Necessary Job Skills

To get a college application you have to have your GED or High school diploma. That's all you need to apply. Then once you get through college and go for a job you have to get your cosmetologist licence.

You need to be able to make small talk with your clients, also being able to meet your clients needs and what they want and what hair cut or make up would look good on them.

Some words I live by are "Find what you are passionate about and continue to work hard every day towards a successful future. Even when you think you've reached the top, keep striving for new success because the possibilities are endless." -Nino DeAngelis  This is just saying that even when you think you are at your best you can still be better!

Someone who has influenced what I want to do when I grow up is my aunt Lori. She is a hair cutter, and she has always been there for me and believed in me and what I wanted to do. She has taught me everything I know about doing hair. I know she is always going to be there to help me out with my career choice. My father also has been a role model, He has always been there for me and believed in what I wanted to do. He also taught me a good work ethic.

With cosmetology you are always on your feet. In an article "A day in the life: Cosmetology", Remington College source talked about the life of a cosmetologist, "And there’s one thing you can always depend on: Each client is different, and no two days are alike." I feel like I would live my life like this; never knowing who is going to come in and what they want. I really look forward to this part of my career. Then again you can sometimes be overwhelmed with what everyone wants and if you do it wrong. But this is part of the job that I look forward to because I feel like I can meet the clients need as best as I can.
