After graduating from cosmetology school, you must pass the state board of cosmetology exam before you can start working in the beauty industry. There are two portions of the exam, the written and the practical, and you must pass both in order to obtain your cosmetology license.
Since so much depends on the outcome of this exam, it’s not unusual to become nervous and stressed at the thought of taking the exam. That’s why it’s important to be as prepared as possible before going into it!
Salon Success Academy takes the state board of cosmetology exam very seriously! Cosmetology instructors begin preparing students extensively for the exam about half-way through the program. As graduation nears, each student must take and pass their mock state board, which is administered by cosmetology instructor Ms. Rena. The mock state board is as close to the real exam as possible and takes about four hours to complete.
