Cosmetology Schools in Brownsville, TX that Offer Hands-On Training

Perhaps you even gave a few practice cuts to brave friends and family throughout the years. The desire to become a cosmetologist likely runs deep within your bones. The only thing standing in your way at this point is the appropriate certification.

While that can feel daunting, even overwhelming, keep in mind that your training includes ample hands-on learning opportunities.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
