Today’s post is a post about beginners cosmetology. I will be giving pointers, pros, and cons, etc. Cosmetology is only fun if you genuinely love beauty such a hair, makeup, and fashion.
You will know very quickly if it’s for you or not. You will know that you either aren’t interested or you’re just not very good. You will not do everything perfectly… DO NOT LET THIS GET YOU DOWN. Nobody is perfect When you see my work. I don’t show you my first try. I show off my 3rd, 4th, 5th try.
You WILL have your talents. Things that you do better than anyone else. Mine is haircuts, blowouts, and color. I do bomb ass blowout. I just have the wrist movement and flexibility you need for it. I have the shear movement/talent for haircuts. I am good with color, I have the patience and bold nature to be able to get into it without nervousness. I, however, am not very good at roller sets. I’m pretty good at pressing curls. The marcels are something I can work.
You will get frustrated. When I say frustrated I mean you WILL want to throw your mannequin head across the room. I do NOT suggest this at all. This is not recommended. What you should do instead, Take a step back, take deep breaths, think about what you are rushing, think about how to fix it. Give yourself time to relax…I say 5 minutes will help. If when thinking of the way to solve your issue ask your instructor.
This is not all practical work. You will have homework, test, and finals. Study!!!! DO YOUR HOMEWORK. It is so easy.
Study your first aid stuff. You need it for the state board. A man or women will randomly go up to students and say You cut yourself what do you do? or you cut your client what do you do?
Always pack up to three days before your state board finals. People wait until the last minute and then end up screwed without a mannequin or a stand or their shears. If you don’t have something, go out and buy it straight away!
If you don’t enjoy it stop the program and do something you love. You’ll be better off in the end.
MOST IMPORTANT IT IS AN HOURS BASED CLASS DO NOT MISS CLASS YOU CAN ONLY MISS 12 HOURS OF THEORY OR YOU WILL GET KICKED OUT. YOU CAN ONLY MISS 35 HOURS OF PRACTICAL.
YOU CAN NOT MAKE UP THEORY!!!!!!
- You can do some hair on close friends and family for some extra cash.
- You will have fun.
- You will learn a lot about how to take good care of hair.
- It is time-consuming. I am in school 35 hrs a week.
- it’s hard work.
- you are always on your feet.
