Is Cosmetology School Hard?

Cosmetology school can differ from traditional schools. Why?! Because it offers a unique learning environment. You learn in both the classroom and hand on in the performance floor. Typically if students have struggled with a traditional learning environment, like high school, they find cosmetology school to be easier. The great thing about cosmetology is it integrates both types of learning styles!

To become a licensed cosmetologist the state requires you to pass the state licensing exam. Students who struggle with taking tests tend to dread the idea of taking a state exam; however, we have several tips and tools that prepare our students for the written and practical exam – no matter what your learning style is!

What is Self-Care?

Self-care is a hot topic of discussion in the media – and among friends. Who doesn’t love a “treat yo-self” moment?! But what does self-care really mean? In essence, self-care is the mindful action of doing things to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. It ensures that you are taking care of you.

Self-care can look different to every single person. It can mean taking 10 minutes out of your day to meditate, making it to the gym for an hour, or indulging in your favorite dessert!

For many people, the simple act of skin, hair, and nail care is a way to practice self-care. For example, something as simple as a fresh manicure just makes you feel refreshed and put together. After all – when you look good, you feel good!

Right now #self-care is trending, which means it’s really a time for the beauty industry to shine. We lead stressful lives and people are always looking for ways to relieve stress. Making a visit to the salon or spa is one (very popular) way of #self-care.
