This can all be found at www.beautyschools.org. With five specialized tracks, you can choose sessions on teaching, empowering, leading, skin care and a variety of other topics in the specialty track, such as nails and barbering. The sessions are led by industry-leading professionals with the skill and experience to teach educators of cosmetology and wellness from all backgrounds. Learn how to motivate younger generations that are used to being entertained from the time they wake up until they go to bed. Sessions will offer newer teaching methods for you to use in your classroom that maybe you’ve never thought of. You’ll learn ways to increase your students’ job opportunities, how to stay creative, and discover newer methods with nails, skin and airbrush makeup. Many of the tracks offer panel discussions where you can offer up your expertise while learning from your peers.
