Any one out there a cosmetologist? I start school on Jan. 2nd at TSPA in the villages. It's not really what I wanted to do, but my parents are supporting me, so at least I'm not fighting them any more, and I know that I will be able to find a job once I get out so at least I will have the money for what I a want to do. I'm starting to get a little freaked about starting, it's almost a month away, and there is still so much I have to get (clothing mostly)

Ok now that's out, I feel better now.

P.S. I'm gona have to learn to do makeup, and have my nail nice! AHHH I don't have nails (nervous habbit, I've tried to stop, but I keep doing it. I don't even realize I'm chewing on them) AND I can't do makeup. Never was taught, and every time I tried my mom called me horrible names insted of showing me what to do. I'm doomed.

I could care less if my cosmetologist has nice nails or wears makeup... as long as she knows how to style hair! Good luck to you! I am not thrilled with my daughter's career choice but if it doesn't work I guess she can always go back to school. She wants to be an equine chiropractor/massage therapist. She wouldn't get much work here so it will mean leaving our little town but I can not squelch her dreams.

My nails have to be filed, per school code, and I don't have to do my makeup...its other people AHH!

I wanted to be a horse trainer, and that's what I wanted to be since I was 9, but my parents started to argue with me about it for the past 3 year. Telling me I had to go to school. I tried to find schools, but none that I could of afforded or that they aproved of.

I understand that and I am sorry. Though when it actually comes down to it you can go out on your own...get a loan and go to school where you want. I know my daughter is going to have to go out of state for her equine studies. I am sure going to miss her ... and her horse. Yes, she is taking her horse to college :)

I've been in school for cosmetology since August. Its tons of fun!
I'm going to a vocational school, as I'm still in high school (11th grade), so it might be a tad different but I love it personally.

Its my plan for now, I want to work with horses eventually as well (: But until I can pay for it myself, cosmo is my backup!

Oh, and if the teachers are any good they will help you through everything. A lot of the things I can do now I had no idea what they even were when I started, but the teachers and other students are really helpful most of the time. (:

Foxes, does your school encourage tattoos, peircings, and changing hair color/ styles frequently?

Generally everyone there gets exited for the students when they get tattoos/change hair color/piercings ect. I can't say that would be the same everywhere but I find that most people who are in the cosmetology business like that type of stuff. (:

I know my school is like that, but I was wondering if it was the norm. I need a lot to convince my very strict Southern Baptist father that I should get tattoos and peircings. He had a cow over my cousins tats and peircings. Lets just say my dad has an oppinion, and if he doesn't like it, he will shove it in your face.

I know how that is, my parents won't allow it. I color my hair sometimes but they aren't very happy about it.. and when I shaved part of my head.. oh boy. Haha.

I will be getting tats & piercings once I move out though, no way I could do it now.
