Beauty school!  
I'm gonna construct a journal entry of how I plan to answer the essay questions on my Aveda application... Then when I am satisfied with my answers I will write them in the app. It's almost all done and ready to send off!

Question 1: Why are you considering a career in cosmetology?

Cosmetology has struck my interest many a time, and it has always seemed like a fascinating and rewarding career. I am the type of person that loves to try new hairstyles and isn't afraid to experiment a little. I love the feeling when I walk out of a salon with a fresh new haircut - vibrant, energetic and joyful - I want to give that feeling to other people. I know that this is a career that I will enjoy for a lifetime and I am confident that I have the ability to excel in cosmetology.

Question 2: Why is self-esteem and handling constructive criticism important to being a cosmetologist?

It is important for a cosmetologist to have good self-esteem because if they are unsure about what they are doing, then their clients will pick up on it and probably not enjoy their experience. Your clients should see that you have confidence in what you are doing and know that they will leave your salon with a new look they can be proud of. Being able to handle constructive criticism is also important. A good cosmetologist will take constructive criticism as a way to help themselves improve what they are doing.

Question 3: What is your definition of "professional"?

Being professional means holding yourself to an unwavering high standard. My definition of professional includes a confident understanding in what you are performing, a clean, well-dressed presence, and a good, family-friendly attitude. It would be unprofessional for one to use swear words or tell dirty jokes near their clients or another cosmetologist's clients. Your clients expect a clean and welcoming atmosphere that gives them more reason to return to your salon.

Alright, now I need to choose 2 of these to put on the application. Thoughts? The lady I met with at the school said short and sweet answers were good. I need feedback on this, so any readers that don't post comments, let me know what you think?

1&3 sound the best in my opinion.

1 & 3 are good-- you might say something in 3 about gossip? I know a few girls who do hair and things can be pretty gossipy/ catty sometimes in salons. Good luck!!

Re: I agree
Awesome! Good idea, I think I shall do a little revising...

Also, how are you doing? I noticed that you deleted some of your accounts (unless you just changed your facebook name...?). I've been meaning to text...
