Finding Your School

Take a Tour

You know a future in beauty is for you. Now you’ll need to find a school. The first thing you can do to find your perfect fit is to take a tour! Tours allow you to gain an inside look into what a school is like behind the scenes. From the classrooms, to the salon, and pretty much everything in between, you will be able to get a wider view of the school.

In addition to the school itself, you will also be able to peek into the culture of the school and determine if the school is a good fit for your personality and needs. Taking a tour gives you an opportunity to meet the staff and get all your questions answered and are not something that should be missed!

Getting Ready For Your First Day

Arrange Your Schedule

While there are many scheduling options available in beauty school, there still may be some things you need to do to make sure that the start of your education experience goes off without a hitch.

Make sure you have care for any children or family members worked out and have arranged a new schedule with your day job if needed. In addition, make sure you tell people that you are starting this journey. Not only will their support be instrumental in the months to come but will make it easier to decline invitations on days you need to be studying.

Putting school first will help to make your experience the best it can be and to get you on the right track for an amazing career.

Dress The Part

Many schools have a dress code, and Colleen O’Hara’s Beauty Academy is no exception. Make sure you review the student handbook to know what clothing, hair, and shoes are required, and then get everything ready before day one. It is the first day of school after all, and you want to look your very best!

Have Your Tools Ready

While your enrollment in beauty school includes a kit with all of your beauty school supplies, you will want to make sure that everything is ready and in working order.

You will go through your kit with your future aspiring beauty professionals within your first week of class. Make sure to reach out to your instructors or even current students to know if everything you will need in place and what other things you may want to help make your experience the best it can be!
