Where to Find Continuing Education
Education Details

In Ohio, continuing education hours are required for cosmetologists, estheticians, hair designers, manicurists, and natural hair stylists. If you're in cosmetology, you can take courses in hair care, nail care, esthetics, relaxation massage, or business. Other beauty professionals can take business courses or classes that are specific to their area of expertise. Hair care and design classes may teach you about new styles and styling techniques. This is especially important if you work with younger clients that want to have the hottest and most modern styles. You may also opt to take continuing education classes that build on your understanding of chemical treatments and procedures. If you take continuing education classes in other areas, you can learn new skills that may allow you to expand your client base. After all, it's convenient for clients if they can get their hair, nails, and massages done all at the same place! Continuing education in Ohio also gives you the opportunity to further your business. If you want to learn more about landing repeat clients, marketing yourself to new clients, or managing a salon, this is your chance.

After Continuing Education

Creating the future you desire is possible with a career in cosmetology, especially if you keep up with continuing education and refuse to rest on your laurels. Making education a priority and listening to what customers value are two ways to find success. Forbes reports on Sally Hershberger, a stylist that is known internationally for her hair styling skills and hair care products. After attending cosmetology school on a whim, she found that she loved hair styling. Years later, she is one of the most well-known names in the industry. In the cosmetology industry, there are several traits that can make you a valuable asset. First, you should be comfortable with people of different ages and backgrounds. You never know who your clients will be, and you need to make them all feel welcome in your styling chair. You should also have an inherent sense of vision and style. Being able to look at a client and figure out how to bring out their best features can make you a very popular hair stylist. Cosmetology offers you plenty of opportunities to enhance the lives of others while taking your own career further. If you're ready to become a cosmetologist in Ohio, the industry is waiting for you!
