1. 99% of your closet consists of black clothing.

Not only does black make for a quick and easy put together and professional look, it also indicates that you’re focused on what’s important: your client. The other reason black is so great for cosmetology school and beyond? It’s great for hiding those inevitable makeup and dye stains!

2. Your friends start asking your opinion on every makeup purchase, skincare woe, and potential hair style.

Yes, it’s great to feel like you have knowledge that might be of help to others. But even though you’re either in school or practising non-stop, your friends are going to want your advice on all things related to beauty, whether blue ombré or gel versus liquid line.

3. You develop muscles you didn’t even know existed from standing, bending, and twisting all day long.

Swollen ankles? Sore back? Yup, you’re in beauty school! It takes some getting used to, and we always recommend having flats on hand—just in case—but it gets easier with time. Just remember to take good care of yourself in your downtime. Take a yoga class, get some exercise and try to stay aware of your posture.

4. You can’t sit through a whole movie or TV show without getting distracted by the makeup and hairstyles.

While it’s great to be constantly on the lookout for inspiration, getting so transfixed by an actress’ awful eyebrows that you lose track of the plot means you’ll never consume media in the same way again.

5. Your hands are always a hot mess.

Whether it’s makeup swatches striping your arm like a candy-coloured sleeve, nicks and cuts from shears, or hair dye that just won’t come out of your fingernails, these are the surest signs that you’re in beauty school. Wear them with pride!

6. You never have the same hairstyle or colour for longer than three weeks.

Whether you’re modelling for a friend or practicing on yourself, you never sport the same hair colour or style for very long. Let’s face it: the best part of beauty school is experimenting. Now if only there was a way to grow hair faster…

7. Your significant other is used to being your guinea pig and runs for cover whenever they hear you say “Baaabe…?” in that special way.

You know the person I’m talking about. It might be your significant other, but it’s just as likely to be your best friend, sister, brother, mom, or cousin. They’ve put up with your experiments, mistakes and tests like a champ.

8. You’re happy, excited, and fulfilled.

Beauty school is where your creativity, passion and crazy ideas come to life, day in and day out. Yes, it’s hard and it isn’t for the faint of heart, but when you’re doing what you love, you’ll feel it—there’s nothing better.
