Where can I get a cosmetology certificate if there is one? And what age should I start my career?

I'm a freshman and want to start my career soon. I specifically do hair and makeup. I have tons of experience with makeup and have already have my platform but not so many viewers I want to share my love with makeup and help others do their makeup. My goal is to finish high school and get a certificate so I can have my own business and soon after that start my own makeup line. #cosmetology #makeup #makeupartist

Hi Kimberly!

To obtain a cosmetology license, you can go to a local trade school in highschool if the option is available. I got my license that way here in Ohio. I went to a trade school that had my core highschool classes one half of the day and my cosmetology program the other half. In Ohio, we're required 1500 hours for a basic cosmetology license. 150 of those hours is your internship. So I did my schooling my junior and senior year of highschool and my internship the summer in between. I was able to get my license two weeks before I officially graduated. There's an advanced cosmetology license as well, which I believe you would need to own your own business (or at least have a better understanding of how to go about it). You can start your career in highschool if it's available and finish your hours for the advanced license after graduation. I hope this helps!

With that determination, you're set to do great things! I'm sure of it.

Good luck,
Chloe
