Beautician

How can I learn to become a Beautician?

Beauticians generally attend vocational cosmetology school. Training often lasts 9-24 months and involves hands-on practice in hairdressing, skincare techniques, and other beautician specialties. Training for barbers and hairdressers may take significantly longer than that for manicurists and skin care specialists. Some beauticians take on apprenticeship positions after school that may last 1-3 years.

All states require beauticians to be licensed with the exception of shampooers and makeup artists. Licensing requirements vary by state and one generally must be certified in their own state to practice cosmetology. Certain states require a high school diploma or GED in order to become licensed. Typically, one must have completed a state approved training program and be over the age of 16 in order to gain certification. Licensing exams generally consist of a written test and a practical evaluation of the cosmetology specialty (hairdressing, skincare, manicure, etc.). Separate licenses are often required for different cosmetology practices.

It is important for beauticians to be informed in new products, techniques, and trends to be successful. Beauticians commonly attend workshops, training programs, and product shows regularly to maintain a current knowledge in the field.

Hair dressers often work with both males and females and may have a regular clientele that they work for on a recurring basis. Product sales are often an important responsibility for hair stylists. Some hairdressers also manage the scheduling and finances of the salon, taking appointments and managing income. Hairdressers may also shampoo their clients hair and work to maintain the workplace by sweeping and cleaning. Some salons employ shampoo technicians as well. Shampooers are often trained and paid less than hairdressers and are responsible for washing clients hair and maintaining a clean workplace.

Manicurists, or nail technicians specialize in the care of hands and feet. Manicurists provide nail care by shaping, coloring, and embellishing fingernails and toenails. Manicurists regularly apply acrylic or gels nails for clients as well as perform massage and skin care for hands and feet. Manicurists are commonly responsible for the same salon maintenance as hairdressers, with sanitation of the workplace and tools being of the utmost importance.�To reduce exposure to product chemicals, manicurists work in well-ventilated buildings and wear face masks.

Estheticians practice skin care and perform services such as facials, hair removal, microdermabrasion, a...
