Cosmetology vs. Barbering: What to Know (and How Do They Compare?)

Are you undecided on the path for your beauty career? Don’t feel bad. It’s completely normal to feel that way.

Many students struggle with the choice between barber school and cosmetology school. It’s an important choice and we understand you want to make sure you choose the best career for you.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. Let’s take a look at what you need to know about barber license training and cosmetology school. We’ll also take a look at how they compare.

Read on and find out which one is right for you!

A Look at Cosmetology School

Let’s start by taking a deeper look at cosmetology. When you graduate from cosmetology school, you’ll be well-trained in a wide variety of beauty techniques.

The services you can offer won’t be limited to just hair. You’ll also be able to provide skin and facial treatments for your clients.

Think of cosmetology as a broader area of study. Students at cosmetology school receive training on styling hair. They also learn the basics of makeup artistry, esthetician techniques, and how to become a nail technician.

Cosmetologists can also provide more in-depth hair services than simply cutting hair. Receiving a cosmetology license allows you to perform chemical services. Some of these include coloring hair, chemical straightening, and perms.

These chemical treatments are useful if you want to focus on styling women’s hair.

A Look at Barber School

In contrast, barbering refers to the treatment of men’s hair. Graduates of barber school are trained on how to style men’s hair and also provide beard grooming services. These can include beard trimming, styling, and shaving.

The main difference between cosmetology and barber license training is that barbering’s focus is strictly on hair. Cosmetology is more general and provides training in the areas besides styling hair that we mentioned above.

Are Both Licenses Necessary?

Many students wonder if it’s necessary to get both a cosmetology and barbering license. The short answer is: it depends.

You need to ask yourself what type of services you want to offer. You’ll also want to ask yourself how many services you want to offer.

Some students, when they graduate, choose to be generalists. They open salons or spas that offer a wide range of services. Many will brand their salons as unisex so they can serve both men and women.

Others choose to provide more “niche” services. These students may choose to open a “men’s only” barbershop or women’s only cosmetology spa. 

If you want to attempt to bring in more customers or get more creative with your services, you may want to consider pursuing a double license.

The Beauty Breakdown

There you have it! The final, tell-all breakdown on what separates barbering and cosmetology. Both disciplines indeed have a lot of overlap. But they are both separate disciplines within the beauty industry.

Whichever road you choose will open you up to a large number of clients and a truly rewarding career. There’s no need to feel like you’re missing out if you lack one license or the other.

Healthcare Workers Changing Careers to Come into the Beauty Industry

Wellness Careers: Why Healthcare Workers are Transitioning into the Beauty Industry

COVID-19 has changed the way people work in more ways than one. Not only are companies gravitating more toward remote work, but employees are considering changing careers as well.

People with a healthcare career are feeling the desire to change more than anyone during these tough times. In fact, 4.3 million people have walked away from their job rather than finding their dream careers.

Vaccine mandates, overburdened hospitals, and other COVID protocols are making it tough for first-responders to do their job.

When healthcare workers get the desire to switch careers, many turn to the beauty industry. Today, we’re going to talk about why that is.

We’ll go into detail about why healthcare workers are switching careers and what makes them choose the beauty industry.

Why Leave A Healthcare Career?

Having a healthcare career is no easy job. And that’s even before the COVID-19 pandemic. Nurses and other medical staff are dealing with the stress of medical emergencies, working long shifts, and having to be on their feet all day.

Many medical professionals are leaving the industry for good. In addition to the stress mentioned above, there are several other factors that are causing nurses and doctors to turn to other fields of employment.

One main reason for looking elsewhere is burnout. Nursing takes a good deal of compassion and the ability to work in a high-stress environment. Many people say it takes “a certain type of person” to be a nurse. 

But a lot of these medical professionals are getting emotionally spent. They just don’t “feel it” anymore. The drive they once had to help others is fading away.

On top of burnout, medical professionals also face a certain amount of boredom. They may feel as though they’re performing the same tasks day in and day out.

Sure, there are other paths you can pursue within the medical field. But lately, when medical professionals look at what their career would look like long term, they decide to go in another direction entirely.

Changing Careers To The Beauty Industry

One of the most popular places for nurses and other medical professionals to land is the beauty industry. Believe it or not, working in the beauty industry has some of the same key elements that a career in the medical field would have.

Business owners in the beauty industry have the ability to help others, be creative, and interact with people all day long. And, depending on your area of focus,  you could get a position in the beauty field that’s closely related to cosmetic medical procedures.

