5 Things No One Tells You About Beauty College

Many students think they know all about beauty college, even before setting foot in the classroom.

While it’s true that they might be familiar with a lot of what goes on, there are some things that they’re probably not aware of. Read on, to learn more about five sneaky issues that no one tells you about beauty school.

Beauty College isn’t As Easy As It Looks

If you enroll in a cosmetology course, thinking it will be a breeze, it’s typically not as easy as it looks. The truth is, there is much more involved than just doing hair and makeup. Curriculum includes topics such as:

  • Safety issues
  • Color mixology
  • Skincare
  • Business development

RamblingBeachCat.com explains that while you may work side-by-side with someone who is having an easier time with everything than you are, don’t envy that person. Your future is dependent on your hard work alone. Envying people won’t get you anywhere.

The Dress Code is Boring

The majority of beauty programs have a dress code. It generally includes comfortable clothing, black in color. You won’t be able to wear anything revealing like tank tops or short skirts. According to a recent Seventeen.com article, open-toed shoes are forbidden as well.

Expect To Have Homework

You’re going to have homework in beauty college. It might not be an everyday occurrence, but be prepared to make time for it. It’s important to keep up with all the new trends, in addition to your book work and hands-on training.

You’ll Get Negative Feedback

Negative feedback is an important part of learning and improving your skills. Don’t let it get the best of you. Take in stride and do all that you can to make necessary changes. You won’t regret it.

You Need to Make Your Work Stand Out

Make an effort to make your work stand out, even in the beginning. The beauty industry is very competitive. To get a crack at the most lucrative jobs, you need to get noticed. Just doing enough to pass your courses is probably not good enough.

Did Anyone tell You That You Can Start Today?

Now that you’re more knowledgeable about these five things, it will be easier to dive head on into beauty college. Every day is different and exciting. Even better, you’ll have your license and be working before you know it.
