What it takes to really make it through cosmetology school.


What it takes to really make it through cosmetology school.

Cosmetology school is an exciting and upbeat place where one can gather the needs to build upon a career that knows no ends.  It is a fun time, but it is also a challenging one!  Knowing what it takes to make it assists in your ability to follow through with the end goal in mind.

Have a positive mental attitude.

A positive mental attitude will set you apart from your peers, if utilized on a consistent basis.  This attitude also will be consumed by your peers since people take on the stronger roles of those around them.  When you present yourself and your objectives in a positive way, you tend to receive positive feedback.

Be prepared to make physical contact with others.

It may sound silly, that you will be expected to be touching others while being in a close proximity to them while conducting cosmetology services, but you will be.  This is a hands on career, and it requires much of the cosmetologist physically. Being on your feet, using your hands, arms and shoulders can be exhausting. This is a physical job that is physically demanding. But, the fact that you transform lives by making people feel incredible inside and out makes all the difference in the world.

Get comfortable being uncomfortable.

Cosmetology school has a high paced curriculum that can promote a great deal of stress.  Being able to manage that stress is a pivotal attribute to your success.  Furthermore, it is vital that you are able to step out of your comfort zone when it comes time to build a clientele.  This can be demonstrated time and time again as you reach out to people, letting them know what you do for a living.

Be a sponge.

Being a sponge requires being willing to absorb information from those around you.  Having the ability to gather both technical information as well as business related information from your educators, guest speakers and business owners will allow you to prosper!

With these skill traits in hand, there is no doubt that you will be able to overcome obstacles to become a talented and successful stylist.  If you have questions on how to start your cosmetology career in Salina, Kansas call Krista at (785) 833-2280 or email her at [email protected].
