Yes! You can go to cosmetology school without experience. In fact, no one is expecting you to have experience when you walk into the door of our school. At The Salon Professional Academy(TSPA), Rochester, we’ve designed our cosmetology program so that you can learn and gain experience while you are here! Our goal is that students who graduate from our program are prepared and excited to take on a career in the industry after they’ve become licensed.
While you don’t need any experience to enroll in cosmetology school, there are a few things you do need. If you’re looking to get your start at TSPA Rochester, here’s a few things you can get and do to be prepared for our program.
A High School Diploma or Equivalent
In order to enroll in our cosmetology program, and to be eligible to take the state licensure exam, you must have a high school diploma or GED. If you’re worried about your previous education and are unsure of what may or may not qualify, that’s OK! You don’t have to guess. Contact us! We can talk through your concerns and help determine if what you have will be accepted. You can also consult the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology website for info about what is required.
Have a Passion
Passion is one thing that many of the people in the beauty industry have. This field is fueled by creativity and a love for what you do. Many cosmetologists recall that this is something they’ve wanted to do their whole lives! If you’ve always had a love for hair, makeup, and all things beauty, this might be your career path.
TSPA Rochester can help you harness that passion and turn it into a skill set!
Be Ready to Commit
Cosmetology school requires commitment. Time and creativity are two things you’re going to need to give for your education. Your education is your best investment in yourself. If you want a future in the beauty industry, be ready to give it your all and have a blast doing it!
