Are you always on top of the latest hair and makeup trends? Or, better yet, are you trying to start trends of your own?
If so, you’ve probably considered attending a cosmetology academy in Pennsylvania and starting a career in the exciting beauty industry.
Cosmetology schools prepare students for careers in hairstyling, makeup, skin care and manicuring. Typically, training is broken down into three distinct areas:
- Cosmetology – A comprehensive program that trains students in hair, makeup, skin care and manicuring.
- Esthetics – A program focused entirely on skin care and unwanted hair removal.
- Nail Technology – A program focused on nail care and manicuring techniques.
Choosing a Cosmetology Academy in Pennsylvania
When investigating cosmetology schools, you’ll want to make sure they offer the program of study you’re most interested in pursuing. You’ll also want to ensure that the schools are a good fit for you — both in terms of the overall atmosphere and the educational offerings. “You want the experience to be enjoyable,” Jolie instructor Monica Richendrfer said. “ If you are not happy at your school, then your attendance will suffer.”
One of the best ways to ensure that you select the best school for you, is to check it out yourself. “Visit a class and speak with students and staff,” Richendrfer said.
Jolie Academy makes it easy for prospective students to visit and learn about the school, as they offer a job shadowing program for interested individuals. The program allows prospective students to visit the school and spend a “day in the life” of a Jolie student. During the half-day or full-day visit, you’ll sit in on classes, meet instructors and get a feel for the overall atmosphere of the school. It’s a great way to find out why so many students choose Jolie as their preferred cosmetology academy in Pennsylvania.
