How High School Prepares You for Beauty School

When you think of your high school classes, you probably don’t think “man, these have surely prepared me to take on the beauty world!” Right?

Yeah, we thought so. But did you know that several of your classes really did/are preparing you to take the beauty world by storm?

ART

Okay, this one may be a little easier to understand than the others that are listed in this blog… but hear us out, alright?

Art is a creative forum that allows you to express and explore. Same goes for beauty school! You get to experiment with your own style, learn some fundamental basics that help you to implement the best skills on your clients, and you get to use your love for creativity without halt.

In art class, you likely learn the color wheel which helps you to learn how to distinguish what colors complement each other and which colors mix well together. Right?

Well, did you know that those help you to determine what colors will work best with a cool and warm toned skin when applying makeup?

How about which colors to mix together to create the perfect hair color for your client?

See, art class is teaching you valuable skills for beauty school!

BIOLOGY/ANATOMY/CHEMISTRY

Don’t stop reading now… because these courses are a great way for you to learn the anatomy of a human, how to mix formulas for color, and just basic knowledge of how products will react with one another-  which are all a crucial part of beauty school.

How?
—> You learn about bone structure which is important when it comes to the placement of makeup in the esthetics course

Because of your knowledge of these basic necessitates in these courses, you’re prepared to give safe facials and even coloring someones hair.

ENGLISH/SPEECH/ COMMUNICATION COURSES
