Things You Will Learn in Cosmetology School

If you’re considering a career in cosmetology, you need the best schooling to get the best jobs and high-level clients. Everyone has to start at the bottom and learn basic skills. Depending on the type of cosmetology, your training could last anywhere from one to eight years. It all depends on how specialize you become in the field. Here are the things you will learn in a cosmetology classroom:

  1. Communication: Communication is important because you want happy clients who walk away from your chair feeling listened to, appreciated, and, most importantly, love their hairstyle.

  2. Hairstyles: From the “Farrah” to the “Rachel” and everything in between, you need to have a grasp on current and past hairstyle trends to better serve your clients.

  3. Hair health: You’re not just cutting hair. You’re helping your clients achieve beautiful healthy hair. It’s important to know how hair grows, the types of hair, and how certain medications react with processing chemicals.

  4. Business: Many students have aspirations of owning their own salon. For this reason, many cosmetology schools teach a business course to help students.

  5. Other specialties: Cosmetology schools also teach basic and advanced courses regarding skin care, nail technology, and electrology.
