Definitely go to school! Beauty school teaches you everything you need to know about your profession- and I'm not just talking about cutting hair or doing makeup. I'm talking about running your own business one day, PR, putting yourself out there and marketing yourself as an independent artist. I'm reading up on some reviews of Marinello in Reno
and I like that they have flexible class timings- it works for anyone who wants to work and study at the same time.