You’ll also find an abundance of opportunities, a flexible schedule, and reasonably-priced training in the beauty industry. Also, many beauticians that come from other industries see the industry as another way to use their creativity.

Many people pursue a career in beauty and wellness and never look back.

Not So Different

Healthcare workers changing careers from the medical field to the beauty industry may seem like night and day. The truth is, they’re not as different as you might think.

Medical professionals can transition to something just as rewarding with much less stress. That seems like a win-win to us!

If you’re looking to get started down the path to being a beauty industry professional, contact TSPA Delray Beach today. We’ll show you everything we have to offer and help you see why switching careers may be the right move for you.

How to Interview a Beauty School: 7 Questions You Should Ask

Your Future is Worth A Great Tour!

Interviews are a two-way street! It’s an important fact to remember when you’re looking at potential beauty schools and thinking about taking campus tours.

Pursuing your dream of applying to beauty school is an amazing journey. It’s an exciting time, and you should enjoy the ride. 

However, you mustn’t get caught up in the wave. We know a lot is riding on your beauty school interviews and beauty school tours, but don’t lose sight of the fact that these schools have to be a fit for you, too. It’s not just about whether or not you’re a fit for them.

In this article, we’re going to cover seven questions you should be asking when interviewing a beauty school.

Asking these questions will help you to determine if the school is the right fit for you, and it may even help you increase the acceptance rate of your applications.

Read on to learn an arsenal of tips for applying to beauty school.

1. Can You Tell Me More?

This is the first, and most obvious question. It’s easy to get silent and nervous when you’re sitting in an important beauty school interview.

Don’t just go through the motions, answer their questions, and then leave. Your interview should be a dialogue, not an interrogation.

Asking this question is one of the easiest ways to get your interviewer talking. Ask them to tell you more about the school. Ask how many teachers they have on staff. Ask the size of the total student body. 

What is the average class size? It’s also important to know the ratio of students to teachers, but asking the class size will get you this information.

Also, you’ll want to research if there have been any complaints filed against the school with the State Cosmetology Board or local trade organizations.

You’ll also want to ask about the school’s safety. If you’re attending classes at night, this is especially important. Student parking, housing (if you’re attending school out-of-state), and other logistical questions are important to ask as well.

2. Are You Accredited?

Making sure a school is accredited, and researching when they last updated their accreditation requirements is important for a few reasons.

First, you don’t want to be attending some second-rate beauty school that ends up being a scam. You’ll end up wasting a lot of money, and be no further along toward your dream career.

Secondly, you want to make sure their accreditation is up-to-date. Most people think schools become accredited once and that’s it.

This isn’t the case at all. A school with a good reputation should be taking the steps to keep its accreditation current. A school should be re-evaluated every six years to keep its standards current. So, ask when the school was last evaluated.

3. What Is Your Placement Rate?

This is probably the most important statistic a school can give you. 

Why does anyone go to college or get a certification? To get the job they want, right?

Well, that’s exactly what the placement rate will tell you. It’s the representation of how many students are getting placed into jobs in their chosen field upon graduation.

We can’t stress this stat enough. It may be the biggest contributing factor in ensuring you a successful future, and yet, so many aspiring beauty school students aren’t asking about it.

Placement rate. Don’t forget about it!

4. Hands-on Experience?

One of the things you don’t learn in high school, that you’ll find out in the real world, is you want to learn from people that have already done what you’d like to do. This is no different in the beauty school world.

If you want to go into a certain niche of cosmetology or esthetics or specialize in a certain treatment, why would you learn from someone who has no idea how to do it?

You wouldn’t. So make sure the school you go to has teachers with hands-on experience in the area you want to specialize in.

There’s no teacher like real-world experience.

5. What Does Your School Cost?

The cost of attending a cosmetology program depends on which school you attend. However, the average cost is anywhere from $8,000 to $18,000. That cost is to complete a full program that can be 10-18 months long.

Don’t be afraid to ask your interviewer to explain the cost of attendance to you. Especially if it is higher or lower than most of the other schools you’re researching.

Also, it’s important to note that cheaper isn’t always better. “You get what you pay for” is a life rule that’s true more often than not. Sure, you may pay more up-front, but your results will be better in the long run.

There are also scholarships and financial aid available for cosmetology programs throughout the country. The amount of aid varies, and the program you attend has to be accredited, but there is help available.

This means your dream cosmetology program may be more accessible than you think.

