What Are The Benefits of Continuing Education in Cosmetology?

There are dozens of careers that require continuing education, such as the medical field, teachers, engineers, electrical technicians, and cosmetology professionals. While it can take months and years to become a medical professional or engineer, the learning and training doesn’t stop. These fields are changing frequently, so it’s important for professionals in their field to stay on top of the latest technology, techniques, and trends. 

If you’re a cosmetologist, here are a few reasons why earning continuing education credits is important.

Renew Your License

In order to renew your cosmetology license in the state of Texas, you must first earn four hours of continuing education credits. The credits need to be completed before your license expires, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to complete any courses, attend lectures, trainings, etc. A license is required in order to continue offering your services, so don’t wait until the last minute.

Learn New Techniques

Learning new skills and techniques is one of the most enjoyable parts of continuing education in cosmetology. If you love working with clients' hair, nails, eyelashes, eyebrows, etc., then learning new techniques is something you should look forward to! With new techniques you can offer your clients something that your competitors may not! 

Learn What the New Trends Are

When you’re busy doing what you love, and with all of the tasks and chores that are required outside of your profession, keeping up with current trends can be challenging. And the last thing you want is for a customer to come into your salon, ask for a new hairstyle or technique, and not know what that is, let alone know how to do it or do it well. With cosmetology continuing education credits, you can be sure that you’re offering clients everything possible.

Fine Tune Existing Skill Sets

Even though you may be practicing what you do every day, there is always something new to learn. Attending a workshop, a tradeshow, or taking a class can give you an opportunity to hear how others do their job. You may learn how to do a certain technique more efficiently or to be more precise. Hearing other people’s perspectives may allow you to think differently about your process and ask yourself how you can improve on what you already know.

Prevent Human Trafficking

What does human trafficking have to do with continuing education? In 2018, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation added human trafficking requirement, which ensures that cosmetologists know how to recognize victims of human trafficking and can offer help. This requirement will allow every cosmetologist to do their part in protecting victims.
