Monday, August 12, 2019

Continuing education is an important part of many careers. When it comes to the beauty industry, continuing education is not just important - it’s absolutely essential. Especially when you consider the constantly changing styles, trends, and techniques in the beauty industry. Although many states require continuing education for beauty professionals, there are a lot more reasons why being a beauty professional and a fan of life-long learning go hand-in-hand.

Keep your skills sharp and your beauty game strong

 Just like any industry, the beauty industry can be fiercely competitive. You’re going to want to keep improving your skills in order to keep up with the professionals around you.

More skills = more clients

 The more techniques and skills you learn, the more you have to offer your clients! After all, being the go-to for the latest technique starts with learning the latest techniques. The more you know, the more you grow!

Become a boss

Literally. When you keep expanding your education, being your own boss is totally doable! Starting your own shop is going to be a lot easier if you make continuing your beauty education a life-long commitment.

Licensing requirements

Each state has their own licensing requirements. Licensed cosmetologists and full specialists in Florida are required to complete 16 hours of continuing education every two years. The hours are broken down into eight different categories and cover everything from sanitation and sterilization to board approved elective courses.
