Cosmetology school is usually a combination of classroom education and hands-on learning. The day to day depends on how far along the student is in the program. Newer students spend almost all of their time in the classroom, while experienced students spend most of their time on the salon floor. Programs and hours will vary from school to school, but most include a number of hours that need to be completed before the student can pass the state board licensing exam. Cosmetology schools make it their priority to prepare students for this exam so they can practice cosmetology within their state.
