Hair has been a center of attention since people first began to
care about their appearance. Although styles change from year
to year, the cosmetologist's task remains the same - to help people
who are also called beauty operators, hairstylists or beauticians,
shampoo, cut, and style hair, and advise patrons on how to care
for their hair. Cosmetologists may give manicures, scalp and facial
treatments, provide makeup analysis for women, and clean and style
wigs and hairpieces.
cosmetologists make appointments and keep records of hair color
formulas and permanent waves used by their regular patrons. They
also keep their work area clean and sanitize their hairdressing
implements. Those who operate their own salons also have managerial
duties which include hiring and supervising workers, keeping records
and ordering supplies.
and Barbers generally work in clean, pleasant surroundings, with
good lighting and comfortable temperatures.
This course in barber-styling is for students who are pursuing
a 1500 hour course in order to obtain a license in barbering.
The course covers basic knowledge and techniques in developing
skills in haircutting, hairstyling, chemical services, as well
as knowledge of tools and techniques unique to the barber profession.
