I'm interested in attending cosmetology school

Other than hairstyling and nail designs, what type of things do you learn in cosmetology school?

  • You would learn about opening a business finding the best location. Skin disorders and diseases that are contagious and not contagious. You learn facials. Once you get a master Cosmetology license you do not only have to do hair. It's show you other jobs you can get being licensed like working for the cosmetology board, owning a shop etc.

  • My cousin was just checking a school out and there was skin. I can't remember the word for it, but that's what they learned about. lol

  • esthetics can be apart of it (skin care), you learn waxing, make-up, facials, some massage, updos, blow-outs, there's sooo much more. honestly you don't really know that much about hair until you get in there and really learn it. color is fun and can be very hard to understand although "it's just hair" lol. there should also be a course or help in interview skills and portfolio making. ask about attendance policies and their turn-over for students and teachers.
