What Makes a Platform Artist?
Platform artists have some of the most glamorous jobs within the cosmetology industry. They essentially form the public face of the organization they represent. Their roles are half teaching and half sales, carried out with a healthy dash of charisma and flair. As experts in the field, platform artists are responsible for showcasing their company’s products as well as instructing other cosmologists on their use.
They make appearances around the world at trade shows and expositions, where they rock the floor as the celebrity figures that draw in the crowds. In schools across the country, they host workshops and training sessions to educate rising cosmologists and stylists on the latest innovations within the field. Along with this mission, they promote the image of their company and its products.
