Hair Removal & School

Q: What do you call a professional person who just removes hair? Can you go to school to JUST do that: hair removal?
 
laser hair removal A: In most places, the cosmetic services typically performed in a salon are performed by individuals who have completed one of three groupings of coursework and training. These individuals are known as cosmetologists, estheticians, and nail technicians.
 
      Cosmetologists are those who have studied all aspects of hair, nail and skin care, styling and esthetic services and are qualified and licensed to perform virtually any salon procedure from hair cuts and color to body waxing and sculptured nail applications.
 
      Nail technicians and estheticians have chosen to take more specialized courses and are trained only to perform those services that fall under their respective categories. Nail technicians perform manicures and pedicures as well applying artificial nails. Estheticians perform facials, eye brow shaping and the various hair removal services, such as waxing. Training and certification as a nail technician or esthetician can be gotten in much less time than it takes for cosmetology training, but all of these require training either in a certified school or with a licensed instructor as an apprentice.
 
      They also require licensure by a governing body in whatever part of the world you live in. In the U.S. it is the Secretary of Stateís office (in whichever state you happen to live) that governs licensure via a board of members who conduct examinations to test the knowledge of the various candidates once they have completed the required training.
 
      So, to answer your question: No. You canít just go to school to do hair removal, but you donít have to train for a full, master cosmetologistís license, either. The esthetician training will get you the necessary education and background on the various areas of hair removal as well as important knowledge of skin care issues and how to help problem skin and - more importantly Ė doing no harm to those with skin problems.
