How are we different than other beauty schools and cosmetology schools in the Salem – Portland area?
This is a great question, where you start in your search and and where you end up going to beauty school often times, is a completely different place! In Salem, Oregon for instance, there are quite a few choices. Phagans School of Beauty and the College of Hair Design Careers out in the north part of town. Tangled Ends Hair Academy Keizer, Oregon and The Academy of Hair Design Inc is in Downtown Salem – in our neck of the woods. There is also the Academy Of Cosmetology Careers in Albany, Oregon.
Choices, choices, choices, what’s a potential student to do?
And we haven’t even addressed the other geographic areas for Beauty, Cosmetology Schools from Corvallis to Bend and the IBS School of Cosmetology in Springfield near Eugene,Oregon.
Here are a few tips to help you in finding the best place for you.
1. What are you wanting to specialize in, cutting only? Then finding a beauty school that offers a Barbering program is the best place to start.
Esthetics? Then likewise, find the Cosmetology school that offers the best Esthetics/Esthetician program. Hair Designer? Find a hair school that will teach you how to navigate through any hair type and prepare you for an upscale salon, not a mall franchise! Where the instructors are successful salon owners or successful behind the chair, what’s their history?
And remember, a general rule of thumb is don’t spread yourself too thin – specialize and focus on the discipline/skill that you want to earn a living and excel in. Remember the old adage? “Jack of all trades – master of none.”It’s far better to narrow your trade down and get the specialized training you need.
That’s why at JohnnyMatthew’s we focus. Focus on Hair Design (cutting and chemicals) and Barbering(fast track cutting) only. We realize your time is important and want to get you the best training in the best possible time, so you can get the best jobs in the hairdressing industry.
