California

You know as well as anyone that times change – and so do style trends. Take a look at the hair styles that were popular 10 years ago, five years ago, or even one year ago! Styles and trends change so quickly that you, as a beauty professional, must work hard to keep your skills and techniques up-to-date. To build on your education each year, look into continuing education in California.

BeautySchoolsDirectory.com maintains relationships with beauty schools across the United States to help prospective and future beauticians pursue training. If you need to brush up on your skills, compare the continuing education programs in your city today. Just use our simple search tools to get started!

Where to Find Continuing Education

A big part of any beauty career is offering high-quality customer service. Continuing education facilities may offer courses that are based on customer service in a salon setting. You may learn how to more effectively understand a customer's needs, ways to retain clients, and skills for building relationships with your clients.

Education Details

Continuing education courses can cover a wide variety of subjects. You may be able to choose the courses that match your interests and your long-term career goals, or your courses may be selected by the education coordinator at your salon. If you're interested in improving your color skills, you may take courses like Contemporary Hair Coloring Techniques and the Evolution of Color. These courses may give you hands-on experience in newly-popular techniques, different coloring chemicals, and tricks that can help you more efficiently use your coloring time. Many continuing education classes center around hair styling techniques and styles, especially since popular styles change on a regular basis. Depending on which salon or beauty school you choose for your continuing education courses, you may be able to take courses that center around men's hair styles, contemporary hair styles for women, and hair styling for different hair textures and lengths.

As you know, it pays to be ahead of the style curve. Clients love it when you add that flair that makes them stand out in a crowd. When you pursue continuing education opportunities, you may enjoy a greater earning potential. Being knowledgeable about the latest trends and technologies in the industry not only makes you more helpful to clients, it can make you more indispensable to employers. According to O*Net, most cosmetologists in California earn between $17,700 and $43,800 per year, with an average salary of $22,900. Dedicating yourself to ongoing education efforts can have a positive effect on your income. Across the state, the demand for educated cosmetology professionals is high. Between 2010 and 2020, O*Net expects the demand for cosmetologists to increase by 19% and create over 1,500 new jobs per year. Though many cosmetologists choose to take advantage of continuing education opportunities through their employers or local schools, it is not required. The California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology does not require cosmetologists to earn any continuing education credits to keep their licenses valid.

After Continuing Education

Even if you are already successful in the beauty industry, attending continuing education courses can significantly change your career. As you attend courses and build on your knowledge base year after year, clients may come to you with requests that they trust you to handle. Not only can this lead to a more packed schedule, it may help you develop deeper relationships with your clients. The truth is, starting a cosmetology career can change your life, not to mention the lives of your clients. Lynelle Lynch, president of a California beauty school, told FOX 44 that "beauty careers make people feel good about themselves inside and out." She notes that it doesn't matter whether the economy is weak or strong; people still want to look their best and enjoy the way they look. It's important to take this responsibility seriously and make sure that you develop the right traits and skills for a career in cosmetology. You must be attentive and have a great eye for detail. Customers may come to you with specific requests, pictures, or style ideas, and it's your job to make those requests work with their hair type. Above all, you should love working with people! You'll likely come across many different types of people in the course of your career. Being able to interact positively and professionally with every client can help you get that much more out of your career.