6. Will I Get to Work With Real Clients?

Just like there’s no substitute for hands-on experience when it comes to your teachers, there’s also no substitute for it when it comes to sharpening your own skills.

Many beauty programs will offer mannequins to practice on when you’re first starting. While they are a great practice ground for learning the basics, eventually you are going to want to hone your skills on real, live, in-the-flesh clients.

7. Can You Tell Me About the Curriculum?

You’re going to be spending the majority of your time, over the next ten to eighteen months, learning the curriculum this school has for you. You have every right to ask the person interviewing you to explain what you are going to be learning, and how it’s going to be taught.

Most cosmetology programs with good reputations do a great job of this. In fact, they will have something available for you to read outlining their curriculum and your path through the program from Day 1 up until graduation.

Even if they do provide you with something like that, it’s still in your best interest to ask deeper questions about what’s going to be covered and how it’s going to be taught.

How Far Do You Go?

One of the first things you’ll want to ask is “how does your curriculum go beyond the State requirements?” Yes, there are minimum requirements needed to practice in every State. But you want a program that is going to prepare you beyond that.

The program you choose should be keeping up with the latest trends and developments in the beauty industry. Our staff at TSPA does a great job of that.

You will not only learn what’s necessary to pass your State exam, but you will learn the newest techniques and trends to put you lightyears ahead of other graduates in your field.

What Is the Structure?

The other important question you’ll want to ask is “how is the curriculum structured?” Cosmetology programs are typically structured one of two ways. The curriculum is either modular or foundational.

With a modular curriculum, there is no exact “starting point” or “beginning”. Whenever you enroll, you start to learn with whatever is being taught that week.

In this type of structure, students are also constantly moving in and out of the classroom. New students are enrolling and older students are moving out of the classroom environment.

The foundational method allows all students to start with the same information and build from there. Instructors teach basic skills until students master them and establish a solid foundation.

At that point, students start to build more complex skills on top of the base of fundamentals that is already there. With a foundational curriculum, students learn the necessary steps of a procedure from start to finish and they also develop a sense of community.

They go from class to class, skill to skill, with the same group of students. This helps students build lasting friendships, and connections within the industry when they graduate.

Bonus Question for Your Campus Tours

We feel like we gave you seven solid questions to get to the bottom of how each beauty school measures up. But, we’re feeling generous so we have a bonus question for you.

What’s the Word on the Street?

Accreditation, outlining the curriculum, and telling you the scope of hands-on experience you can expect are all well and good, but what are people saying?

You want to see what other salons and spas are saying about the performance of school alumni. Can graduates from this school hang in the real world?

Do they have all the necessary skills? Do they know all the necessary treatment procedures? Are there things this school’s graduates are lacking?

You may not be able to get a straight answer to this question directly from your interviewer. That’s fine. Call around to local spas and salons on your own and see what’s what. 

Word of mouth will quickly tell you the full story.

Out-riddle the Riddler

Now you have some real firepower to use during your beauty school interviews or campus tours. Remember, they need to work for you as much as you need to work for them. Don’t get intimidated, and don’t be afraid to ask them to show their worth.

We know what we’ve got at TSPA, and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have. We welcome you to put us to the test!

If you have any more questions about our programs or want help getting started with the enrollment process, give us a call or visit us online today.

Wondering What To Ask At Your TSPA Delray Beach Beauty School Tour? We have 7 Questions You Should Be Asking That Will Put You In The Driver's Seat During Your Next School Interview!

Hair Goals: Importance of a Hair Consult

One of the first things you need to learn as a hairstylist is how to conduct a great hair consultation.

When a client comes for a cosmetology salon visit, the first fifteen minutes are for getting to know them and understanding as much as possible about their hair and their goals.

Below we’ve outlined several types of questions to ask to get to know your client. You’ll be able to build rapport and encourage them along the way with these helpful questions!

The Importance of Getting to Know Your Client

When you have a beauty consult with a new client, you can learn their hair expectations. You’ll find out what the client likes about their hair and what they don’t like. Frame it in the form of a casual question, like this:

  • What’s your favorite thing about your hair?
  • What are your hair goals?
  • If you could change one thing about your hair, what would it be?

Through no-pressure questions like these, you’ll learn vital information about your client and their needs. Being friendly and approachable is the best way to ensure a good consult.

Without an informative beauty consultation, you won’t be able to prescribe the right products or effectively cut, color, and style their hair. If you want satisfied clients, you have to get to know them first. It’s the only way you’ll be successful.

What Does Beauty Consultant Mean?

