Why Getting Your Cosmetology License Is a Great Move

At Colleen O’Hara’s Beauty Academy we pride ourselves in helping you to fulfill the necessary requirements to obtain a cosmetology license. The first step to finding a career in the beauty industry is going to school so finding one that provides a great learning environment is pivotal. Once you graduate from cosmetology school you can look for places to work in beauty salons, barber shops, Hollywood, or even internationally. This program is fairly short compared to traditional four year colleges so if you keep your eye on the prize, soak in all of the lessons, and learn all you can from the amazing staff, you can be working and making money long before many of your friends. Colleen O’Hara’s program is designed to help set students up for success in obtaining a license.

Attend a Great Beauty School

Each state has different requirements for licensing. So, if you plan to move out of California, be sure to check out the license requirements in the state you are going to. If you plan to build your career in California, you must go to a licensed beauty school and complete the training program and apprenticeship hours set by the state. The hours required vary depending on the type of license. After finishing the program and apprenticeship hours, you must pass the state’s cosmetology board exams. After all of these requirements are met, the state will issue your your California cosmetology license. This is when all of the time you spent in beauty school pays off and you are free to start searching for your dream job.
