What to Expect in Cosmetology School

Beauty school can be a new and exciting opportunity to learn and grow, but what is it really like to be a beauty school student? Some people wonder if it’s similar to being in high school, or if it’s a different experience entirely. Let’s look at a day in the life of a cosmetology student and find out!

Classroom Learning

The part of cosmetology school that people might think is similar to high school is the learning that takes place in the classroom. Beauty school students have textbooks and classes just like they had in high school. The major difference is that cosmetology programs involve a great deal of practical learning. You might spend time in the classroom learning about different types of hair styles and treatments, and then you often have the opportunity to practice what you’re learning in class under the supervision of licensed professionals. This means that cosmetology can play to the strengths of a variety of different learning styles.

Practical Application

When students first start out at a beauty school, they typically spend their time in the classroom. Laying a foundation is important to help prepare the student to practice in the student salon training area. As students move forward with their education, they often spend less and less time in the classroom to spend more time in the student salon training area where they gain more required hours for graduation. This can help them feel completely confident and ready to provide services after graduating!

Not Just Hair-Brained Education

Cosmetology is at the core of what students are given the opportunity to learn in beauty school, but it doesn’t end there! Courses in business management or how to grow your guest count are integral to helping cosmetology students be successful after graduation. Our students come to beauty school with different dreams and goals in mind, so it’s important to use to teach things that can help graduates be successful. It’s not just about learning to cut hair, but how to be a savvy business person!

Building a Network

It’s often said that it’s not what you know, but who you know that matters most! In the world of beauty this can also be true. Networking while in beauty school can help open avenues you might not otherwise have had! It could be that the school or the instructors have resources to help find employment after graduation, or it could be that your classmate has a dream to open their salon and they want your help to do it. Having connections from beauty school can help you be successful after you graduate through the rest of your life!

Born for This: 5 Reasons to Follow Your Cosmetology Dreams!

Follow your dreams. It’s a phrase that’s been said many times. Yet there are still people who don’t follow their dreams or pursue their passions. Schedules get filled, appointments are made, and life can get in the way. But it’s not too late to pursue an education in cosmetology!

Below are five reasons why we at The Professional Salon Academy(TSPA), Fort Wayne believes you were born to follow your cosmetology dreams!

  1. Cosmetology is Your Passion

    You pride yourself on how awesome your hair and makeup look. You know what products are best for different hair types and how to use them. Your makeup blending skills are awesome and you always bring your A-game when it comes to contouring. But your passion goes beyond doing your own makeup and hair, you get excited when you are able to help others with their hair and makeup.

  2. Your Childhood was Full of Funny Hair Stories

    You tried to cut your own hair or your friends’ hair growing up. Don’t worry, it happened to all of us. However, we all learn from past mistakes and sometimes they make funny stories down the road. Fortunately hair grows back and you learned the importance of having a great hair stylist.

  3. Your Friends Have You on Speed Dial

    Whether it was a playdate with your childhood friends or spending hours before a dance doing each others’ hair, doing hair has always been a part of your life. You remember the first time you successfully weaved a french braid. You also remember the exact shade of red you used to dye your sister’s hair before senior year. Hair is an important part of your life and you take pride in your skills and are always craving to learn more on how you can perfect your skills.

  4. Cosmetology Makes You Happy

    Trying out a new shampoo gives you an adrenaline rush. Cracking open a new eyeshadow palette gives you goosebumps. The feel of a new makeup brush is super satisfying. It really is the little things that you appreciate about makeup that others don’t always notice. Anyone in the cosmetology field can relate and they are willing to share your excitement about new products or giving your client an awesome haircut.

  5. Make Yourself Proud

    There’s nothing better than knowing you’ve accomplished something great! Making your dreams a reality is exciting and worthwhile. You may feel a sense of deep pride that can only come from hard work and dedication. It’s not every day that people decide to follow their dreams and when you decide to you deserve to celebrate!
