Delaware Beauty and Cosmetology Schools

Cosmetology schools in Delaware are second to none when it comes to preparing students to take the state’s licensing exam. These schools can be found from Wilmington in the northern tip of the state down to Selbyville on the southern state line with Maryland—and everywhere in between.

With nearly 1,400 cosmetologists, hairdressers, and hairstylists practicing in Delaware (according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics—the BLS), there continues to be room for growth in this industry. State-approved beauty schools help prepare students to take the Delaware cosmetology licensing exam by teaching skills in manicuring, skin care, hair styling, pedicure, scalp treatment, bacteriology, and other critical areas—as well as business skills such as customer service, people skills, and personal development. Cosmetology schools in Delaware are required to provide 1,500 hours of coursework for cosmetologists, and the state offers reciprocity to all states and the District of Columbia.

The BLS reports that the average hourly wage for cosmetologists, hairdressers, and hairstylists in Delaware is $13.33, while the state’s minimum wage is $7.25. Professionals in these occupations earn, on average, $27,720 per year in Delaware. In fact, Delaware professionals who excel in their chosen personal care field can earn more than $44,370.

The BLS also projects that the need for personal care professionals will continue to grow in the coming years. Between 2010 and 2020, it is estimated the industry will grow by 16 percent, adding more than 200,000 professionals nationwide.
