The Green Book reports that there will be a 20% increase in the number of licensed hairstylists in the US by 2020...this means that (unless the population also grows by 20%, which is very unlikely as the birth rate is dropping in the US), there will be a LOT MORE COMPETITION.
This can mean only one thing...lower prices.
Ofcourse not that's why i don't like the part of lower prices when everything else is going up. I agree that i don't know any hairstylist that has retired.
hopefully 20% will retire by then
Your attitude compass seems to be perpetually pointed south. Though you do provide some thought provoking questions, it would be great to see some positivity coming from your direction.
As Mark Twain said: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."
Although I may consider such information, I seldom set my clock by it.
I'm really starting to think that the bubble is about to pop. Schools have been "selling the dream" and I think that potential students are starting to figure out that the jobs and money isn't exactly as schools portray. I think that big commercial schools have peaked and that education will start to move, slowly but surely back into salons under apprenticeships. Fingers crossed.
