5 Reasons You Should Go To Cosmetology School

Jan 29 2020

Thinking about the future? If you’re considering cosmetology school, you should know this can be a great opportunity to learn new skills and make lifelong friends! Don’t believe us? Check out our top 6 reasons why attending a cosmetology school can be such a rewarding experience.

1. Flexible Education

Beauty school is a little different from attending a traditional college, and the classrooms may look a little bit different as well. You get to work with mannequins, salon chairs, hair colors, and more. At The Salon Professional Academy (TSPA) Kenosha, our curriculum is flexible and available completely online. We strive to accommodate students with busy lives and schedules.

A cosmetology education teaches not only the theory behind hair science and skin chemistry, but also the techniques to applying makeup and hair colors. Some subjects you can expect to learn in cosmetology school are:

  • hair cutting
  • hair coloring
  • manicures and pedicures
  • makeup application
  • and facials!

At TSPA Kenosha, our programs are designed to have students practice in practical skills as well as academic, so you can be better prepared for both the written and practical elements of the state licensure exam. In Wisconsin, you must complete at least 1,550 hours of cosmetology instruction to apply to be licensed. Check out our blog on getting licensed in Wisconsin for more information!

2. Meet Amazing People

You can make a lot of friends during your time in cosmetology school! Your fellow students likely have a lot of the same dreams and interests as you. These are the people you can work together with in the student salon and learn from the same instructors and material. As you graduate, both instructors and peers could become coworkers, business partners, or local connections you can count on.

Here are some of the things our TSPA Kenosha students have said about the connections they made in school:

While at The Salon Professional Academy, I made new friends with the girls from my class who will always be a part of my life. Thank you for making my family bigger!

Overall, my experience here at TSPA was great. The administration was very understanding and supportive. I also loved my teachers. I feel that they not only prepared me for an awesome career but also provided a positive learning environment that I could call home.

3. Be Creative Everyday

Being a creative person, you may be already drawn to cosmetology because it allows so much artistic freedom. You get to mix colors, styles, and you won’t necessarily be limited to hair. As a cosmetologist you can expand your skills in makeup, nails, and so much more.

5. Find Jobs That Are In-Demand

Cosmetologists can have the opportunity to find a variety of work after graduation and licensure. In 2018, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said there would be an 8% increase of cosmetology jobs within the next decade. This type of occupation can sometimes offer flexible schedules, commutes, and other perks!
