What’s the Difference Between Beautician School and Hairdressing School?

Looks like you have a passion for all things beauty, but you are trying to determine the right education for you. If you’re wondering what the difference between beautician school and hairdressing school is, our answer is, not much! The purpose of both schools is to teach you skills you need to perform on clients. The best way to decide the right school for you should depend on the programs you are most interested in. Read more on how Moler Beauty Academy can help you to decide.

Beautician School Vs. Hairstyling School

Hairstyling school and beautician school are similar and often interchangeable as they have a lot in common. Beautician schools most likely focus on cosmetology and teach you about make-up, nails, hair, facial treatments, and more. Hoping to start your journey in more of a spa environment? Then beautician school is a great option! Hairstyling schools focus solely on hair treatments, color, or any type of hairstyling method. Which type of school seems to be more of your interest? Are you feeling stuck on what sounds right for you? Take our Beauty School Quiz to find the right program for you!

Programs Offered

Every beauty school is different, but we can at least give you an idea of what programs we offer. Moler Beauty Academy offers courses in cosmetology, manicuring, and esthetics:

  • Cosmetology – If you have always been into the latest beauty trends, then this program is for you. As the beauty industry is constantly growing and changing, our cosmetology program offers the most current courses to keep you up-to-date in your knowledge. During the program, you can expect to learn about haircutting, coloring, waxing, facials, eyelash extensions, and more!
  • Manicuring – Growing up, you were always the person who would paint your friend’s nails. Our manicuring program teaches more than just painting nails. Our program can educate you on manicures, pedicures, nail enhancements, proper sanitation, hand, and arm massages, etc.
  • Esthetician – Do you enjoy helping others in a spa-type of environment? Our esthetics program offers up to six different certifications, including chemical peels, dermaplaning, hot stone massage, microdermabrasion, and more. Moler Beauty Academy’s Esthetics Program can help you to pursue your passion and feel more confident in these practices.
  • The title of the school doesn’t matter as much as the accreditation of the schools or programs and curriculum offered. Moler Beauty Academy offers a variety of programs for your continuing education. We meet the board cosmetology licensing exam standards of the National Accrediting Commissions of Career Arts and Sciences and are eligible for financial aid.* This is important to help you get the best education possible to succeed and meet your goals.
