cosmetology courses in the United States focus primarily on hairstyling, but also train their students as general beauticians versed in manicures, facials, etc. In a state-licensed beauty school, a certificate course in general cosmetology typically takes approximately one year to complete. Specialized, non- hairstyling courses such as manicure, facials, or makeup art are usually of shorter duration, lasting anywhere from two weeks to six months, although the most prestigious and exclusive beauty schools may offer much longer courses.
Cosmetologists care for people's hair, skin, and nails They are also called beauty operators, hairdressers, or beauticians They give scalp treatments, massages, and facials They often recommend and sell a variety of grooming products, such as cosmetics or hairbrushes
Formal training and education is required for this career. Cosmetologists are required to be licensed and in order for a student to qualify for licensure, he or she must attend cosmetology. These classes are available at various community colleges, technical schools and cosmetology schools. The length of the programs varies by school, though most last from nine to 24 months.
