    SMH I wanna kinda go to CS, but I heard that you have to let someone put those chems in your hair, which I don't wanna. What to do?

    i would encourage u to go. and at the school i go to we dont have to let them do our hair unless you want to be a demo/model and that is voulentary. but i go to texas college of cosmetology and i dont think you can be forced into letting people style your hair

    I would ask your instructor what the reasoning behind it is. They'll probably tell you they are trying to help you make money. I'm sure those services are expensive.

    I'd also probably try and draw the instructor out into a conversation about it so in a round about way it educates the rest of the class.

    Nothing that we learn in Cosmetology school comes even close to helping girls with curls know how to truly treat their hair with respect. You have to get outside training for that. We do learn lots of useful techniques that can be applied to many people but they just don't go a long way if your client wants to be naturally curly.

    About how much time and money does it take to become licensed? Also, if someone gets her hair license from another country is it still valid in the US?

    I don't know much about the cosmetolegy business but it seems like they are some years behind the curve. It's possible they have relationships with some of the big manufacturers of this weave-curl-relaxer junk, and that's driving the curriculum.

    It really depends on the state that you will be seeking licensure in. In regards to how much time, it can be as few as 1000hrs and as many as 2300hrs. The state I received my license in requires 2000hrs for a cosmetology license. I personally felt that the extra time gave me the upper hand when I came out of cosmetology school. When I went through school it cost $7,600. Last I heard the school I attended was charging closer to $10,000, but it varies with each school so ask for an information package from schools you are interested in.
    The answer to your country question is yes, but you have to find out the specific qualifications of the state you are trying to become licensed in.
    The following link will more than likely be of more use to you than what I have told you. http://www.beautyschoolsdirectory.com/faq/state_req.php
    Good luck in your investigation.
