NEW YORK (AP) — The spa and beauty industry is booming, but thousands of jobs are going unfilled.

The industry is hoping to change that with a “Get Your Dream Job” campaign designed to elevate the perception of careers in beauty and wellness.

A foundation called Beauty Changes Lives is even offering scholarships for training.

Among the behind-the-scenes jobs that are experiencing rapid growth are positions for eyelash artists who charge anywhere from to for lash treatments and extensions.
