You’ll also learn about hygiene and sanitation practices essential for any cosmetologist. Your tools will become the key ingredient to help you master your craft. Your new ESI student kit includes some of the best tools in the industry.
Cosmetology school involves plenty of hands-on experience, which means you’ll be practicing on mannequins and real guests. During your first month, you’ll spend more time practicing on mannequins until you gain the necessary skills and confidence to share your new skills with guests. There is an extensive menu of services you’ll be performing with ease. We’ll also teach you critical marketing skills to help build your book of business and ensure your success after graduation. Your ability to gain and nurture your guests will be easy and comfortable.
Cosmetology school involves more than just hands-on practice. You’ll also need to learn about the theory behind various techniques and practices. It may include learning about different hair types and textures, skin types, and conditions, as well as the science behind hair color and chemical treatments. L’Oreal is one of the leading color specialists in the beauty industry, and you’ll be learning about some of the most advanced color systems available. The world of hair color is truly an art and science effort. ESI is proud to be acknowledged by L’Oreal Professionnel for Excellence in Education.
Cosmetology school requires good time management skills. You’ll need to balance your time between classroom lectures, hands-on practice, studying, and homework assignments. This can be challenging, but it’s an essential skill you’ll need to master as a cosmetology student. It’s also a skill used by some of the most successful people.
