I figured the Model Mayhem community would have great ideas for a bright future ahead of me! Can anyone give me good suggestions on starting the path on becoming a Cosmetology instructor and one day own my own school!?
I was just curious if I should get a master's of education degree since I have my bachelors in sociology and I'm just at a crossroads. I haven't started cosmetology school yet and I think it's my next step towards my dream to eventually get there. I'm dying to get suggestions wink Thanks all!!

I would definitely get a degree in business. Beauty school is business first and for most,you don't need to be a cosmetologist to own a school,you just need hire experience seasoned educators,they need to be license.Most beauty school are not run by stylist,there are 2 state board exam which in the main focus of the school. Basically in order to apply for the test, you must load in 1000-1400 hours in school. Ultimately I spend $12,000 to pass a test.

I kno that the school I attend for cosmetology (The Salon Professional Academy) the qualifications for an instructor is at least 5 years experience in the field as a licensed cosmetologist..but as a owner a business/management degree would be good to have smile
