Picture your dream career.

Do you see curls or cubicles?

Makeup or meetings?

If you’re the type of person who always has to be moving and creating and can’t stand the thought of a downtown commute, a poorly lit office or a dull, quiet work environment, you’ve probably given some thought to the idea of cosmetology school.

But no matter which field you hope to go into, you probably realize that getting an education in something like aesthetics, cosmetology, massage therapy or hair design is not an inexpensive endeavor.

Still, the benefits of having a more flexible schedule and the ability to let your creative side show are undeniably sweet perks.

So if you’re looking for a little extra money to help you kickstart your education, you’re going to want to read on.

(And if you’re looking for a scholarship to help pay for school, but cosmetology isn’t your field of interest, be sure to like our college page on Facebook. We post awesome new scholarship opportunities there whenever we find them.)
