Re-education must start in the Beauty School, and I am sure the manufacturer schools will not support a neutral curriculum for true modern education in the Industry. One thing for sure is the topic of diversion must be taught in the beauty school system. Students must know the importance of how diversion will lead to a loss of profits in the future when they are seeking a salon environment for employment. Being able to question the industry and there motives when introducing a new line of products from the same manufacturer is a must. Manufacturer schools will set up a criteria of curriculum for there student to learn but not on a generic form. There education is based on there product and gives the student the belief of employment in there Signature Salons. What happens if the student cannot find employment with the manufacturer school then employment may be available with other salon. After that the salon owner will have to untrain and retrain the employee to fit the means of the salon environment. Where does the salon owner go to receive funds for training. My recommendation is for all the salon owners to start to have a relationship with there local schools, and find out if the students are receiving proper schooling for employment. And don't call your local DBPR they are for the consumer that is the whole set up for a State Board is to make sure license requirements are met. So many times I hear "We need to change STATE BOARD", your barking up the wrong tree! They have nothing to do with this problem, and in our beauty industry there is not one form of ORGANIZATION that is Neutral to over see the requirement's of beauty schools that is not corrupt. Not one! It's all business and the lack of knowledge received by the student I feel lays upon the hands of the Beauty Schools and Beauty School Owners. Students must be aware of the industry they are getting themselves into. Beauty schools should have the right to say "WHO BECOMES A HAIRDRESSER AND WHO SHOULD NOT. But with Beauty schools receiving government grants then you get into DISCRIMINATION, RACISM! if you gave the schools authority.
The textbooks they are taught from are very outdated. A larger spectrum of education must also be given to the student. Business, Marketing, Financial, course must also be implemented for the students. Instead of a requirement of state to state regulations for hours. I feel a more solid approach of 2-3 years of schooling with the added apprentice program implemented in that time span. The strain the educational system has weakened the salon industry. This is primarily because of the large influx of uneducated cosmetologists in our industry. And the simplicity of receiving accreditation for school and the ability to transfer the accreditation to other locations. The beauty school owner is the main influence of this disaster. Presently, beauty schools are paid by the governement based on the number of students they enroll in there program. It is not important how qualified the students are or whether they pursue a career. The only importance to the schools owner is the students attendance. The "Standards of Accreditation" published by the NACCAS, outlines the criteria for student recruitment. The school recruits and admits students who have aptitude, interest and motivation to learn and to be employable in the field of cosmetology arts and sciences. One can not debate the philosophy set down by the NACCAS. The problem begins when the glitter and the glamour is gone from the industry, when it becomes difficult to find employment in a industry that is over saturated with cosmetologists. Cosmetologists who graduate will find not a form if viable employment and will do hairdressing service's in there residential address. And for you and I to pay for there unemployment and also there tax's.
When a person or a company produces a product, they should be held accountable. If a company is not held accountable for the product they produce, the quality is bound to suffer. In the case of beauty schools, the product they product are cosmetologists. The salon owner is the recipient of their "product". Yet the salon owner has nothing to say about about how or what is to be taught. It doesn't take to long for the school owner to discover that it is much more profitable to produce quantity rather than quality.
