Mortuary Cosmetologists


The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment of cosmetologists will grow by 8 percent, faster than the average for all careers, through 2028. The employment outlook for funeral workers in general is also good, according to the DOL. A growing number of aging people are prearranging their funeral services. Also, an increase in the number of expected deaths among the aging baby boomer population will create need for the services of mortuary cosmetologists. According to the CIA World Factbook, the estimated U.S. death rate was 8.3 per 1,000 in the U.S. population for 2020, and that number is expected to increase in the coming years. Mortuary cosmetologists who market themselves well and establish a strong, professional network will have the advantage in the job market.
