10 Essential Tips for Beauty School

The best advice you can get is from someone who has graduated before you. The following tips, from this video, will help you get the most out of your beauty college experience.

1. Be Prepared for Book Work

Beauty school isn’t all fun and games. Much of the work you do will be studying things like hair theory and taking tests. Make sure your school supplies include pencils and paper (or an app) for taking notes. You’ll soon learn that good notes are worth their weight in gold.

2. Learn to Deal With Drama

Whenever you work with a group of people, there’s always a chance you’ll have to deal with drama. Some individuals thrive on being the center of attention. Don’t let these things get in the way of your education. Honestly, it’s less important to make friends than it is to further your career.

3. Find a Study Partner

Sometimes, a school environment can be overwhelming. By finding someone to be your study partner, you’ll always have someone available to ask about assignments, lessons and techniques.

4. Show Off Your Creativity

One of the best things you can do for your career is to showcase your creative talents. Don’t be afraid to be different. People will remember your unique style and it may even lead to future business.

5. Don’t Get Behind

It’s never good to fall behind in your studies, especially if your career depends on it. Having genuine talent means nothing if you fail your classes!

6. Listen to Your Clients

No matter who you’re working with, it’s vital to listen to what your clients have to say. If someone gives you a negative critique after a session, use the feedback to focus on areas you may need to improve upon.

7. Be a Team Player

No one likes a difficult classmate or coworker, and a big part of being an esthetician is to be very personable and have good communication skills. Be respectful of your peers and don’t drag your feet when working with others.

8. Never Stop Learning

Even when your courses are over, you’ll be far from knowing everything. Use every opportunity to expand your skills, both in beauty school and on the job.

9. Develop Your Own Style

Your unique style is a big part of what will draw clients to you throughout your career. Beauty school gives you a multitude of new skills and techniques to play with. Take what you’re learning and make it your own. This will set you apart in the future.

10. Ask Questions

This may be the most important tip of all. Beauty college is all about learning new things. If there’s ever anything you’re not completely clear on, make sure to ask. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question.
