    If you’re passionate about hair, makeup, skin care and anything else in the realm of beauty, a cosmetology career may be perfect for you. Practicing cosmetologists perform beauty services for a living, but they’re also huge trendsetters in the world of hair and makeup, and they work hard daily to make their clients look and feel great. If you aren’t sure exactly how to become a cosmetologist, take a look at this guide that can help you get started:


    How do I become a cosmetologist?
    The first step to becoming a beauty professional is to begin researching cosmetology schools. Depending on where you live and the school you choose, you will likely need a high school diploma or GED, and there is generally an age minimum for attending. Some cosmetology schools offer guidance to help you earn your high school diploma or GED, so if you need to do that, be sure to ask about those programs as you’re researching your options. The cosmetology training will prepare you to take and pass a state board exam. Once you’ve graduated and passed the licensing exam, you’ll be ready to start practicing as a cosmetologist!


    What do I learn in a cosmetology program?
    Cosmetology programs cover a lot of ground, and you’ll take part in both conceptual learning and practical hands-on training. You’ll be taught about hair, skin and nail care, but the right program will also prepare you for the business and professional aspects of interviewing for and having a cosmetology job, and even managing a salon.


    Hair care covers learning how to cut and style all different types of hair, permanent waving and chemical straightening processes and professional coloring and bleaching techniques. You’ll also master various manicuring and pedicuring techniques, performing different types of facials, and eyebrow and makeup practices. The education will also cover the anatomical and physiological reasons behind the techniques you’re learning, best safety and sanitation practices, and the state’s laws and regulations you’ll need to follow as a cosmetologist.


    Choosing a career path
    Licensed beauticians find careers in various fields of the beauty industry. Graduates of cosmetology training programs have found careers as salon and spa owners, stylists and makeup artists for film, TV and magazines, product sales representatives and practicing hair stylists and coloring specialists. Many cosmetologists are able to work for themselves and create their own schedules.


    Job outlook 
    There are expected to be 13 percent more jobs in cosmetology, barbering and hairdressing in 2022 than there were in 2012, which means the field is growing – and fast!


    If this sounds like the right career path for you, don’t hesitate to find a great cosmetology program that will get you started!

  • small4 How Can You Tell If a Cosmetology School Will Be a Good Fit?

    If you have serious dreams of launching a beauty career, then attending a beauty college is a must. However, there are a number of things that you should know before choosing a cosmetology school. First, decide what’s important and what a beauty school should offer you. These things will be benefits like accredited programs and a curriculum that addresses today’s beauty trends. Find out if the school is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS). Accreditation means a school has met or surpassed industry standards.


    Ask a school representative to schedule a visit. A tour of the school’s campus and its facilities can speak volumes about its ability to prepare students for a successful career. The best schools will offer salon services. This allows students to learn, practice and develop their confidence and skills in the helpful presence of talented instructors. There’s a possibility that your salon patrons will become real customers after graduating and launching your career.


    The best beauty schools will also offer job placement services. Marinello’s Career Services department does an excellent job of preparing students for employment by offering resume critiques, help in developing a professional portfolio, assistance in learning valuable customer service skills, and mock interviews that can help prepare graduates for the real thing. A good Career Services department should also offer strong job-placement services as well. Your education is important.  And Marinello understands that launching your career is equally important.


    The best beauty schools will be up front about your program’s full cost and financial aid programs that are available to those who qualify. How are textbooks paid for? Does your program include a cosmetology student kit? Have the school’s tuition processes been fully explained? Will the school allow you to meet with some of the students and instructors? Perhaps one of the most important signs that a school will be a good fit is the number of students who graduate and go on to become beauty industry professionals. This is a sure sign that students are getting the best education possible and the industry values their skills.


    For more than 100 years, Marinello Schools of Beauty has provided an education to thousands of students. Many of these students graduated and went on to find the career of their dreams.  If you’re looking for a cosmetology school that offers one of the best educations in the nation, Marinello Schools of Beauty is the answer.