As a beauty consultant, you’re on a mission. You need to put your clients at ease and encourage them when they feel vulnerable in their hair journey. You’re like a coach, helping them achieve their goals.

During your beauty consultation, you’ll ask questions like:

  • How do you like to wear your hair?
  • How do you part it?
  • What products do you like to use?
  • Do you spend a lot of time in chlorine or in the sun?

Keep in mind you can meet with your clients online via Zoom if they’re more comfortable. Virtual consultations aren’t just for Covid times.

They usually only take about 15 minutes. Because it’s so short, a virtual consultation is a great way to set up for an in-person appointment. You can meet with your clients at home before they make the trip to the salon.

Questions to Ask at a Hair Consultation

Asking the questions above can help you get started with your consultation. Here are some more hair consultation questions to ask:

  • When was the last time you got your hair colored?
  • How often and what type of products do you use?
  • Do you use heat on your hair?
  • Do you have any skin sensitivities?

Once you know the answers to these questions, you can prescribe products that can help your client. Remember you’re not a salesperson. You’re actually holding the answer to a lot of their hair woes, and you’re giving them the opportunity to solve them.

Taking the Time

Having an effective consultation means taking the time to understand your client and encourage them. You’ll conduct your hair consultation and then be able to provide for their needs and prescribe the right products.

The Ultimate Guide to Pell Grants for Cosmetology School: What to Know

Traditional 4-year college isn’t for everyone. More and more students are choosing to pursue jobs in the beauty industry.

But, even jobs in the beauty industry require school. Cosmetology school, to be exact.

You may be thinking, since it’s a beauty program, that you have to pay 100% of the cost yourself. 

Well, before you let your hopes and dreams give way to disappointment and despair, let’s talk about ways you can get money for your beauty education.

There are several financing options and types of grants available for students who qualify, including Pell grants for cosmetology school, and we’ll be discussing them below.

Let’s get to it!

Trade Organizations

One place you may want to consider looking for grants and scholarships is one of the many beauty trade organizations.

Barbers, stylists, estheticians, etc. all have State and Federal organizations for their specific industry. Which organization you contact will depend on your chosen career path.

It’s a great place to start your search because all of these organizations have an interest in getting aspiring beauty students the education they need. By helping the newest class of hairstylists, estheticians, barbers, etc. graduate, these organizations are directly helping keep their industry alive.

Pell Grants for Cosmetology School

The other, more obvious, source of money for your schooling would be State and Federal government grants and scholarships.

Many students receive pell grants to receive a traditional 4-year Bachelor’s degree. What you may not know, however, is that there are also pell grants for cosmetology school.

Pell grants help low-income students cover the cost of their education. There are minimum income requirements that students need to meet to qualify, but that is the only requirement.

Pell grant eligibility is available to all students heading off to college, as long as they meet the income requirements and are attending an accredited cosmetology or beauty school.

How Much Will I Receive?

Great question! It’s dependent upon the individual applicant, as well as a few other variables.

One of those variables is your enrollment status. The amount awarded to you will depend on whether you are attending school part-time or full-time.

Your grant amount will also depend on the total cost of enrollment. Students who meet the income requirements, but are attending more expensive schools, may need more assistance than others.

Generally, the maximum amount students receive from a Pell grant is $5,500.

Other Options

In addition to Pell grants, there are other financing options you can explore to cover the cost of your education.

Many states offer their own State-specific scholarship programs for cosmetology and beauty schools. These are meant to supplement Federal programs like the Pell grant.

Check with your state to see what they can offer you.

You can also receive financial assistance from your school of choice. Certain beauty schools have their own in-house financial aid departments to help students attend.

These schools are typically larger schools with many locations throughout the country, like TSPA

Making The Grade

If a career in the beauty industry is your dream come true, there’s hope for you yet, Cinderella! Pell grants for cosmetology school may be just the thing to make your dreams a reality.

We at The Salon Professional Academy in Delray Beach (TSPA) are here to help! If you have any questions about your application, or how to go about getting financial aid, don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are looking forward to seeing you live out your dreams with us, and can’t wait to meet you!

How Much Does Cosmetology School Cost?

Your ‘Help’ Guide to Cosmetology School Tuition 

Cosmetology is a great industry, employing thousands in salons, spas, and movie sets. If this interests you, you may want to consider a career in cosmetology.

But what does cosmetology school cost? This concise guide will give you all the details you need to know about how to pick a school and pay for your education.

