1. Enroll in Health and Style Institute’s Cosmetology Program
The first step to becoming a cosmetology instructor is to complete Health and Style Institute’s Cosmetology Program. While you must attend a cosmetology program to receive your certification, a prestigious cosmetology program is important. The cosmetology program at Health and Style Institute consists of extensive instruction and practical experience in hair cutting, hair coloring, permanent waving, customer service, personal appearance and hygiene, personal motivation and development, retail skills, business ethics and more. Rather than concentrating only on the basic skills needed to pass the state board licensing exam, Health and Style Institute provides a well-rounded lifestyle education.
2. Attain your Cosmetology Certification
All states have different cosmetology certification requirements. The cosmetology state board exam is the test you will have to take to obtain your cosmetology license. The majority, if not all, states require that you pass an exam before you can obtain your license. Health and Style Institute prepares you with the knowledge and skills to pass the state board exam.
3. Gain Experience
After obtaining your cosmetology certification, next is to gain experience. It’s hard to allow a new cosmetologist to teach another new student. Real-life experience is going to play a crucial role in your career to becoming a cosmetology instructor. Working in a salon for a few years can help you gain the experience needed for an instructor position.
4. Obtain Teacher Training Certification from Health and Style Institute
Once you have the experience, you’ll need to obtain instructor training. Health and Style’s Teacher Training program prepares students with all the fundamentals of providing cosmetology instruction in licensed public or private cosmetology schools. Instructional methods used are hands-on projects, step-by-step methods, group activity coordination and much more. Upon successful completion of this program, you will be awarded a Teacher Training certificate and will be prepared to take the state licensure exam.
5. Apply for a job as a Cosmetology Instructor
At last, all the hard work is about to pay off! When applying for an instructor position they will look at your certifications, your experience as a cosmetologist and the skills you have acquired.
