I'm not sure exactly what "after 12th" means in your part of the world, but if your "12th" is comparable to 12th grade in the US or Upper 6th here in the UK, your next step would typically be bachelor's-level undergraduate study at university or college. You'll need to research universities you could attend and find out what courses they offer and what their admission processes are.

When looking at courses, cosmology can come under a number of different titles. "Cosmology", "Astrophysics" and "Astronomy" are often used interchangeably, and although they technically refer to slightly different subfields, what you'll study is largely the same. You'll also find much of the basic core physics is shared with pure physics courses - it's also worth considering doing a normal physics course with options to specialise into astrophysics and cosmology later on.

Personally, I took a "Physics with Astrophysics" course, and that gave me flexibility that when I found the physics of stellar hydro/thermodynamics becoming too abstract and difficult for myself, I could easily re-specialise into a different area of physics (I've ended up in nuclear and radiation physics now).

If you want to stay in Astrophysics/Cosmology long term, the normal route overall is to stay in academia as a research scientist the whole time. You'll do some kind of physics/astronomy/cosmology course at undergraduate level, then continue to a PhD (possibly via a Master's course depending on admissions processes). After your PhD research, you'll stay on at University in a postdoctoral research positions, with many people eventually hoping to take up lecturing and professorial positions while continuing research.

Start by researching the industry. Familiarize yourself with all aspects of hair textures, skin care and health care. If you know someone who works in a salon, one great benefit would be to shadow them and learn hands on. Also enroll in a reputable college to obtain your certification.

I hope this helps! Good Luck
Thank you comment icon hello ! I told about astronomy cosmologist is a branch in astronomy .it's not any makeup or salon SRIVEDA

Hi Sirveda - Great Question! In the United States you can find cosmetology schools near most major cities that generally have low tuition costs and give you an opportunity to learn about hair, nails, and skin. You could also look into local salons and inquire about doing an apprenticeship. If Cosmetology is your passion YouTube is a great resource for tons of video and tutorials to help you get familiar with the processes you will need to be familiar with.

Best of luck in your adventures into Cosmetology!
