Sorry. There are not enough of us. Why? I don't know. It is a fun profession where you are your own boss.

Dee,

Do you think a man could make a living as an electrologist? I would assume that most customers are female and would prefer a female technician, which would make it more difficult for a man to find clients. What are your thoughts?

There are many men who are employed as an electrologist! Of course, this is a very viable profession for a man. Ask Mike Bono, James Walker, Fino Gior and his son, Skip Mahler, Lorenzo Kuntz and who did I leave out? They are all excellent male electrologists. I see a couple of men at my continuing education events.

I think men are very valuable to the electrolysis profession. If Monkey's were capable of doing electrolysis, I'd be praising monkey's too. Not trying to equate men with monkey's, so don't take offense anyone.

Most all of the pioneering in our industry has been done by men and there are more male electrologists than one would think.

I was assuming it would be more difficult for a male electrologist to find clients because I also assume that most clients would be female and females would prefer a female tech.

Only basing this on my experience with laser hair removal. I've been to several different places and never seen a male tech.

They are rare. The practice of electrology is a female dominated profession but they do exist just like male nurses exist in another female dominated profession.

Manitoba is the only province in canada with an form of electrology licensing, and it's in the form of an apprenticeship program/certification AND a you need a permission to practise certificate. The information on it is here:
http://www.gov.mb.ca/wd/apprenticeship/discover/mbtrades/electrologist.html
The rest of the country electrology is wholly unlicensed and uncontrolled activity.

Perhaps this is why Manitoba is about the only province I dont have a professional contact or reference for.

Seana, do you wish the whole country was licensed?
