Online Beauty School & Online Cosmetology Classes
Jump to Your Question:
No, not currently. All states currently require the majority or all beauty training hours to occur in the classroom, not online. Because there are many skills that require hands-on practice and repeat practical training in order to pass the practical portion of the board exams, much of cosmetology school must still occur on campus. More schools these days are moving toward offering portions of their training online, particularly theory and book work portions that don't require hands-on work. We at Beauty Schools Directory believe that some day, online cosmetology school will make up a larger part of the beauty education curriculum as more and more students try to pursue their education from home while also juggling full-time work or family commitments. But we also believe that coming to campus for hands-on lessons will still be a part of cosmetology school. Until then, full online beauty school programs and full online cosmetology school programs are not available.
Yes. The new trend in beauty has been leaning towards cosmetology schools and beauty schools going more online for theory and book learning, but at the moment only some online cosmetology courses and online cosmetology classes are offered for continuing education. That means that students of online beauty classes must already have a beauty license and simply be completing their CEU hours to renew their cosmetology licenses. Whether it's in cosmetology or a more focused industry like nails or skin care, students can further their cosmetology training with beauty schools online with programs for continuing education. Some of the online beauty schools and online cosmetology school programs that are offered are for 12- or 8-credit hours that can expand your knowledge about blood borne pathogens, sanitation, business skills, new techniques and more. So in the meantime, until online cosmetology schools and online beauty schools becomes a reality, get started toward earning your beauty or cosmetology license and request more information from beauty schools in your area.
