Beauty Is Your Ambition – Don’t Let Anything Hold You Back

Beauty is your ambition

Are you ready to make the big change and pursue a career you can love? You may be a good fit for beauty if you’re someone who always keeps up with the latest trends and techniques. Maybe you’ve always been that friend that people go to if they want a new look. But, entering the beauty industry takes ambition!

What’s Holding You Back From Doing What You Love?

There are so many reasons why someone might decide not to do what they love, and we wanted you to know that if you can dream it, you can do it at Crave Beauty Academy. We work hard to provide the support and resources you need to become a successful beauty professional!

Here are some of the most common concerns we hear from people who want to pursue beauty and how you can overcome each and every one!

You’re Not Sure How To Pay for Beauty School

If the cost is what’s holding you back, don’t let it stop you! At Crave Beauty Academy, financial aid is available to those who qualify. Think of beauty school like an investment in yourself, and start doing what you can now to save money and pay yourself back.

Of course, you don’t have to pay for beauty school ALL by yourself, as there are a variety of options available, including, but not limited to:

  • Federal loans
  • Federal grants
  • Scholarships
  • Payment Plans

With loans, you often have to pay the money back with interest, but it’s an easy way to break payments down into manageable sizes. Or, you can choose to use our interest-free payment plans instead.

If you qualify, make sure to look into any grants like the Pell Grant, since that money doesn’t have to be paid back.

Consider looking for scholarships offered from other sources, as we accept those, too! One of the most common places to find beauty school scholarships is through Beauty Changes Lives.

Don’t stop looking for scholarships once you’ve enrolled, as some scholarships are only available for current beauty school students! Paying for beauty school IS possible.

You Don’t Know How To Balance School and Life

Another huge stumbling block is how to fit beauty school into your already busy schedule. Balancing beauty school and life may appear daunting at first, but we firmly believe that it’s possible.

You can choose from our full-time or part-time programs to make it even easier to balance doing what you love! You can work during the day and go to beauty school at night, or if you can balance it, go to beauty school full time with a part-time job.

What’s important is that you don’t do it alone and get the resources you need to avoid burn-out or an overwhelming schedule. Here are some tips to create the right balance for you:

Block time on your calendar.

Block out time for school and work, then fill other places on your calendar for times to relax, whether it’s watching your favorite movie or taking your own spa day. While it’s important to get your responsibilities done, it’s also important to leave a bit of time for yourself, too.

Stick to a schedule.

Once you have some basic times blocked out, you should consider creating a schedule and sticking to it. Your sleep schedule will thank you if you go to bed at the same time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Building a routine can help balance your time and set the expectation for the rest of your household when it’s time to do homework vs. time to play!

Get the help you need.

Talk to your significant other, your parents, or anyone else who would be willing to help! You don’t have to do everything alone. Ask for help watching your children from those you trust, or talk to your family about creating a schedule for dinner, chores, and more.

While every beauty school student is different, it’s important to do your research and find what works for you!

You’re Wondering if a Career in Beauty Worth It

Some people may be worried about the job opportunities available to beauty professionals and if they can actually pursue a successful career after beauty school.

Don’t underestimate the power that an amazing hairstylist can have. Think about the last time you went to a professional stylist. What did you love about the experience? Licensed cosmetologists learn more than how to cut and style hair, they learn how to provide the relaxing experience people need to feel good about themselves and look amazing!

The job outlook for nail technicians is expected to grow by 19% by 2029. People passionate about skincare, hair care, or nail care need a professional to help lead the way!
