  • no, they are not all the same. just like any educational organization, a good outcome stems from the educator's desire to teach, and the student's desire to learn. that said, certainly, there are various aspects of cosmetology that may be touched on more or less, depending on the teachers (their own education, instructor-skills AND from actually working behind-the-chair.) and the demographics. for instance, if you live in a predominantly AA area, you will more likely learned/practice more AA-hair, as opposed to caucasion hair. the main objective of the beauty school is to teach the basics and prepare you for your state board test, which can also vary, according to various states guidelines.
    you, hopefullly, learned tons of theory in school...i don't care how much you 'practised', i promise you, your REAL education will start on your first job in a REAL salon. good luck, and welcome to the wonderful world of HAIR!!
