Everyone takes the same curriculum in beauty school, so you’ll want to take classes and join extra curriculars that set you a part. You want to have as much experience possible when you interview at a salon or beauty store, and taking extra classes shows how important knowledge is to you. Almost every career in the beauty industry is going to expect you to continue learning, so showing that education is important to you will help you nab a great job.

Create a Great Resume

Before you get an interview, you’ll need to impress managers and owners with a resume. Your resume should include all your related experience, any commendations you received, your grades and additional certifications. Not sure what yours should look like? Take a look at our resume sample.
