Which Hair Stylist Classes Should I Take?

Do you have high school memories of learning formulas or reading Shakespeare? You might have wondered how you’d actually use that knowledge in your real life. Of course, learning for learning’s sake is beneficial in so many ways. However, with the right hair stylist classes, you’ll never have to worry if your courses have a purpose. Each and every course and lesson has a clear connection to your future profession. 

Hair Stylist Classes And Beyond

When you choose a cosmetology program, it’s about more than hair stylist classes. At Avery James School of Cosmetology, you’ll be preparing to become a professional in all aspects of beauty and life. The more cosmetology knowledge you have, the more marketable you’ll be when it’s time for finding a job. Here’s a little peek at the Avery James School of Cosmetology course catalog and how your future classes apply to your new career: 

  • Haircutting: Obviously, hair stylist classes teach you how to cut hair. These courses will cover blunt and graduated haircuts, as well as layers and men’s clipper cuts. With guided practice, you’ll be ready to cut your clients’ hair, no matter their style, gender, or age. 
  • Chemical Texture Services and Hair Coloring: Getting to know the chemistry of hair care is important. Your potential future clients might want straighter hair or curlier hair or hair of a different color. (The grass is always greener on the other side, right? Or maybe, in this case, it’s blonder…) 
  • Skin Structure, Growth, and Nutrition: Avery James School of Cosmetology provides a well-rounded education. To make our students more marketable, we make sure they know about skin as well as hair. You’ll also learn about facials and facial makeup. One beauty expert, coming up! 
  • Nail Care: In the same vein of becoming an all-around beauty expert—let’s talk nails! There always seem to be new innovations in manicures. Tips, wraps, and enhancements, as well as pedicuring and light-cured gels are all covered as part of our cosmetology classes. 
  • Basics of Electricity: This might have taken you by surprise. But think about it—so many hair styling tools require electricity. Hair stylists need to know the basics to safely operate hairdryers, curling irons, and more. 
  • State Board Principles, Practices, and Practical Review: Once you finish your program, you’ll need to pass the Louisiana Board of Cosmetology exam. Before you can start working, you need to get your license. We help you prepare for it! 
  • Professional Life Skills and Preparing for Success: Avery James School of Cosmetology students don’t just know how to succeed in cosmetology. They know how to succeed in life, too! 
  • Infection Control, Practices, and Principles: This might sound a little clinical, but cleanliness is an important part of cosmetology. (And it’s becoming a more and more essential part of all of our lives.) Knowing the right procedures keeps you, your coworkers, and your clients safe and healthy.  
  • And more!
