Beauty Schools in California

With its vast array of both natural wonders and Hollywood celebrities, California has a whole lot of beauty going on. That makes it a fitting place to embark on your career as a hair stylist, nail technician, make up artist, esthetician, or other beauty specialist. Look into a quality cosmetology program at a state-licensed beauty school.

Why Should You Attend Beauty School in California?

Beauty schools help students become talented specialists in their chosen field, and teach a wide range of safety procedures and business strategies. The California Board of Cosmetology only grants licenses to applicants who have attended a state-approved school. As in every U.S. state, in California you cannot practice a beauty-related craft without a valid state license.

Most beauty schools offer a choice of specializations, such as hairdressing, hair styling, nail care, and skin care. Required courses may vary depending on your chosen field, and may include hair chemistry, exfoliation, sanitation, nail treatments, facials, and hair removal.
