Could Cosmetology Be Your Calling?

Choosing A Cosmetology School 1

Has anyone ever complained that you spend too much time standing in front of the mirror, combing and restyling your hair? Do you ladies make sure that your makeup and mascara is just this side of perfect, and nothing in the world will break your concentration in your mission to get everything ‘just right’? Did you ever stop to think that you can turn those petty criticisms from family and friends into compliments? Yep. It’s true.

The answer may be found at Dorsey Schools – at the Taylor Campus, to be exact. Unlike most of the other Dorsey locations, the Taylor Campus, conveniently situated near the Sunrise Center Shopping Center, is devoted exclusively to the study and practice of cosmetology. Even the sign on the building is distinguished by the title: The Dorsey School of Beauty.  Make no mistake. These are not all frills, la-de-da classes. The Dorsey School of Beauty is accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts & Sciences, Inc. (Sure, we want you to have fun and be creative, but just know that we are serious about this.

Also known as the Dorsey School of Beauty, the curriculum that is offered at the Taylor Campus teaches anything and everything about cosmetology. Classes, in theory, are combined with hands-on experience in a professional setting, where each student will develop and refine their skills in a real-work environment. Students have a choice of three concentrations to specialize in: cosmetology, manicuring, or if they find they have a knack for imparting methods of makeup to others, a cosmetology instructor (talk about imitation as the highest form of flattery!). Again, don’t be misled: the teachers do not talk “at” the students. Each class is relatively small, so a genuine rapport develops where the teacher can meet and help the individual needs and goals of each student. Students will also be surprised (not to mention impressed), by the salon environment where they will get to practice as they learn by use of professional equipment.

Successful graduates of this program may go on to pursue careers in a wide range of professions including stylist, makeup artist, or color, skin or nail specialist. Got a head for business? Consider becoming a cosmetic salesperson. There are as many career possibilities as there are shades of lipstick. Give it some thought – you could help keep Michigan looking good.

And while we’re on that topic, here is further information that should make Dorsey Schools look good: financial aid is available to those who qualify, as are career services that include personalized assistance in your job search.
