Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The update for this career (PTO+CC+...) can be found here: http://bit.ly/S2IUpdateACCosmetology

Fatal_syn requested the career Cosmetology.
As I have made this career the way Fatal_syn requested, there are no chancecards.



Update
2016-09-07
This career has been updated with PTO versions, chance cards, University link, new screenshot, added "lvl",...

Italian translation has been added. Thanks to ValerieAnderson
2011-02-24
I added the same career and just changed the outfits to everyday by request. Both careers have the same GUID so you can't have both at the same time in game.
2011-01-02
Dutch translation is added to the career. I translated the English text myself. When your game is installed in Dutch, you'll see the descriptions in Dutch. If it's installed in any other language, you'll see the descriptions in English.
2010-09-21
German translation is added to career thanks to newsjunkie. When your game is installed in German, you'll see the descriptions in German. If it's installed in any other language, you'll see the descriptions in English.

Credits go to:
SimPe, Photoshop, Fatal_syn

Have fun!

Age: Adult
Career Type: Realistic
Chance cards: All

blazezd You should post in the Create forums. Folks will be glad to help you there. The comments section in an upload thread is for thanks posts and for feedback about the upload, not for create questions.

Do you think the wage is to high? I had to lower it already before it was approved.

Thanks for uploading. Sorry if I requested wages that were too high, I looked over many careers you had already made and used their wages for an idea. >__<

But thank you very much for creating this career. n.n

Well they weren't too high for me. But MTS moderators think about the subject. It's not really realistic for a hairdresser to earn so much money. When for example it's realistic to earn much money in a Mafia career.

OMG..... That is toooo funny. A floor sweeper? I'm sorry, but I am a licensed cosmetologist and If after spending thousands of dollars and numerous "hands on training" in hair school to begin my career as their "floor sweeper," I'd either quit or be on their hourly wage making multi-colored wigs by telling jokes all day. However, for the Sims, this is fine. Oh and by the way...noone can say anything about your wage scale as it all depends on where the salon is and how great their clientell is. You may have your own numerous clients and if you booth rent, that's a must. If you work in California at a shop where cuts are between $90-100 and colors are $200-300 then you rake in. Especially if you do movie and rock stars. You also have sooo many options as how you want to suceed. You could go back to school and become a hair instructor, cut and do make-up on dead people, freelance, go into your own business, or work on a cruise liner. The sky is the limit. Thanks for creating one for the Sims.

That has nothing to do with making careers anymore. That's really modding. It's possible to mod Maxis Lifetime wants, but I don't think it's possible to really make a new one. Otherwise it would have been made by good modders by now.
