I Have Enrolled In Cosmetology School What Do I Need To Do To Prepare?

Five things that you can do to get the best education from your experience

Congratulations on enrolling in cosmetology school! The first step is always the most difficult because it represents the moment when you’ve committed to a course of action. But it’s not all downhill from here. To meet your destination, you need wit and determination. You need to prepare yourself ahead of time to maximize your chances for success.  

Here are a few things you can do to prepare for your time in cosmetology school: 

Set Goals for Yourself

Before you even start your program, take some time to think about what you want to get out of your education. Do you want to specialize in a particular area, such as hairdressing or esthetics? Do you want to work in a high-end salon or open your own business? Having clear goals will help you stay motivated and focused as you progress through your program. 

Research the School and Its Programs

Take some time to learn about the school you’ll be attending and its programs in hairdressing, barbering, cosmetology, makeup, and esthetics. Find out about the faculty and their experience in the industry, as well as the school’s facilities and resources. 

Invest in the Right Tools and Equipment

Cosmetology school can be expensive but investing in the right tools and equipment can save you money in the long run. Find out what you’ll need for your program and start gathering the items you’ll need, such as shears, combs, brushes, and styling products.

Practice Your Skills

While you’ll get plenty of hands-on training in cosmetology school, it can’t hurt to start practicing your skills now. If you’re enrolled in a hairdressing program, for example, try out different styling techniques on friends and family members. This will help you build your confidence and get a feel for what it’s like to work with real clients. 

Get Involved in Your School and the Beauty Industry.

Look for opportunities to get involved with your school and the beauty industry outside of the classroom. Attend industry events, and join professional associations, such as the Professional Esthetician Members Association or the Ontario Professional Hairstylist Association. Also, seek out internships or apprenticeships to get real-world experience and make connections in the industry. For instance, graduates from Bruno’s are eligible for an apprenticeship program. This will give you more mentorship, handson experience, and a regular paycheck. 

By following these tips and staying focused and motivated, you’ll be well on your way to getting the best education possible from your cosmetology school experience. You will also find yourself a part of a vibrant community of other beauty professionals.
