ive visited a few and uncertain which to choose. it doesnt help that i live in north ftw near saginaw and am quite a ways away from a lot available in dallas.
here are my options:
toni & guy in keller wanted $600 to begin and offer a day only program. the facility is fantastic (i took my daughters to get haircuts), the distance is maybe 15 minutes from my home, but that pricetag on someone economically challenged (i pestered the admissions rep for the registration fee before i went in, i didnt want to waste his or my time) trying to find a new vocation is impossible.
paul mitchell is about 40 minutes from my home, located in arlington but i hear the contacts and better understanding of hair is stellar, their kit is also packed with awesome stuff.
ogle is a dallas favorite. i went and the facility was nothing to brag about but if im just after my cosmetology license this place would help me get there. im not really stoked about the hours for part-time or full-time. fulltime is 830-430 mon-fri until you hit a certain period then it is 830-430 saturday. evening hours are m-thurs 530-10pm and rotating saturdays. and the location in fort worth is really far from me, its almost in benbrook. their registration fee is 75 bucks.
at this point im still confused as to which to pick. i suppose what i need to know is which would be able to give me the best options when i get out? i have been unemployed for 3 years and know cosmetology would be a perfect fit but i need to know if my school choice will impact my prospects after school finishes? does it even matter? because if it doesnt id gladly pick a school thats closer to me, learn the fundamentals, and obtain my license.