How to Pick a School

Knowing how to choose a cosmetology school is half the battle. What should you look for? 

For one, you want to make sure you pick a school that you can easily travel to. Look for a program with courses on hairdressing, styling, makeup, and skincare.

Then, make sure you’re choosing an accredited school. You want the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) to recognize your education. That way, you can apply for your license after you complete your coursework. 

Cosmetology School Cost

You can expect to pay between $15,000 and $20,000 for cosmetology school. These costs cover application fees, tuition, kit, supplies, and textbooks. 

That may sound like a lot of money. But these programs are often far more affordable than traditional four-year degrees.  

Now let’s look at how you can fund your dream.

Paying For Cosmetology School

If you’re concerned about the price tag of a cosmetics education, don’t worry! You have several options to offset beauty school costs. Consider the ones below as you plan how you’re going to pay for your program.

Help From Family

You may be able to get financial help from your family. Consider telling them about your career goals. If they’re able to help you, that’s a great way to lower the cost of getting your diploma.

Financial Aid

Federal financial aid sources like FAFSA are another great resource. Most often, these are loans that you can use during school. Once you graduate, you’ll have a grace period to repay them before interest starts to accrue.

Loans are a big help, but remember that you may have to spend years repaying them afterward. 

GI Bill 

If you served in the military, you may be eligible for tuition help through the GI Bill. The GI Bill helps veterans afford their education after their service is complete.

Look into whether you can apply for the GI Bill and use the money for cosmetology school. 

Scholarships

Scholarships are a great way to offset the cost of beauty school. The AACS offers scholarships each year, as do independent foundations. Scholarships may range from full tuition coverage to smaller awards of $250 or so.

When it comes to paying for your education, every little bit will help. So apply to every scholarship you can, even if the award is small. 

Fund Your Education

Cosmetology school cost doesn’t have to outweigh its benefit. With a little research and determination, you’ll be able to pay for your education.

Growth of the Beauty Industry

When we talk about the beauty industry, we don’t exclusively mean salons and in-person businesses. Those places will remain important for years to come. But we have to consider how technology contributes to the current beauty landscape.

Beauty entrepreneurs and educators like Huda Kattan are worth millions of dollars. Why? Because she could leverage her blogs and industry knowledge to reach a wide audience.

All beauticians should know how cosmetology and technology go together. This is why the beauty industry is taking off and why education is so crucial.

What Would I Learn At Beauty Schools?

But what specifically would you learn in contemporary beauty schools?

For starters, beauty technology is becoming more efficient than ever. Consumers want the best products for their hair, skin, and other cosmetics.

Beauty schools are instrumental in teaching you how to master those skills and giving you insights into social media and other aspects of digital marketing.

There’s a reason why Instagram and TikTok influencers are helping drive the beauty market. Leveraging a digital audience is becoming a must in today’s beauty landscape.

You also have to learn about virtual consultations, something that’s becoming important post-pandemic. You might even get to learn about how AR and artificial intelligence affects beauty products.

It all comes down to what your beauty school’s offering. Most have robust sets of classes that’ll help you stay ahead of the competition.

Why Education in the Beauty Industry is Crucial

So what are the benefits of getting more education in the beauty industry?

For those who are already experienced in cosmetology or hairstyling. You can enter the market ahead of other professionals because you get expert advice from the best teachers out there.

Beauty schools also provide key insights into technology and digital marketing. It’s no secret that that’s become so crucial in today’s beauty landscape. Knowing how to market yourself is an indispensable skill.

These skills also help you keep up with the latest trends. The things you learn in beauty school are generally scalable regardless of whether you own your own salon or are running an online store.

3. Cosmetology School: Level Up

Cosmetology students have levels 1 – 4. Our curriculum has been co-developed with Redken, and we’re constantly updating it with ongoing collaboration. Push yourself to jump levels during school to give yourself the best opportunity to up your future right after graduation!

We celebrate achievements at TSPA! When you reach a milestone or have a big win, we are excited to share your joy. When you level up in our curriculum, that’s a huge deal and we’re thrilled for all our students who meet this goal.

4. Booking and Prescribing Products

Practice makes perfect. Booking is something you might feel intimidated by right now, but school is where you shake your fears off. Ask guests, family, friends and even strangers for bookings!

Let’s be clear: you’re not selling products. You’re prescribing products, which means you’re providing a solution to someone’s very real need.

Get out there on that student salon floor and learn how to bend and warp all of your fears. You’ll find your voice to success when it comes to prescribing.
