What would be beneficial to pursue a career in cosmetology?
I am I sophomore at Boston Collegiate Charter School and I am interested in becoming a cosmetologist. I like to work with makeup and hair and want to know what it takes to become one. Thank you for your answers. #cosmetology #makeup
I suggest reaching out to a school or program and asking for information on what their specific programs offer and how you can apply.
Working at a beauty store like Ulta, Sephora or MAC can help educate you on the building career in makeup. A friend of mine worked for MAC and received wonderful training and pay, as well as incredible makeup skills. Having a passion for makeup is the very first step & it sounds like you’ve got it!
I would recommend trying to work for one of these companies, I believe MAC educates and compensates their employees extremely well!
Reaching out to a school or program you would like to attend to study makeup can help you better plan out your education plan! Some programs can be completed in as little as 8months to 2years, while some can take 4 years. Reach out to the programs and or jobs you are interested in pursuing to inquire further and visit their websites and reviews to find the best fit for you.
I hope that was helpful!
Hello Joanna. A trade is a wonderful gift you'll use for the rest of your life!
If it is something intuitive , you have this natural ability and love for the industry--then yes!
I started out as a shampoo girl in high school to find out if I would really like it --I did.
I would strongly suggest you explore this craft before spending the money or taking out loans --as you should with any educational debt.
I wish you success , whatever decision you make on your career and journey in life.
