Beauty is not just restricted to solely to cosmetology anymore as people look for a comprehensive education is image styling and consultancy, nutrition and medical cosmetology as well.

Personal grooming isn’t just about looking good on the inside anymore with courses laying emphasis on feeling good on the inside too with healthy lifestyle habits.


You should have an eye for detail and the students should enjoy interaction with others.


The field itself is new. It includes everything from beauty therapy to health care. In it, we can have career options for a makeup artist to a hair stylist.

These have been the trends in the business in recent times and could help you choose courses.

A fairly new field to enter the country is Image Consultancy and styling. Here, people are trained in soft skills and on how to make a good impression, getting an overall image boost and rise in confidence in their skills.

Dieticians and nutritionists are now considered specialists.


The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has put the total Indian beauty and cosmetic market size at $950 million (`5,700 crore) and estimates that it is growing at 15-20% per annum — twice as fast as that of the US and European markets. Its value is likely to treble to $2.68 billion (`16,500 crore appx) by 2020, experts claim.
