The Benefits of Cosmetology Refresher Courses

Cosmetology refresher courses enable professional beauticians to return to school to reacquaint themselves with the basics, master new skills and enhance their technique. Licensed professionals in the fields of esthetics, hair care, nail care and makeup should regularly hone their skills with these courses, because cosmetology methods and styles evolve over time. These courses are ideal for cosmetology technicians, and are particularly helpful for technicians who have to update their licenses.

Makeup Refresher Courses

Several makeup firms provide courses to teach their staff how to apply specific lines of makeup. In the event that you are employed by a firm that utilizes a particular line of makeup, you will have to attend a course like this. Mac Cosmetics provide classes for their staff, to teach them the best methods for using their color palate.

Esthetics Courses

The body’s biggest organ is the skin, and estheticians (i.e. skin specialists) have to keep up to date with new skincare advancements. Students are taught fundamental skincare methods, like skin extractions, skin cleansing and skin analysis. Estheticians who wish to remaster basic methods, who are out of practice, or who wish to master new and developing techniques can benefit from this kind of class.

Cosmetology Refresher Courses

As popular styles and fashions change, so do hair techniques. A hair stylist has to be conversant with fundamental practices, whilst keeping updated with new developing styles.

During their initial training, the majority of hairdressers are taught razor techniques, so the razor segment of the class will be a good memory jogger. Students will master new techniques with razors, whilst consolidating the techniques they know already. Balayage is the practice of using a fine tipped brush to paint color onto the hair. During their initial training, most hairdressers are not taught balayage, so this segment of the class will add to their existing knowledge.

Nail Care Courses

Once the license of a nail technician has expired for over five years, he or she has to attend a refresher course, before reapplying for licensure. Some cosmetology schools offer sixty hour course intended to assist technicians with mastering the fundamentals once again. This course is only designed for people who have had nail licenses in the past.

The program is meant to help people who are already familiar with the basics, but who require more practical experience. The course properly prepares students for all of the nail license examination questions. Indeed, nail care refresher courses cover nail art fundamentals, along with the correct procedures for setting up a hygienic treatment venue for clients.
