If so, you may want to consider a career as a beauty professional. The state of Alabama offers three types of licenses in this field of work--cosmetologist, esthetician, and manicurist--and beauty school provides the instruction you need to to land the type of job you can be proud of. Listed below are the class requirements for each discipline.
