The instructor must make sure that the material taught adheres to field regulations and standard techniques. Evaluation of the students has to be done periodically through written tests and observing students carrying out cosmetology tasks. It is important to have strong customer service skills, as some beauty school salons are open to the public. Also, students should be taught customer service skills in order to serve their customers. When problems are encountered, the cosmetology instructor should correct them immediately. Instructors might have to readdress the class in a different teaching method.
The ability to keep records is important, as the instructor will have to keep detailed reports and files on students’ progress. Past experience working in a salon may be a requirement in order to be a cosmetology instructor. Hours will vary, as some classes are taught in the morning and others at night. Both part-time and full-time positions are usually available. Usually, it is essential to possess a cosmetology license; sometimes an instructor’s license is needed. A minimum of a high school diploma is also usually needed. Furthermore, some positions will require a bachelor’s degree. (Copyright 2017 PayScale.com)
