Beauty Schools in Alabama

Want to enter into the business of making people look good?

To get started in most beauty-related professions, you should have a thorough education from one of Alabama's accredited cosmetology schools. Whether your goal is to become a hairstylist, barber, nail technician, make up artist, or esthetician, you can jump-start your career by attending a comprehensive beauty school training program.

Why Should You Attend Beauty School in Alabama?

For beauty professionals in most U.S. states, formal education is a must because you may need a license before practicing your craft. The first step toward licensing is attending a state-approved beauty school or training program. Alabama is a slight exception because the Alabama Board of Cosmetology may allows hands-on training through an apprenticeship program as a substitute for formal study. However, you may need twice the number of hours of experience if you choose to go that route.

Cosmetology schools focus on topics like hair chemistry, skin care, sanitation, manicures and pedicures, and facials. Some beauty schools offer classes on how to run a business. The duration of the program may depends on the specialization you choose; hair stylist training tends to take the most time.
