Transcript of Cosmetology

Cosmetology What is cosmetology?
Cosmetology is the practice or skill of beautifying the face, hair and skin. Cosmetology is seperated into many sub-categories.
Those are: Shampoo Tech Manicurist Esthetician Nail Tech Hair Tech Cosmetic Tattooing Most of the time when a person hears of cosmetology they think of a salon, or a stylist. Generally that statement is correct, being a cosmetologist actually means that you perform actions that help to beautify a persons skin, face, or hair just like mentioned earlier. In 2010 there were close to 1,000,000 cosmetology jobs in the US alone Educational Requirements: In order to work as a hairstylist or cosmetologist, one must attend a state-licensed barber or cosmetology school and at least have your high school diploma by the time of completion. Training programs in hairstyling and cosmetology last approximately nine months and may result in earning an associate degree. Cosmetologists earned a median annual salary of $23,330 ($11.21/hour) in 2009. Wages varied by actual job title. In 2010 the average salary was $42,350. This double in a year. Though the slight economic boost did help. Salary: Progression brings one more profit as they graduate from cosmetology school, gain experience, and build a great clientele. Some cosmetologists manage salons or cosmetology schools, lease booth space in salons, or open their own salons after several years of experience Others teach in barber or cosmetology schools or provide training through vocational cosmetology schools Still others advance to become sales representatives, image or fashion consultants, or examiners for State certification boards To be eligible for certification, most job seekers are required to graduate from a State-licensed cosmetology school A high school diploma or GED is required for some personal appearance workers in some States Full-time cosmetology programs in barbering and cosmetology school usually last 9 months and may lead to an associate cosmetology degree but training for manicurists and pedicurists and skin care specialists requires significantly less time The median salary per year on the other hand amounts to $23,140 every year. The bottom 10% of cosmetologists make around $15,530 while the top 10% make about $42,460. These however are just the salary figures. Shampoo Tech A shampoo technician shampoos and conditions a client's hair in preparation for the hair stylist A manicure is a cosmetic treatment for the fingernails or hands. The word "manicure" derives from Latin: Manus for hand, cura for "care." When performed on the feet, such a treatment is a pedicure. Many manicures start by soaking the hands in a softening substance, followed by the application of lotion. A common type of manicure involves shaping the nails and applying nail polish. A manicure may also include the application of artificial nail tips, acrylics, or artificial nail gels. Some manicures can include the painting of pictures or designs on the nails, or applying small decals or imitation jewels. Manicurists usually take special cosmetology courses. MANICURIST Estheticians work at salons and day spas. Estheticians specialize in beautifying the skin. They perform cosmetic skin treatments including hair removal (waxing, threading) massage, body wraps, skin care, eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, aromatherapy, permanent make up, and make-up application. Esthetician Nail Tech Cosmetic Tattooing Shampoo technicians must have a thorough understanding of how to cut and style hair. That includes handling scissors, clippers and applying hair sprays and gels. When interacting with customers, technicians should be polite, professional and able to carry a conversation. A Nail Technician has some of the skills of a manicurist, pedicurist or cosmetologist. The Nail Technician focuses on fingernails and toenails, giving clients manicures and pedicures. All beauty workers, including Nail Technicians, perform business record keeping and clean and sanitize their tools and work area. Hair Tech Permanent makeup, or cosmetic tattooing, is a fast-growing part of the health and beauty industry.

If you have faint eyebrows, no eyebrows, or partial eyebrows, a cosmetic tattoo can help. Cosmetic tattooing also has more serious applications,like improving the appearance of a nipple after breast reconstruction due to illnesses such as cancer. Applying permanent makeup involves a needle that penetrates the skin and pigment that is released into the hole, just like a tattoo. A lip tattoo can reduce "lipstick bleed," and give definition to the lip line. With a colored lip tattoo, lip scars disappear, plus you can kiss lipstick good-bye. After an eyeliner tattoo, put away your eye pencils forever! It's the same process used for hundreds of years to create designs on skin. However, in more recent years, greater attention has been focused on proper sterilization, techniques, and licensing Also, tattoo artists and permanent makeup artists are being trained in more specialized applications like cosmetic facial tattoos.

After getting permanent makeup, it takes about three weeks for the color to fade to its permanent shade.

Cosmetic Tattooing is not covered by insurance with exceptions of illness reconstruction •Cuts, trims and shapes hair or hair pieces •Bleaches, dyes, or tints hair •Combs, brushes, and sprays hair or wigs to set style
•Attaches wig or hairpiece to model head and dresses wigs and hairpieces •Massages and treats scalp for hygienic and remedial purposes •Administers therapeutic medication and advises patron to seek medical treatment for chronic or contagious scalp conditions
Hair Techs are similar to Shampoo Techs. More of a technique of styling and cutting is known in the Hair Tech Field Schooling is generally the same as a shampoo tech, the only exception is more of the techniques are taught. For many in the nail technology or hair design business, owning their own nail or hair salon is the ultimate goal.
When you run your own salon, you enjoy much more independence. You can give free rein to your creativity, make more money and do things the way you want.
There has been rapid growth in the salon industry over the past 10 years, especially in the nail salon segment, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that this growth will continue. Savvy, committed entrepreneurs can expand their income far beyond what they could make working in nail technology or hair design as an employee or booth renter. You have two main options to start your own nail salon or hair salon. You can buy a franchise of an established chain or design your own business from the ground up. But make sure you have the career basics from a good beauty school before you begin your journey. On Your Own... Being a cosmetologist is not easy. Everyday you get up and present yourself and your skills. You deal with people who are "happy" "angry" and "CRANKY" That is all part of the job. The reward comes when your client smiles and is happy with what you did. Besides being a teacher I have no idea what other job is that rewarding :) THE END
