What Is Cosmetology?

Cosmetology is a profession full of creativity and opportunity, but before you make any decisions about becoming a cosmetologist, it’s important that you know exactly what cosmetology is and exactly what the job entails!

The Dictionary Definition

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of cosmetology is, “the cosmetic treatment of the skin, hair, and nails.”

What Cosmetology Means to Us

We believe that cosmetology is much more than the definition above. We witness first-hand the hard work, passion and talent that the world of cosmetology holds. Therefore, we would never reduce the definition of cosmetology down to such simplistic terms.

At Broken Arrow, cosmetology means a number of things. It means opportunity and dedication, but most of all, it means having the freedom to express your creativity in an ever-growing environment.

The endless learning and growth within the realm of cosmetology are one of the best parts of being a cosmetologist! At Broken Arrow Beauty College, we teach things that we believe will benefit our student’s futures like:

I really appreciate you helping me learn more about cosmetology. My friend wants to enroll in a short course. And since she’s fond of make-up, most probably she’ll go to a cosmetology school.


I like what you said about the different skills you will learn at a cosmetology school. One of my sisters is about to enter cosmetology school and is hoping to learn many new skills before she leaves. Thank you for the information about how you would be taught manicuring, pedicuring, hair cutting and styling, as well as business and management skills.


This a interesting article.So many reasons and clarification of all the reasons.It is really very helpful.
