Now,there are some zillion job possibilities out there in the big wide world. The magic is in finding what fits you like a glove. Some careers will give you more satisfaction than others, it just depends on how well matched you are with the job you do. Beauty schools like Marinello, Toni & Guy and Empire not only train you to excel at your art, but they also help you choose a career path based on your aptitude and interests. Jobs that actively use already inherent personality traits within you tend to be more enjoyable as you tend to use these traits more naturally and frequently. For example, it would be incredibly hard for an introvert to do a job that was incessantly socially demanding same as it would be pretty difficult for an extrovert to do a job where they never really interacted with anyone.
So what personality traits would you need for a successful beauty career?

Don’t you just love massages? They are the perfect thing after a stressful week at work.
A massage is a physical and emotional experience. A good massage therapist needs to be naturally empathetic towards clients, caring about their needs and listening to what is said. They need to be intuitive enough to understand the body language of a client, gauging when they are pressing too hard or whether they need to be putting more pressure. Good communication skills are always useful to help you understand what your client needs and wants-areas to focus on or avoid, muscle pulls or injuries etc.
