With graduation on the horizon, I want to discuss my own experience and give tips on how to survive cosmetology school. I came into this journey very focused and determined. I zeroed in on my studies, as well as perfecting my craft. One thing about me is I stay in my own lane. I don’t get caught up in drama or gossip. I am always professional and polite with everyone I encounter. 

In this environment, it is important to think twice before addressing a situation. You have to pick and choose your battles wisely. Surround yourself with positive energy. Be confident in your skills and abilities because your clients definitely pick up on your vibes. Don't get caught up in complaining because to be honest, no one really wants to hear it. A positive attitude is mandatory! 

I have so much respect for my instructors. Believe it or not, their job is tough and they don’t get enough credit for the time and energy they put in to help mold us into professionals. Show them respect and it will be reciprocated.
