If you want to build a career providing hair, skin and nail
services, classroom learning alone isn’t going to cut it.
Hands-on training – on real clients in a salon setting under
the supervision of licensed instructors – is essential to your preparation for
a successful career in cosmetology, esthiology, or nail technology.
This combination of teaching methods is rare, but it’s a
hallmark of the curriculum at State College of Beauty Culture
in Wausau, WI, and it gives our students a competitive edge.
Learning by Doing: A Hands-On Approach
There’s no better way to learn than by doing, and in the
beauty industry that means cutting, coloring and perming real hair, applying
makeup to real faces, and giving manicures and pedicures to real people.
Students who learn the fundamentals with a hands-on approach
will have a major jumpstart on their beauty career. They should get substantial
practice in the following:
For cosmetology –
· Hair cutting, hair styling, coloring and perming
· Manicures, pedicures and artificial nails
· Basic skin care and makeup
· Hair removal
For esthiology –
· Facials, back facials, and body treatments
· Makeup and artificial lashes
· Hair removal
For nail technology –
· Acrylic and gel artificial nails
· Manicure and pedicures
· Hair removal
Benefits of Working with Real Clients
Some schools that offer cosmetology programs claim to offer
hands-on training. But be careful, because this could simply mean practicing
skills on mannequins, not real clients. When scouting schools, be sure to ask
if you’ll work with clients in a salon setting as part of your training.
Not only does working with real hair, skin, and nails help
students gain technical expertise and confidence; being in a salon helps them
hone customer service and communication skills that will be critical when they
start to build their own clientele after graduation.
The Private Beauty School Advantage
Selecting the right school is one of the most important
choices you’ll make in your future as a beauty industry professional.
Private beauty colleges, like State College of Beauty
Culture, focus solely on cosmetology and the beauty industry. Licensed
instructors are passionate about the industry. The curriculum is robust and
Our students are required to learn in both the classroom and
on the salon floor – which helps produce the best cosmetologists, nail
technicians, and estheticians in the industry. A specified number of cuts,
styles, perms, color treatments, and other services – on real customers, not
mannequins – is required. We also help students create a client list, get
referrals and build their business.
This real-life learning experience is what sets us apart
from schools that offer a technical diploma in cosmetology.
It’s also important to attend a nationally accredited
institution. State College of Beauty Culture is accredited by the National
Accrediting Commission for Career Arts and Sciences (NACCAS), the largest
accrediting agency for beauty and cosmetology schools.
