircut.
These individuals are in charge of washing, drying, dying, and braiding the hair of their customers in order to achieve a look that is desired. Another name for someone who was a hair dresser back in the day that many older customers still call their stylists are beauticians.
Estheticians or Skin Experts
At many higher end salons hire the assistance of a skincare professional known as an esthetician. These individuals specialize in cleaning and caring for skin by being an expert in lotions, creams, and other cosmetic skin topicals. Estheticians are also known for providing consultations for their customers who have questions or concerns of different products offered by a salon such as shampoo or body oils.
