I thought I was prepared for a whole bunch of loot when I entered the Cosmetology building today. I even brought a big suitcase to help lug the stuff back home. I was so, so wrong. When I arrived, I was greeted by this:
I can’t even begin to capture the sheer magnitude of beauty supplies with this photo. This kit includes every hair, makeup, skin, and nail supply anyone would ever need and (count it!) eleven mannequin heads. ELEVEN. I guess I’m going to be cutting, dying, and perming a lot of hair over the next 12 months.
I had the joy of lugging all this stuff up three flights of stairs to my apartment this afternoon. And did I mention that it’s over 100 degrees today and for some reason I chose to wear tight, dark jeans? Yeah…
Still, I’m thoroughly convinced that all the effort (and money— yikes!) will be well worth it in the end. I’m so excited to start the program and blog about it from beginning to end. I’m sure I’ll be able to share some cool tips from the pros along the way, and I’ll definitely be documenting my successes and failures as I navigate through the beauty industry for the first time.
Have you ever been in a work or school program where you were required to purchase an extreme number of supplies beforehand? Ever thought about cosmetology or esthetics school? What do you think you’d like best? What would you hate about it? Tell me all about it in the comments!
