Beauty and Hair schools

"Give me a fish, you feed me for a day. Teach me how to fish, you feed me for live." Some wise Chinese sage said that, I think.

It is often believed that if one has a skill, one is set for life or rather a better chance at a better life. A colleague of mine is wise enough to pick up a few certifications. She's a certified private secretary, knows how to tailor clothes (and she does tailoring for colleagues), and she's even graduated from a hairdressing school. One talented lady, she is.

Hairdressing is a good trade. In fact, it is a great trade, one that can allow one to be his or her own boss. If you are in the US in the Wichita area, and are considering going into training to become a hairstylist, you might want to check out the Regency Beauty Institute where they have one of the best if not the best hair schools in Wichita.

Available in 19 different states in the U.S., The Regency facilities are fully-equipped and fabulously—designed to mirror upscale salons. Their program is comprehensive so you'll learn everything you need to learn about the beauty business. They offer full-time as well as part-time classes. The school even helps students with placements, so there's no telling where your career in beauty can take you. Indeed, The Regency is one Cosmetology school with a difference.

    Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

  4. Tekkaus, in my next life, I want to be..........

    Nevermind, I still want to be a WOMAN. LOL!

    SK, thank you for sharing your thoughts. You're right that majority of my readers, mostly through organic traffic, comes from the US. I normally try to include some local context in the posts whenever possible. Thank you for bearing with me and for being a very loyal visitor. I appreciate that very much, SK.

  5. Hi Patmos Pete, thank you for sharing your wisdom.

  6. I like that quote!

    Years back I learnt basic hairdressing back in Malaysia just for the summer break. But I was just learning it for the fun. I ended up cutting my husband's hair and I cut my own too (with 2 mirrors). It's really frustrating when I don't get the type of cut I want even after communicating with the hair dresser. :) So, might as well do it myself huh?

  7. Oh yes. I almost fogot. Didn't mean to ignore the question. To answer your qeury; yes, I am working on my own business alone at the moment.

  8. Ai Shiang, that is so cool, learning hairdressing, I mean, and knowing how to at least shear some locks or do some decent trimming. Great skill acquired there. Good for you!

    Going into business sounds exciting. Best wishes and may your business gain from strength to strength!
