A new interest? Need advice!

15 12 2010

After these past few weeks of weddings I have come to realize how much I enjoy doing hair and makeup.  So today I fired up the Vaio and searched the schools here in San Antonio.  I emailed 3:


University of Cosmetology arts and sciences

Paul Mitchell San Antonio

Paul Mitchell called me back today.  Their 11 month program consists of school Tuesday through Saturday from 930-5.  They spend 90% of the class on hair, the rest is one makeup, facials, and natural nails.  You’d have to do extra to specialize in those.  Cost: $18, 312, which includes all your supplies, books, and license.  Besides the cost of the school, my other worry is how will I have time to make money while I’m going to school.  I have a tour scheduled for Tuesday, and I’ll find out what time night school is to see if that would be better, or if I should do it at all? 

 I want to do hair, but eventually I’ll want to do more.  Just like what I went to school for now.  I want to do more, but the opportunity is  not there and I’m stuck doing things to get by.  I dont want that to be the case after paying for another education. 

Advice is appreciated.  Any success stories, monetary advice, etc is appreciated.  I guess I really want to hear from those in that career and what they think.

I can speak for myself, and I’m sure many others,that this is such a wonderful career..worth all the work. Paul Mitchell, the school…I wish I had attended that one, but there wasn’t one nearby.I do attend so many of their classes though. extremely motivating.I can’t think of any other career tht I’d rather do.
