    Stylist Profession

    The Sims 3 Makeover Station The Stylist Profession is a great career choice for the Sims that love fashion, hairstyles, makeup and accessorizing! This is a new profession that was introduced with The Sims 3 Ambitions expansion pack. Sims in this career often have the opportunity to give Sims in their town new hairstyles and change their hair color, so if you like changing hair in The Sims 3, this is the job for you!

    To get started in this path, apply for the Stylist profession by heading to the Salon (only available with the Ambitions expansion). Stylists start out as a Fashion Fledgling and can make their way to the top as a Fashion Phenomenon. Sims in this career earn a weekly stipend and also earn money for each job they complete.
