Your Next Step: Cosmetology School Instead of Traditional College
Education is valuable, it can open the doors to higher paying, more satisfying careers. However, education doesn’t necessarily mean “college”. After all, traditional colleges aren’t for everyone and that’s okay! Just because you don’t thrive in that learning environment doesn’t mean there isn’t another educational experience that you’ll love.
Are you creative? Do you excel in settings where you have the freedom to learn at your own pace?
If you have found yourself weighing the pros and cons of a traditional college experience then it might be time to consider going to cosmetology school instead! Here’s why:
Return On Investment
You don’t have to be an economic genius to know that a college education comes with a hefty (and for many, an insurmountable) price tag attached. With most college careers lasting at least four years, that’s a lot of time for all those student debt numbers to grow. Not to mention all the textbooks and additional fees that come with traditional college. It’s hard to know exactly how much you’ll be forced to end up paying when starting college.
Students who enroll in our basic cosmetology program can get a clear number of how much an education with us will cost. With many people relying on beauty professionals, you may have the opportunity to immediately benefit from this investment!
Take Classes Only About Your Field of Study
Have you always dreaded taking general classes that you’re not interested in at all? Another disadvantage to traditional college is that the beginning of your education will partially be spent studying subjects that you aren’t passionate about. That’s not the case for cosmetology school! We think it’s important that students can devote all their time to learning what they love. That’s why our program dives right into exciting cosmetology lessons in hairstyling, facials, hair color tints, and so much more!
Get Started Faster
Not taking classes you don’t need means you can focus on the skills that matter most and could enter your field faster. Depending on the schedule, you could be entering the beauty world in less than a year though a cosmetology education with us!
Learn the Way that Works for You
Did you really spend 12 years in a classroom waiting to move forward, only to spend another four doing exactly the same thing? We didn’t think so! Of course, not every college or university is the same but for the most part the learning and teaching methods are standard.
If you’re a dynamic learner, meaning that you learn in a variety of ways, then cosmetology school could be a great fit for you!
There is class time with lectures and instruction, but there is also hands-on learning opportunity every step of the way. Whether it is in class or on the clinic floor working with real clients.
Get Needed Experience While You Learn
At Broken Arrow Beauty College, the first eight weeks of class are spent learning theory and preparing for time on the salon floor. That is why cosmetology is so exciting. You have the chance to learn what you love in the safety of the school, with supervision and guidance from your instructors. You certainly won’t find that at a traditional college.
Not only do our students receive a thorough cosmetology education, but they also learn the basics of business and how to succeed as an entrepreneur in the field. We have been a proud member of the Pivot Point International family of schools since 1985, in fact we were the first school in eastern Oklahoma to partner with Pivot Point.
