For one to be called an expert in his line of work, he needs adequate training to gain the necessary knowledge and skills for the job. Engineers, for examples, have to deal with all those formulas just to get the right calculations, and lawyers have to be expert with the law to be an effective one.

This is also true for cosmetologists. Beauticians, hairstylists, and even estheticians are just some professionals whose works centres on human aesthetics, catering to the necessities of improving good health and wellness.

So what does it take to become a cosmetologist? Aside from a degree, these are the professional skills that you should ideally have:

  1. DEXTERITY – This is not just about painting nails and applying makeup. This is where being ambidextrous –the ability to manipulate both hands comes in handy. Anyway, not matter how science would describe it. As most people are naturally one-sided, either a leftie or a righty, you would need to grasp, and to work proficiently especially with small objects. Moreover, the both arms and all fingers must have flexibility and should possess good endurance as the job will demand hours of working.
  2. ARTICULATION – You cannot be a person who is afraid to speak out his or her ideas. Here, you must have the ability to express your thoughts correctly and clearly to the customer – ideas about a new look or perhaps some suggestions on a hairstyle. Customers would appreciate someone who would keep them from being bored throughout the routine. When it comes with communication, it is not just merely saying anything you want to say, but it is perfectly on how you deal with people no matter how grumpy they could be.
  3. VISION – Now this is where it becomes challenging. In becoming a cosmetologist, you have to have the ability to envision on how your customer would look after you do your thing. That seems to be a bit tough especially if you do extreme makeovers. No matter how bad the hair is, you know that as your duty, you can make it beautiful.

Lastly, what it takes for a cosmetologist is to have a sound mind and a good self-image. If you look and feel good about yourself, that is an advantage.
