For the past 10 months I’ve had to keep track of EVERY service I’ve done at school.  Herding cats - - that’s what it’s been like.

Now it’s time for me to make sure all these services are accounted for on a ton of worksheets for the state board.  It basically proves that I’ve done the minimum requirements to test for my license.  

Yesterday I finally completed all of my worksheets. If I had the physical dexterity, I would have done back hand springs.  

According to my calculations, I’ve successfully completed the following:
  • 52 Massage Treatments
  • 39 Facials with Machines
  • 50 Facials without machines
  • 16 Back Treatments
  • 15 Standard Makeup Applications
  • 15 Corrective Makeup Applications
  • 21 Eye brow arches (I know this one is an understatement)
  • 31 Waxing/Hair Removal Sessions
  • 15 Lash and Brow Tints
  • 74 Sanitation Procedures
The state board doesn’t ask about the stuff we've enjoy the most (like microderm, lashes, and chemical peels). I guess they know we’re a lot more likely to practice applying false lashes than suffer through bikini waxes. 

So, I've finished 725 hours of my required 750, and I've made roughly $327 in tips in beauty school to date (of which I spent about $300 or so during my break for dinner... or Starbucks).

Now I’m busy running around getting all the “initials” I need to receive my paperwork to schedule my state board exams. I have just a few more services to finish out my week. Next Tuesday I will do a mock demonstration of my state board exam, and Wednesday the 6th is scheduled to be my final clock-out at Nashvegas Beauty U.

I’m gonna miss this beautifully insane place.

  1. Wow, you really don't realize how many hours you put into doing all the "practice" (REAL THING) for everything you'll do as a professional cosmetologist until you lay it out like you did here. Holy smokes. You've been busy!
