Are you about to start school at Hays Academy of Hair Design in Salina or Hays? We are looking forward to having you join us and teaming together to achieve success! Hays Academy of Hair Design strives to provide the most hirable, financially responsible graduates in the country, and we will be giving you a well-rounded education that can help expedite your ability to succeed in this industry.
There are a few things you should consider and prepare for before you start school. Being well prepared allows you to maximize the time you spend at school and promotes growth and success! Keep these things in mind as you approach your start date!
1-Ensure you have a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude gives you confidence and creates a feel-good and fun atmosphere. When you are having fun, time flies by! Bring a positive attitude and put on a smile!
2- Inform those around you of what you are doing. If you have children, make sure you let their childcare and your backup childcare know that you are going to school and that there may be times you need their assistance. For example, on Thursdays we are in school until 7:30. This may require having a family member or friend to pick your child up from daycare and keep them for you until you are out of school. Also, let your current employer know your new school hours so they can schedule you around when you need to be in class! In addition to making things easier, letting people know what you are up to allows them to consider you as their next stylist! It is never too early to promote yourself!
3-Prioritize your schedule. It is vital that you set time aside for family, work, studying and etc. Making a schedule is your best bet to ensure that all of your needs get met. Finding a balance may take some adjusting, but in the end, this will prepare you and your family for the most smooth transition.
4-Look the part. Being a cosmetology student, you need to look like a cosmetologist! Hair done, neat, clean clothes and makeup done are all essentials to sending a message to those around you that you are a professional. Feel free to come into our Salina or Hays campus and get a haircut by one of our current students! This will allow you to make a connection and see how we do things! We would love to see you, too!
When it comes to trying something new, you may find yourself a little stressed, nervous or scared. We understand that, but know we are so excited to see you start your journey to becoming a cosmetologist or nail technician. We will help you to feel right at home in any way that we can!
