Regulate Your Sleep Schedule

It’s much easier to be an amazing student if you’re well rested! Make sure you start sleeping regularly as the school year approaches. If you’re accustomed to late nights and late mornings, you should start adjusting your sleep schedule a few weeks before school starts so you have time to get used to your new schedule. Many beauty school classes start in the morning around 8:30-9am, so you want to be ready to roll on your first day back at school!

Eat Healthy and Regularly

You’ll want to be awake and attentive in your first day of beauty school class so you can remember what you learn. You often spend a lot of time on your feet in the student salon*, so being energized is important! 

Make sure you eat a healthy breakfast and pack healthy foods to have throughout the day. Foods with proteins and complex carbohydrates can give you the energy you need to make it through the day!

*All services provided by students under the supervision of licensed professionals.⁠

Exercise Your Mind

Beauty school is different from traditional schooling in many ways, but there are still classrooms and textbooks like nearly any other school. Make sure you spend time reading and keeping your mind sharp throughout the year so you can jump into your beauty education right away! 

Beauty Kit 

Beauty students often get a kit for their program. The kit can include educational items such as books, electronic devices, and beauty tools. It’s a good idea to pick up your kit before your first day of school so you can get familiar with the items you’ll be using. You can expect to receive a t-shirt, tools, and an apron in our beauty kit. 

If you’re not sure how to get your beauty kit, contact your campus and ask questions!

Dress Smart

It might be time for you to start thinking about your school wardrobe. Many beauty schools have uniforms or aprons that you wear when you’re on the salon floor, but you can start thinking about things like shoes and pants that you want to wear while you’re on the scene. At our school we wear mostly black attire to look presentable and chic. 

When on the salon floor, you can expect to stay on your feet helping guests love their new look! To make it easier on your feet, make sure you have some comfortable flats or low heel shoes. Choose black shoes so you can match the rest of your outfit and provided apron to create a professional appearance!
