The world of beauty is available to everyone! We know school can be intimidating and a lot of our students wonder how they can juggle school with their other responsibilities at home and work. Here are our seven tips to manage your responsibilities while in beauty school!
Stay on top of everything without feeling overwhelmed by managing your time wisely! Our students often have a lot of responsibilities beyond school and it can be easy to lose track of what they need to do. Organization can make a world of difference! There are a variety of techniques to manage your time. Find one that works for you and you will feel on top of your schedule without feeling overwhelmed.
We all need people to help us get through hard times. Having a strong support system can make a huge difference in managing stressful times. Reach out to those around you and don’t forget to communicate with them about what you need! Support can come in so many ways. Turn to family and friends who encourage you to pursue your dreams.
Our admissions team and instructors at American Beauty College are dedicated to helping students succeed. Whether or not you have outside support, you can come to our cosmetology or barbering programs knowing that we are cheering for you and will do what we can to help. Your peers in class will be there for you, too! They share similar interests and are going through the same experience you are. Reach out and develop connections that will help you stay focused on your goals and get you through the rough patches.
Before enrolling in beauty school, make sure you know what options you have to pay for school. If the institute is accredited, you can apply for Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). A lot of beauty schools also offer different financial options, including payment plans, grants, and scholarships. Ask them about what options they have and what would be a good fit for you!
Financial aid can alleviate a lot of stress. You may be able to cut back on work hours while you are in school or not have to worry about paying for class so you can focus on excelling and learning while in school! At American Beauty College, we offer a wide range of ways you can pay for school, including financial aid available to those who qualify.
Don’t push yourself too hard. You want to avoid being overworked and losing your drive. One of the most important things you can do to avoid burn-out is to remember to recharge. This means scheduling time to take care of yourself. Check out some of the latest YouTube tutorials, binge watch a favorite show, relax with a bath, or spoil yourself with some retail therapy. Whatever helps you feel rejuvenated! You’re doing a lot but you still need to take care of yourself.
Hard Work Pays Off
When the going gets tough, the tough get going. You’re doing a lot and we know that school can be a challenge. You’re committing to a full-time schedule and constantly learning new techniques and information. Some days it will seem like a lot.

You have the drive and passion to do great things. If you can put in the time and work now, you will feel ready to jump into the career world and leave your mark on the industry!
It’s All About Perspective
While you’re in the middle of school and trying to find a balance with the other areas in your life, it may seem like you won’t make it to your goals. Take a moment to step back and remember why you are here. You chose beauty school so that you could have the future of your dreams.
