How Finding Inspiration and Continuing Education Helps Beauty Professionals

Why Continued Education in the Beauty Industry is Important

Going to school and studying cosmetology builds lasting memories and helps guide students into a concentrated study. Students learn to master their craft or at least understand the work ethic and skills it takes to master their trade. Many beauty professionals go on to pursue different forms of continued education. 

Charting the beauty industry’s influence is important for aspiring and professional cosmetologists alike. Learning to evolve and add the current styles to your beauty arsenal is essential if you want to feel confident in your trade, continue your education, and learn new techniques and trends. There are many conventional and unique ways to continue your education, including interning for a few years as a protégé, working as an assistant, working your way up to the desired job role, and attending beauty trade shows and workshops to stay abreast of the latest trends and techniques. Participating in these events will help spark your imagination and inspire you.

Working as an Assistant or Intern

Working as an assistant or working your way up in the industry can give you an edge because you understand how each role works individually and how they effectively work collectively.

It’s not always guaranteed, but interns and assistants often find that job opportunities come a bit easier when they’re already proving themselves in the industry they aspire to work in. If an intern does an exceptional job, then that intern might be first in line to get the position when a position opens. Opportunities can emerge that will transform your career. As a bonus, the intern learns valuable skills and continues their education. 

Attending Trade Shows and Workshops

Putting in the hours and working smart can help advance your career. Proactively carving out time to attend workshops and beauty trade shows will help to accelerate product knowledge and skills. The beauty of attending trade shows is sampling a line of new, innovative products, networking and building connections within the industry, and potentially building creative teams if you ever consider striking out on your own and opening a salon or beauty-related company. 

One of Evergreen Beauty College’s former students who studied as an esthetician worked independently to continue her education had this to say:

“I am very motivated in whatever I choose to study. I spend a lot of my free time researching products and ingredients that benefit my clients because I genuinely care about making them feel beautiful and confident in their skin.” –Vererna Schouten

Many Evergreen Beauty College Alumni were able to develop a strong brand identity and clear point of view by continuing their education throughout the years. 

Some students come to Evergreen Beauty College expecting to focus on hair design and transition their studies to make-up artistry. Later in their career, they may find they want to explore a new beauty-related field. This is why continued education post-graduation is essential.
