Beauty School? UPDATE
Well, I think I've decided I'm going to go back to beauty school. I first began cosmetology school right after high school, back in '95. I was there for a few months and ended up being utterly disappointed in the school so I quit. I looked into another school, but, at the time, my heart just wasn't into it anymore. Sucks because I had won a $500 scholarship to the school of my choice for writing a winning essay explaining why I wanted to become a cosmetologist :(

Anyway, given our financial situation, and the economy, I'm pretty much being forced into going back to work, however, I really, REALLY do NOT want a typical retail job...I'm soo done with those. So, I decided I wouldn't mind going back to beauty school.

I've been checking out schools in my area and one in particular sounds great. I've requested more info and someone should be calling me any day now.

The school I'm looking into is called Regency Beauty Institute. Does anyone have any experience with them, or, know anyone who has? Their website is done wonderfully and is full of information and pictures. The school looks fabulous (completely unlike the school I went to in '95), and, they are accredited. I'm really leaning towards this one but would like to hear other experiences if anyone has any!

Thanks!

I went to beauty school though a vo-tech program when I was in High school. But it was pretty much like the one you discribed going to first. But it was free because I took it in highschool, I just had to buy my supplies. Since, I, nor my family, could spare the money for Beauty college, I though this was the best choice.
I cut hair for 15 years before I quit and became a housewife. I've never heard of the school you're leaning toward, but I'm sure it's a good one. Congratulations, and good luck in your career choice.

If the website is anything to go by that school looks great!
I have never trained in it myself but i love make-up-artists and stylists. In things like model based photography it is amazing what having a well trained MUA or stylist to hand can do for a picture.
Well done for making the decision to go back into education. It is never an easy decision, but if it helps out financially and gives you a career and life that you will enjoy then it is well worth it!

I can't say I know much about beauty school (have you seen my avatar...that really IS me... ) but I do have faith that you are such a smart and wonderful woman that you'll make a great choice. The school appears pretty cool from what I can tell. As long as there are no creepy guys who want to get in your pool there, I'd say go for it!

Well, I went for a tour of the school today and it is AWESOME!!! I am so excited about starting! The only thing I really have to decide now is whether I'll start this Sept. or wait until next year when my son starts school. It would be easier to manage when my son starts school, but, we really need the extra money sooner than later. We'll see, hopefully I can work something out!

I hope you can work it out.

I actually went to cosmetology school back about '69 and '70. I went to a community college though so it was very inexpensive. I gave up my license years ago though. Just wasn't for me.

Thank you, I truly hope I can work it out too. After being a stay at home mom for over 6 years now, I've become terrified by the though of having to work outside of the house, however, with this I'm looking SO forward to it. When I quit going to cosmetology school back in '95, it wasn't because I didn't want to go to beauty school anymore it was because the school I went to was awful. The thought of returning to beauty school one day has never left me, I just needed to wait until the right time. I feel that I am now fully prepared and I'm so anxious to start. I really, really hope I can work it out so I can start in Sept!
