School: Week 1

If you don't know, I started the Esthetics program at Oliver Finley Academy of Cosmetology on the 17th. Originally the plan was to start on June 25th, but some things changed and my husband and I agreed starting earlier was better for us.

The program is approximately 6 months long as it is 600 hours. The end date is around the 24th of September but there is the chance I could finish a little sooner if I go in extra days or go in early/stay late type of thing.

This first week focused on the basics of sterilization, sanitation, disinfecting and setting up the facial room. We went over what supplies, products and equipment are needed.

For our hands on learning we practiced facials and massage on mannequins and each other. The facials were on mannequins while the hand/arm massage was on each other. OMGOSH, can you say RELAXING?! It was horrible when it was after lunch because we all wanted to nap! haha

Tuesday we are going to be practicing facials on each other and Friday we get to bring in models to practice on them. I'm excited to receive a facial and kind of nervous about giving one. I'm sure that with time it'll be one of those things that is second nature.

From the sounds of things we'll start learning about waxing next week. Which is pretty exciting! I think I might be sporting some shorts and/or capris this summer!!! I don't like shaving, it isn't something that I have a lot of time for because of the kids and everything so I normally don't do it often. Waxing will help make it so that it isn't a big deal. :)
