Why Continuing Education is Important to Cosmetologists

Posted on: February 16th, 2017

Educators of Beauty offers Cosmetology CE courses. You might be wondering what that means, and we’re here to tell you! Cosmetology CE courses are relevant to current cosmetologists and cosmetology instructors. If you’ve yet to get your cosmetology license, these courses don’t apply to you. However, we do offer cosmetology courses that can help you get your license. Click the image below to find out more!

Continuing Education is Important Because:

You Should Always Want to Learn

As a beauty professional, you should always be seeking to learn more. In this industry, techniques and trends are constantly changing. If you refuse to learn, you might just get left behind!

It’s the Law

According to the State of Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, continuing education is required to renew your license. This applies to several beauty professions, but we want to remind our cosmetologists and cosmetology instructors of its importance.

It’s Fun!

Learning is fun! Many cosmetologists and educators love creating, innovating, and being completely unique. To stay on the cutting edge, you’ve got to love what you do. Technical skills can only take you so far. Your passion for your craft is what can make you GREAT!

You Want to Be at the Top of Your Game

The more you know! If you can learn new services, you can potentially offer new services to them. That means you could grow your clientele faster than before, and it could potentially mean you can increase your earnings. You can also make yourself more valuable to employers this way.

Many employers like to see potential employees going the extra mile. You can really prove your dedication and love of cosmetology if you go out of your way to learn more.

Where Do I Get a Continuing Education?

Right here at Educators of Beauty! We offer courses at all three of our locations. We are a State Approved Cosmetology CE Sponsor. Our courses are approved by the Illinois Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics and Nail Technology Board.

Our goal is to help cosmetologists and instructors renew their licenses in as little time as possible! Interested in attending our courses? Contact us today!

5 Weird Beauty Hacks That Actually Work

Posted on: February 15th, 2017

Are you looking for ways to cheat the beauty system and hack your way through your routine? Check out these 5 weird hacks that totally work!

1. Craft Glue Manicure

Tired of getting polish all over your fingers? Don’t fret! You don’t have to splurge on salon-quality, peel off paint. Paint craft glue around your cuticles to prevent mistakes. Once it’s dry, you can just peel them off!

2. Loosen Up Your Mascara

If you’ve found yourself in a situation where your mascara is a bit drier than you like, heat up some water in a mug. Let your mascara tube soak for a minute. This will help the product loosen up and allow for easier application.

3. Matte Your Lipstick

Is your favorite lipstick glossy? Are you looking for a more mattified look? Use a 1 ply facial tissue, place it over your closed lips, and use a fluffy brush to add setting powder over the top. This will change your glossed lips into matte lips!

Alternatively, you can tap your setting powder right onto your lips.

4. Curl Your Lashes Faster

Everyone loves fuller, curlier lashes. If you’re looking to curl yours faster with a longer hold, try heating up your lash curler with a blowdryer first. CAUTION: Wait a moment for it to cool down. You don’t want to burn your eyes!



5. Dry Your Nails Quicker

A smudged mani is not one to be had. To dry your polish faster, paint a few thin coats on, and then dunk your hands into a bowl of ice water. The cold can help the lacquer harden.
