Quotes From Real Aspiring Cosmetologists

  • "At the age of 7 I decided that when I grew up I was going to cosmetology school and going to make a career out of doing what I loved! Cosmetology is perfect for me. It's what I love doing and what I will always love doing. I will make the most of cosmetology school and enjoy every minute of it." - Angel H. (Richland, WA)
  • "My mother didn't get to graduate because she had my three brothers and me, so she had to put her life on hold. Eventually she got her GED but she didn't get to go to college.

I am enrolled in cosmetology school and I start this month." - Simon S. (Alvin, TX)

Although I was happy, they felt so passionately about their career choices. I thought it was exactly that - a career. I didn't believe we were meant to do one particular job and that it would give you the ultimate feeling of self. That is, until I began to really contemplate the issue. I found that if I combined all my passions in life, such as helping others, fashion and beauty, my ultimate career choice would be cosmetology." - Allison B. (High Springs, FL)
