User Guide To Beauty Therapy Schools

A beauty school is an institution where a person is taught basic and advanced lessons in cosmetology as well as skin care, hairstyling, manicure and pedicure. Most beauty schools require their applicants to have a high school diploma. A full-time program may generally last between nine months to one year. Scholarships, grants and loans are also offered to applicants provided that they pass certain requirements of an accredited beauty school.

Beauty schools not only teach their students the basics of cosmetology, but they also teach them infection control and decontamination to make sure that their clients are served safely. They also learn about the basics of chemistry and anatomy as well as basic entrepreneurship and communication for students who wish to open their own beauty salons.

Accredited beauty schools are equipped with proper facilities and equipment needed for training since it is very important for students to absorb a lot of information about the trade. Accredited beauty schools also have licensed instructors to teach the students as required by the accrediting agency. Furthermore, accredited beauty schools are more reputable and they give the students a chance to inherit that reputation which is needed when looking for a job after graduating.
The individual disciplines within cosmetology include:

  • Shampoo technician shampoos and conditions the client's hair.
  • Manicurist provides treatment for the fingernails or hands. A pedicure, on the other hand, is performed on the feet.
  • Estheticians specializes in beautifying the skin by performing cosmetic skin treatments such as massages, and hair removal.
  • Nail technician specializes in the art form and care of nails including manicures, pedicures, fake nails and gel nails.
  • Hair stylist specializes in cutting and styling hair.
  • Hair colorist specializes in coloring hair.

The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations is the government agency that leads the country's education and workplace training as well as transition to work. It collaborates with the different government agencies with the states and territories to provide easy access to educational services and support programs to the Australian people. It also aims to increase workforce participation and promote fair work practices in Australia.

Beauty school tips

  • A good beauty school groups their courses accordingly. Depending on the program, they may offer a combination of courses such as makeup, esthetics and nails while some group them separately.
  • Beauty schools should offer day and evening programs for those who are working. Some schools offer day classes from Tuesday to Saturday and night classes from Monday through Friday evening.
  • Beauty schools have different attendance procedures to keep track of your hours for certification. It is best to find out the attendance policy of the school to prevent any unnecessary absences.
  • Check the list of beauty school accreditation requirements and the list of licensed beauty schools in your area.
  • Visit the school in person and observe everything about their institution, work ethics, protocol and many more.
  • Check the websites of beauty schools in your area to compare and select the best one for you.
