Interested in cosmetology school but not exactly sure if it is the right decision for you? Make the difficult decision an easier one by checking out Avalon School of Cosmetology’s 5 signs you should go to cosmetology school.
You started experimenting with hair, makeup and other beauty supplies at a young age
If you were that child who cut their own bangs at age 4 or would try and convince your siblings and friends to let you do their makeup, you clearly have been interested in beauty since a young age. Turning your lifelong interests into a career is probably the smartest thing you could do. Your career is a big part of your life so having a job that you are passionate about is the first way to live a happier and more fulfilling life.
You are already the go-to for your friends’ and family’s beauty needs
Before weddings, dances, or even just a Friday night with friends, there is usually that one person who steps in and does everybody’s hair and/or makeup. If you are this person that so many people turn to in a time of [beauty] need, you clearly have talent that others recognize, and already have a clientele to help you get going on your beauty career!
You enjoy making people feel good about themselves
Bringing out the beauty in people is such a rewarding feeling. When somebody looks in the mirror after you cut and style their hair or do their makeup and they say “WOW, I look good”, you get an amazing feeling of fulfillment. After all, it is a powerful quality to be able to boost somebody’s confidence and make them feel and look beautiful not only on the outside but on the inside as well.
You can start up a conversation with anybody
Whether you are riding the bus, waiting in line at the grocery store, or just sitting in class, you are somebody who finds a way to chat with any type of person about anything. This is such a useful characteristic to have in life especially for beauty professionals. A cosmetologist interacts with several different people on a daily basis so having the ability to strike up a conversation with whoever ends up in your chair will make them feel more comfortable and, therefore, is a positive quality for beauticians.
You want a successful career that doesn’t require a desk
Desk jobs can be a drag for a large majority of people. If you feel this way, then a desk job is probably not for you. Luckily, the beauty industry has so many options to choose from to keep your career fun and interesting. You get to interact with colleagues who have the same interests as you, and get paid to exercise your own creativity and imagination to make a work-of-art on your canvas of hair, skin, or nails.
