When people ask me if I love what I do, I can easily answer them that I do. When I was 19, I walked into a beauty school and signed up for a course. That was the day that my life changed. Before that, I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. I knew that I wasn't going to be happy working as a cashier at the local grocers and that the only way that my future would change is if I did something to change it. This blog is filled with tips that can help you find a beauty school to attend and how to get the most from the courses you take.
There's a question you must ask yourself once you've been accepted to beauty school—what are you going to wear? This is a legitimate question, especially when it comes to footwear. But why are the shoes you wear important?
It's unlikely that you will be required to wear any type of uniform when you're at cosmetology school, and a uniform or dress code will generally only become relevant when you actually start working at a salon. That being said, if your beauty school makes any specific recommendations as to what you need to wear, follow their advice.
When no recommendations are given, it's a matter of wearing shoes that you're comfortable in. But this isn't so straightforward. You might be comfortable in ultra-high stilettos, but this doesn't make them a suitable choice. Many of your classes will take place in a classroom environment, and for this, sure—wear whatever you like. But of course, the practical elements of your training mean you'll be spending a lot of time on your feet.
Because you're going to be standing a lot (and not only standing—you'll be moving back and forth as you work on clients), your footwear is important. Nursing clogs are a great choice if you're unsure. These types of shoes are designed to be lightweight while offering a great deal of shock absorption which reduces stress on your feet and legs.
A shoe that reduces stress on your feet and legs is a good starting point. Your chosen shoe also needs to offer adequate arch support, and not all shoes do. A sports shoe can be ideal. While you're not going to be dribbling a basketball up and down a court, your feet will be given the necessary support to deal with the physical demands of your beauty school training.
When making your choice, don't forget to take a look at the shoe's sole. The shoe must give you sufficient traction, meaning that many types of pumps, formal and dress shoes are unsuitable. Remember that there's a considerable risk of slipping at beauty school (just think of the water and various liquids that will be spilled on the floor), so your shoes should have proper traction.
Choosing the best shoe for beauty school is more important than you might think, and it's really a case of finding something you like the look of, while still choosing a shoe that offers the right amount of support and traction. To learn more tips, contact local beauty schools.Share
