State License Requirements
N/A

It’s important to note that the Connecticut Examining Board for Barbers, Hairdressers, and Cosmetologists has some of the most stringent requirements in the country for cosmetologists. This may affect your teaching career, as you must be able to teach to the high standards of the state of Connecticut. To qualify for teacher licensure, you need to complete a cosmetology program of 1,500 hours, pass a cosmetology exam, and then pass a cosmetology teaching exam.

Education Details

Attending a Connecticut cosmetology instructor course may help you develop the skills you need to pass the cosmetology instruction exam with flying colors. You can plan on completing a curriculum that lasts six months to two years, depending on the school. You may tackle a variety of learning goals. You may brush up on cosmetology skills and techniques that you may not use frequently in your career, learn how to prepare students for careers in various beauty settings, and teach communication skills to students from different backgrounds. Your course may also delve into the cosmetology laws of Connecticut, since you’ll likely be responsible for communicating these to your students.

License Renewal Period

Connecticut does not offer a cosmetology instructor license, so you will need to become a licensed hairdresser in the state to be one. When you earn your license, you will have to renew it every 2 years, no later than the last day of the month in which you were born. The cost of renewing your hairdresser license will $100. You will also have to take 10 hours of continuing education courses to maintain licensure. These courses are a good way to stay current in the latest sanitation policies, and trends in the beauty industry.

Instructors at this level teach adults at the post-high school level and prepare them for several job paths. From 2012 to 2022, O*Net anticipates an 8% increase in postsecondary vocational teaching jobs in Connecticut. If you have a good variety of community colleges, technical schools, and beauty colleges near you, you may have a very exciting job outlook. In general, cosmetology teaching jobs in Connecticut tend to have salaries that are in line with national averages. O*Net reports a statewide average salary of $44,200 per year for beauty instructors. As you become more skilled in different areas of instruction and develop your teaching skills, your earning potential may increase accordingly.

Working as a Cosmetology Instructor

When you start working as a cosmetology instructor in CT, your days may be very different than they were when you worked as a cosmetologist. You may work more of a set schedule, as your work hours should center around the hours of your beauty program or school. This may allow you to work more daytime hours, although many beauty schools do offer some evening and weekend classes. In addition to putting in classroom hours, your work may require you to spend time grading, meeting with students, and developing program plans. Community outreach is a crucial part of a cosmetology instructor’s job. You need to get seats in chairs to ensure that your students get the practice they need, and that may mean connecting with area businesses and schools. For example, one beauty school recently gave makeovers to local life skills students. You must master the fine art of constructive criticism; this is what helps your students improve on their skills and become better cosmetologists without getting discouraged or giving up. As your students progress through their education, you may spend more time in the salon, assisting with procedures and offering encouragement.
