People with careers in personal care services assist individuals with their personal appearance, including shampooing, cutting, coloring and styling hair; giving manicures, pedicures, and scalp and facial treatments; providing makeup analysis; cleaning and styling wigs and hairpieces; and providing personal fitness training. Also, within personal care services, funeral directors and attendants make funeral arrangements for grieving families.
Employment of personal appearance workers is projected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations, while employment of funeral directors is projected to increase more slowly than the average for all occupations. Numerous employment opportunities for personal care services workers will arise from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations, retire, or leave the labor force for other reasons.
