ProcessApplyingBeautySchool

Sometimes the first steps are the hardest. When it comes to applying to beauty school, knowing where to begin may seem a bit overwhelming. It can be difficult deciding exactly what you want to specialize in, what beauty school to attend, and how to go about applying to beauty school. To better get a hold on these factors, learn the process of applying to beauty school, and what requirements you need to finish before you can be accepted.

 

High School

 

Depending on which state you attend cosmetology school in, you may need a high school diploma or a GED to get in. Because the education requirements vary depending from state to state, do your research beforehand to find out if this is necessary. Illinois for example does not require a diploma to apply to beauty school, but you will need to take an additional test before getting in. Even if high school is not a requirement for beauty school in your state, it’s a good idea to get a diploma or GED, whether this is before or after you apply to beauty school.

 

Age Requirement

 

The age requirement for applying to beauty school will once again be determine in part by the state you live in. In most states, you must be at least 16 years old to apply. You will still need a GED or high school diploma in the required states if you are looking to apply this young. While this is the minimum age requirement, there is no maximum. Those who are looking to attend beauty school later in life can start their journey now! It’s never too late to start the career of your dreams.

 

What to Bring

 

When applying to beauty school, there are a few things you will need on hand:

 

  • Your driver’s license

  • If required your high school diploma or GED

  • Financial aid forms

  • Letter of recommendation

  • If you are not 18 yet, a signature from your parent allowing you to attend beauty school
