If you’re interested in helping people make improvements to their hair, skin, and nails then you’ve come to the right place. The study of beautification and proper grooming can be important. A degree in cosmetology typically consists of an associate level degree requiring two years of study. The courses teach aspiring cosmetologists cutting and styling hair, how to conduct skin treatments, and perform manicures and pedicures. Most who want to practice cosmetology continue on to receive their license, however, requirements vary state by state. If you’re interested, you should research your eligibility and the requirements for your state prior to beginning a career in cosmetology.
