It was split between clinical and theory hours. Theory would be first and go over what we would be doing in the to state board the Juniors takeover the if lab. You would learn all the techniques on a mannequin first, them when the seniors are preparing to go floor and work on actual clients.
We learned in theory what each technique was used for and why, everything associated with hair, skin and nails like what they're composed of, diseases/condition's, chemistry of hair color and perms, as well as skincare. The laws/rules/regulations had to be memorized. Sterilization/sanitation, blood borne pathogens and how they're transferred, what to do if a client is injured, salon safety and many other things. The hardest part is getting over the fear of working on real clients at first aid the most enjoyable was when we got to work on each other.
