When applying for a position as a cosmetologist or beautician it is imperative that you let the employer know exactly what you can bring to his or her salon.
The candidate in the sample beautician cover letter below does this with ease. She opens the cover letter by mentioning how she learned of the position and then dives right in to let the employer know why she is ideal for the job. First, she mentions her many years of experience as a successful cosmetologist.
Then she mentions that she has a solidly developed clientele, which will mean additional business for the salon if she is selected as the successful candidate.
She concludes her second paragraph by describing her work philosophy and what she believes has contributed to her success-the same qualities she can bring to the employer in order to stimulate their business.
In the last paragraph of the sample beautician cover letter above, the candidate mentions her awareness of the salon’s reputation.
This lets the employer know that she has done her research-a quality that could be critical in helping her to gain and interview and even get the job.
Finally, she draws the employer’s attention back to the benefits she can provide them by becoming part of their team.

Dear Ms. Matthews:
I would like to apply for the senior cosmetologist position you advertised recently in the Houston Chronicle. As requested, my resume is enclosed.
When I reviewed your advertisement, I thought you were describing the exact position I have been seeking. As my resume indicates, I have been a successful cosmetologist for several years and have developed a high-fashion oriented clientele.
I believe that my success is based on investing the time to learn what’s new in the business and on my willingness to work closely with my clients to determine the exact look they want. I think these are qualifications necessary for a senior cosmetologist.
As you know, A Cut Above Salon is considered “top of the line” in Houston. I would be honored to be part of your team and hope to have the opportunity to meet or talk with you soon.
