Research Potential Cosmetology Specialties
Love nail art, but not sure exactly what a nail technician does? Start there! From coloring hair to editorial makeup, looking into the day-to-day job responsibilities and skills needed for those career paths can help you decide whether or not they are right for you. Speaking to local beauty professionals in the specialty you are considering can also help you decide. Asking what they love about their job, as well as what they dislike can help you get a better idea of what it’s like. Still unsure? Remember that you will get to perform these skills in a hands-on setting once in school, so you can always decide later on what works best for you once there is some experience under your belt. Schedule a tour of DuVall’s School of Cosmetology and speak with some of our instructors!
What was it that first made you want to go to beauty school? Was it the elaborate makeup tutorials from your favorite blogger? Amazing hair coloring trends? Learning how to best treat certain skincare conditions? Hone in on what first got you excited about being a beauty professional and then focus on cosmetology specialties that are related.
Choosing your Cosmetology Specialty
The bottom line is that whatever specialty you choose should be something you love doing! Bringing your passion and joy into the job can help create unforgettable client services and styles.
