Hi Elideth,

O*Net has some really great information about what it takes to be a cosmetologist--https://www.onetonline.org/link/summary/39-5012.00. This resource gives information not only about the entry requirements, but also what skills you'll need to work on and what knowledge you need to have. There are a lot of different training programs out there so you can look around and find ones that work best for you, based on length of time, cost, and atmosphere. Good luck!
