Get Ready For Beauty School! Everything You Need to Know.

Posted on: March 24th, 2017

Welcome to beauty school!
You are finally here, after years of dreaming and wishing and planning. After hours, if not days, of researching local beauty schools, and going on multiple tours, and sneaking in for shampoos and blowouts in the student salons – you are ready to enroll. You are ready to start this next step in this amazing journey and begin the path toward the career you have chosen.
But what do you do now? And more importantly – what do you need to do to get ready? Don’t worry. While it may seem overwhelming to start – it’s much simpler than you think.
We’ve got your back.


apply for beauty school
If you haven’t already, this is the first step to beginning this journey. Beyond tours and deciding on which school to attend; you have to apply, and part of that is knowing the process towards acceptance.
Each school is different, and sometimes it can be as easy as having a high school diploma or GED. Here at Educators of Beauty our enrollment process is a little bit more involved, with a required interview and simple knowledge test. Knowing this process and the required documentation that goes along with it can make this entire process go smoothly and get your from interested to accepted before our next start date.

Get Your Financials In Line

Bottom line: school costs money. And that cost can vary from school to school, from program to program. Make sure you understand the cost requirement up front and that you are fully aware of any financial aid requirements your school may have. Educators of Beauty participates in the Federal FAFSA program for those who qualify,
and that is a great resource for many students. But sit down with your advisor before hand to get all the facts, and make sure it is the best choice for you.

Be First Day Ready!

Just like you carefully picked out your outfits for every first day from kindergarten to senior year, so should you here. Just make sure you are aware of any dress codes and requirements. You don’t want to get stuck without non-slip shoes on your first day!

Have The Time of Your Life

This is what you want to do. This is your dream. And here you are taking the first steps. It will be hard and there might be days you want to pull your hair out, or days you accidentally dye it pink (not such a bad taboo anymore). And yes, you WILL cut yourself, sometimes more than once in a day. But get ready for the ride of your life! You are one step closer to becoming a style-therapist, a color pro, a scissor queen, a beauty maven.
You are becoming a cosmetologist.

It’s Time to Get Prom Ready

Posted on: March 17th, 2017

Prom season is upon us. Dresses have gone up in store windows, the limos are getting booked, plans are being made and promposals are in full swing.
If you haven’t found yourself plunged into the craziness that is prom preparation, there is still time to dive in head first. If you have been avoiding it altogether, however, we have put together a checklist that will help you get through it all with ease, and create the prom of your dreams. No matter if you are ready to party, or ready to run and hide, prom is here.
Let’s get started.



Plan. Plan. Plan.

Prom is often associated with being the biggest event of your high school career. An event so big you will reminisce about it for years with friends, and embarrass your kids with the regalia in years to come. As with any event of this magnitude, planning is the first step to making it great.
Planning can be as simple as writing down ideas in notebook. If you need something more, however, using a website like Pinterest or WeHeartIt can help you to organize your thoughts visually, and maybe even find some amazing dress designs that you hadn’t even thought of before.


Grab Your Dream Date

Prom date
Even before you have started planning I am sure you have already been lost to daydreams of the perfect prom night, and the perfect person you want to spend it with. No matter who they be, don’t be afraid to take control and ask them – don’t let gender stereotypes and social norms stop you from creating the night you want.


Don Your Best Dress

Beyond planning, beyond your date, the most important thing in your prom planning adventure is what you will be wearing. No matter if it’s a dress or a tux, it’s going to take time to find the perfect one, order it, and even get the alterations done. Make sure you shop early so as to avoid any pitfalls, and risk being dress-less on the big day.


Let’s Coordinate!

Prom Party
Now that you have your dress, tux, date, and/or group, you are ready to dig in and fully plan. Prom is so much more that just the clothes after all, and this is when the fine details begin to fall into place. Get together with your prom party and start to plan out your dream evening, from limos to that new sushi place you’ve been eyeing for months. Don’t forget hair and make-up appointment either – it’s all important! Plus, you can hit some of the local schools for an appointment in the student salon, save some money and still look your best.

Now is the time to get it all together, and don’t forget to make your reservations!


Prep and Play!

The day is finally here, and all that is left is the finer details. Make your perfect prom into the perfect weekend and invite your girls over for pizza and facials. Just don’t stay up too late, you need your beauty sleep after all.

Pack the Essentials

Before you head out the door grab the clutch you bought to perfectly match your dress and fill with everything you will need. From safety pins to that strap that just won’t stay put, blotting papers, and bobby pins for stray hairs, you don’t want to be caught without. If you aren’t sure what to put in your emergency kit, check out our checklist below.


You’ve made it.

You are ready for prom. Everything is in place, and the perfect night is ready to be had. Whether you started out as a hot mess, or an excited participant, this is sure to be the night of your life.

Just for you, we have made a checklist to help you get through this hectic time!
