The idea of beauty has caused varied and extensive debates over many centuries. Beauty is studied in many scientific fields such as sociology, psychology, and culture. However, for the purpose of our beauty school and the way we deal with and perceive beauty, we decided to remain bound by the confines of our industry and the work of beauticians when addressing the notion of beauty.


A small survey was sent around campus and many students and instructors were able to participate. When it was done, we read and filtered out many answers until we came to the conclusion that most of our beauticians feel that beauty is found in a work well done.


To work in the beauty industry you need to have passion for what you do. For those of you who have finally graduated and are out there looking for jobs, here are a few tips that will help you along the way. First, you need to be persistent. When writing your resume remember to incorporate skills from all aspects of your life because companies are usually interested in learning how you think and what motivates you.
