5 Things to Consider Before Applying to Beauty School

Enrolling in beauty school is a big decision! It’s a time commitment that could lead toward a future career. Before you make the decision to apply to beauty school at Elevate Salon Institute (ESI), Chubbuck, there are a few important things you need to consider.

Beauty School is a Time Commitment

Just like any other type of education, beauty school is a time commitment. Attending classes, finishing assignments, and taking exams are all a part of the process. Whether you choose full-time or part-time classes, you need to be committed to attending. Missing classes and not completing assignments can set you behind and prevent you from moving forward. Enrolling in beauty school is an investment in yourself and your future! A positive attitude and commitment to your work can be a great way to make the most of your education.

Prerequisites Are Required

To enroll in beauty school in the state of Idaho, you must be at least 16 and a half years old. You must also have a high school diploma or pass the GED exam. If you don’t have these prerequisites, make them a priority so you can get started on your beauty education! You should also schedule a tour of our school, have an admissions interview, and send high school and post-high school transcripts to us before applying.

A Support System is Important

Choosing to continue your education is no small decision. It can be overwhelming, especially if you’re taking classes on the side of another full-time job or have a family to take care of. That’s why you need a good support system. Whether it’s a family member, spouse, or friend, the people around you can be your biggest cheerleaders. When you visit ESI Chubbuck for a tour, bring someone with you! This is a great way to get support from the very beginning. It’s normal to be nervous about starting your education, but if you have a loved one cheering you on it can make things a little easier!
