We are often asked about the opportunities of a Hair stylist, once they graduate from Play Academy, as a dual-certified Stylist, armed with knowledge, skill and style to take on the world.
According to the last reported facts & figures of the Indian cosmetic industry status, “India’s retail beauty and cosmetics industry, currently estimated at $950 million, is likely to almost treble to $2.68 billion by 2020.” And it just doesn’t stop there. “India’s cosmetics market is reportedly growing at 15-20 per cent annually, twice as fast as that of the US and European markets,” according to Massooma, Editor at New Age Salon & Spa magazine, as reported in the TOI report in December 2013.
In terms of growth, here is another perspective – “The number of salons have also gone up. Its growth rate is 35 percent. Cosmetic treatments are also growing at the rate of 5 per cent. The hair and beauty industry is seeing a per capita annual spend of $1.2 which is expected to grow to $ 6.2 by 2015. The spa and body treatment segment is estimated to grow approximately $772 million over the next five to eight years.”
So, if that does not spell like opportunity for those with the right kind of skill sets, talent and certification in Beauty & Hair Care, nothing will.
Given the above figures and trend, it is not surprising to see a steady increase in the number of people wanting build their career and business in this booming Beauty and Wellness industry. People who want to find a well paid job or start their own businesses are constantly looking out for good beautician courses. This is where Play Academy makes its contribution valuable.
