Illinois Hairdressers and Cosmetologists: 22.2% Growth on the Way

15. August 2013 08:31

A report from the Illinois Department of Employment Security shows that personal services jobs (including hairdressers and cosmetologists) should grow by 22.2% by 2020. That growth is significantly greater than what's forecast for pharmacists (6.4 percent), accountants (11.4 percent) and computer programmers (17.2 percent). One reason behind the strong outlook for hairstylists and cosmetology professionals? Personal services jobs can't be outsourced or automated, making them more or less recession-proof.
