Hi, I'm in school right now at The Aveda Institute in Milwaukee and will be graduating in Oct. 2007 to be a Hair Stylist. My finance and I want to sell our home and move right away. We are looking in either California, Florida or Texas. Any suggestions?? I would love to move to Cali but I'm not sure where abouts and any jobs that might be available out there in salons? I know the cost of living out there is much higher, but isn't the pay also? Does anyone know of a website that helps you with relocating to another state (like jobs, housing, neighborhoods, ECT.)??

www.craigslist.org is a good place for looking at job postings and housing info for CA as well as cities in other states. You might look at the salaries offered in different cities and compare.

Sounds like you want nice winters. California is just so big. Small towns. Big cities. Rich. Poor. Low cost areas. High cost areas. Deep woods. Mountains. Ocean. Beach. Desert.

You need to come out and visit a few areas. Narrow down your search.

People move here all the time. Get in their cars and just head west. Somehow most of them make it.

Default Have to Agree

I have to agree. California is too big a state with too many options to sum it up in a few words. We have it all, costal ranges, mountains, valleys, and every temp. you could imagine.

You did not say what your fiance did for work, but your field is pretty varied depending on the city where you settle. Any city with a population over 200,000 will have lots of hairstylist options. However, most of the entry jobs are at the Hair express type places and probably only pay entry level wages. I do know from my hairstylest that developing a client base is the biggest challenge. People just don't share their clients here, they develop their own and fight to keep them. I've lived in So. Cal and the Central Valley and it's pretty much the same in both places.

You might consider checking out the classified ads in some of the cities you are considering. You can find most CA newspapers on the net and most of them have on-line editions.

Good luck,
