Week 2: Becoming a Professional

by Tiffany Williams | November 8, 2016 | Bookmark +

Cosmetology school is so fun! Not only do you learn how to be an amazing nail technician, you also learn how to be an amazing professional.This week we learned a lot of different techniques. We learned how to do the classic pink and white acrylic nail; because so many people like this nail it's good to know how to do it. We also learned communication, how you should talk to your clients, business skills, and how to remain professional no matter what the situation is. I also did a full set on my practice hand and I learned how to do aquarium nails! It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I got a little glitter happy and used too much but I'm practicing. Last, we got assigned a business plan project, which is a full-on detailed plan of where your career is going to be and how your salon is going to look. It's not due for a few weeks but I've already started. Cosmetology school takes up a lot of your time but it's worth it!
