As an electrology student, you must develop a strong grasp of how permanent hair removal works. It involves understanding the makeup of hair and skin, as well as how electrolysis affects both. Once you understand the theory of electrolysis, it is time to start building your practical skills.

Once licensed, electrologists must renew by March 31st of every odd year. The cost is $82, and increases to $107 if you pay late. To become licensed you will need to complete at least a 450 hour training program and pass the state’s license exam. Wisconsin also requires 1.2 continuing education units every two years, which should have a positive impact in your skillset.

Becoming an electrologist in Wisconsin may have a great impact on your job outlook and earning potential.

Working as an Electrologist

You may work with all types of clients as an electrologist. Some clients come to you with a medical need for hair removal. For example, someone with a hormone imbalance may suffer excessive hair growth as a result. Getting electrolysis can put an end to an embarrassing and long-lasting problem. Others may come to you for cosmetic reasons. In any case, hair removal is often a touchy and sensitive subject, so you should be ready to treat all of your clients with tact and dignity. With each customer, you may have one main appointment and then several follow-up appointments.
