Beauty Schools in Washington

Benefits of Beauty Schools

In few months, you may earn an associate's degree as a barber, hair stylist, or cosmetologist. Most cosmetology schools may also offer short training programs if you want to work as a manicurist, pedicurist, esthetician (or asthetician), or makeup artist. Cosmetology schools may prepare you to apply for the required state license necessary to practice in a salon, spa, or your own home. Many also offer job placement services or internship opportunities to give you hands-on practice in addition to your coursework.
