7 Tips to Have a Great First Day of Beauty School!

First day of school jitters? Starting a new program can be a little daunting, but we’re here for you! Following these tips can help you feel excited and ready to tackle the first day!

Get Your Beauty Sleep

We go over a lot of information on the first day of class. Getting a full night’s rest will help you feel focused and sharp all day! You’ll be meeting new people and want to make sure you are feeling your best!

Look Rested, Feel Rested

It’s easier to feel great when you know you look great! Some eye cream or patches can eliminate any dark circles and make you look and feel alert and ready to learn! Here are some Amazon favorites!

Pack Your Bag

Don’t forget to prepare for a full day of school! Throw your essentials is your bag and you’ll be ready to go. Some of our necessities are:

  • Hair Elastics: You’ll be on your feet a lot and it’s nice to keep your hair up so you can focus on your work. Scrunchies, barrettes and elastics are stylish ways to get those locks out of your face.
  • Snacks: Class can be long and you want to make sure to keep your energy up! Nuts, fruit, and granola bars are all mess-free and simple snacks that will keep you going all day.
  • Lotion: Practicing means getting your hands dirty and washing your hands can really dry them out. Hand lotion is a must!

Take Notes in Style

A lot of great material will be coming your way. Don’t miss a thing! There are so many great options for notebooks, calendars, and to-do lists now. Find something that matches how you like to stay organized. You’ll need to study up to pass the state exam to become licensed so make sure to take thorough notes!

Stay Hydrated!

Always make sure you are drinking enough water! Some days you will be on your feet a lot either in the classroom or on the salon floor. Keeping hydrated is important to avoid feeling tired and worn out. There are so many great bottle options out there, from ones that infuse fruit/herbs to ones that promise to keep your drink cold for the day. You’re certain to find one that works for you!

Dress for Success

You may be looking in your closet and wondering what to wear for you first day. We always suggest something comfortable that also looks nice. Most importantly, make sure you feel great and let your personality shine!
