If you’ve made the commitment to go to cosmetology school, you need to think about time management. The program is meant to take 13 months to complete in the state of California. It’s so important to finish on time. Students who finish on time are much more likely to get a job. The truth is that people who don’t finish in time are at huge risk for not finishing at all. If you’ve taken out loans to pay for beauty school, you have to pay them back whether you get certified or not. Time management can help you get your education done on time!

Here are a few suggestions to help you make the most of cosmetology school.

  1. If you’re working, talk to your boss about your school schedule. One of the many great things about Colleen O’Hara’s Beauty Academy is that you can take day or evening classes. Work with your employer so you can get to class on time. This is especially important for exam time!
  2. Protect your study time. Let your friends and family know that you may have to decline invitations. Tell them in advance it’s because of school. This should help avoid hurt feelings.
  3. Talk to your instructors. This is super important if you ever feel confused about a topic in class. Go to the teacher right away to get clarification. Do not waste time being unclear. It’s also a great idea to get to know your instructors because they can help provide contacts for you to find a job after graduation.
  4. Form a study group. Having a group of friends to study with makes it more fun. It also helps keep you accountable. Your friends can often help explain things from class that you may not have understood.
