What a cosmetologist does.
Cosmetology is the study of skin, hair and nails which includes manicures, pedicures, special occasion hairstyling, shampooing hair, cosmetic application, body hair removal, chemical hair relaxers or straighteners, permanent waves, coloring and highlighting of hair, and hair extensions or wig treatments.

A cosmetology career is creative and educates you to help your clients achieve specific looks.
