The extra experience will give you an edge when you interview with a salon or beauty department. Signing up for extra classes shows how important knowledge is to you. Almost every career in the beauty industry will want you to continue learning, so showing that education is important to you will help you nab a great job. Our students have the opportunity to take extra waxing classes, makeup classes and hair classes.
