Hair and beauty
It may not immediately spring to mind but some of the top hair stylists and beauticians are actually incredibly creative, producing living works of art on happy clients (at least, that’s the hope!).

Writing and editing magazines, websites, newspapers and books requires a huge amount of creativity and, although this is a competitive industry, there are lots of opportunities.
Another incredibly tough to break into industry with a huge number of careers to choose from. Runners, script writers, cameramen… It’s more than just actors and actresses learning their lines.
