Cosmetology Classes: EVERYTHING You Need To Know

Cosmetology Classes (lake charles)

Are you curious about cosmetology classes in Louisiana? The Internet can be a huge help! But it can also be overwhelming. To try to help you organize all the information, we’re going to go through “The 5 Ws.” They are Who, What, When, Where, and Why. Diving into each of these topics can equip you with the knowledge to confidently make this next step in your life! 

WHO Will Teach Me? 

At Avery James School of Cosmetology, our instructors are experienced professionals. They’re all licensed and have real salon experience. You’ll get the knowledge, skills, and tricks of the trade only true professionals can share with you. The admissions and office staff is caring and dedicated to your future success. 

WHAT Will I Learn In Cosmetology Classes? 

At Avery James School of Cosmetology, your cosmetology classes are about ALL things beauty. Instead of just focusing on nails, hair, or skin, you’ll get exposure to everything. Not only will this make you a more well-rounded professional—but it could also make you more marketable in the job search! Here’s an example of some of our curriculum:

  • History and Professional Life Skills 
  • Principles of Hairstyling and Haircutting 
  • Chemical Texture Services 
  • Hair Coloring 
  • Skin Structure, Growth & Nutrition 
  • Facials and Facial Makeup 
  • Hair Removal 
  • Nail Tips & Wraps and Nail Enhancements 
  • Braiding & Braid Extensions 
  • Wigs & Hair Additions 

WHEN Can I Start My Career?

To complete a cosmetology program, you’ll need to take 1,500 hours of curriculum. In a full-time program, most students graduate between 13 and 16 months. Which—honestly—is not that much time when you’re talking about the rest of your life! After completing your course, you’ll be prepared to sit for your Louisiana Cosmetology License. That’s a state certification required before you can start working. But don’t worry—you’ll have lessons and courses specifically to help you prepare.  

WHERE Will I Learn? 

As far as we’re located, Avery James School of Cosmetology is in Lake Charles. It’s on Ryan Street right off the 210 loop. But, let’s get specific about the actual environment you’re going to be learning in. 

When you first start your classes, you’ll be learning in a traditional classroom setting. Then, you’ll get time in an actual salon with real clients. Your experienced instructors (who we talked about earlier) will be there to oversee your work and answer questions. It’s the perfect blend of book-learning and practical application to get you ready and confident to start your career! 

WHY Should I Take Cosmetology Classes? 

Everybody’s “why” could be a little different. Some people are drawn to cosmetology for the opportunity to be creative. Others like the idea of helping clients look and feel their best. Or perhaps you want to make your own schedule. Additionally, many students love meeting and interacting with new people every day. 

Whatever your personal motivation, taking cosmetology classes is the first step to a potential career. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, it could also be a smart one. They project cosmetologists’ employment will grow 8 percent between 2018 to 2028. That’s faster than the average for all occupations and equals more than 63,000 new jobs for job seekers! 

HOW Do I Start Cosmetology Classes? 

OK, so “how” obviously doesn’t start with a W. HOWever, it’s often added as a sixth and final question. You can begin your cosmetology journey by contacting our caring admissions counselors. They’re ready to answer all of your questions—no matter what letter they start with! You can also take our Career Readiness Quiz. In just a few minutes, you can identify your goals and personal strengths. We’re here to help you make an informed decision about your future.
