Pursuing your dreams takes guts, gumption, and grace. While you need to give yourself a lot of grace as you make mistakes (we all do), the guts and gumption are harder to come by. Are you feeling nervous about attending cosmetology school?
Banish the nerves with the tips below. They can help you succeed and graduate from your training program salon ready. From participating in every event to leveling up, we have the keys to thriving in your program right here.
The way to make the most of your education is by attending campus events. This way you gain exposure to more opportunities and learn more about where you are headed.
Your destination in this industry is largely determined by how much you put into it. When you stay committed to learning and build your knowledge base by participating as much as possible, you’ll grow so much faster as a cosmetologist.
2. Introduce Yourself
Do you have your eye on a salon or spa that you have always wanted to work for? Have you wanted to own one just like it?
A great way to give yourself a boost as you earn your beauty school degree is to introduce yourself at those places. Ask them how someone like you becomes part of their business. You may be surprised at their openness and excitement about your goals and your drive to succeed.
We make privately owned salons and spa our target for your placement after graduation. These are the places with great earning potential, and we want you to succeed! Everything we teach is with this goal in mind.
3. Cosmetology School: Level Up
Cosmetology students have levels 1 – 4. Our curriculum has been co-developed with Redken, and we’re constantly updating it with ongoing collaboration. Push yourself to jump levels during school to give yourself the best opportunity to up your future right after graduation!
We celebrate achievements at TSPA! When you reach a milestone or have a big win, we are excited to share your joy. When you level up in our curriculum, that’s a huge deal and we’re thrilled for all our students who meet this goal.
4. Booking and Prescribing Products
Practice makes perfect. Booking is something you might feel intimidated by right now, but school is where you shake your fears off. Ask guests, family, friends and even strangers for bookings!
Let’s be clear: you’re not selling products. You’re prescribing products, which means you’re providing a solution to someone’s very real need.
Get out there on that student salon floor and learn how to bend and warp all of your fears. You’ll find your voice to success when it comes to prescribing.
