1 of 25 Cosmetologist Interview Questions and Answers Written by Elisabeth Walter

Written on July 1st, 2018 |
How to Answer

Share some of the highlights of your training. If you are now specialized in hair or nails, talk about why you chose that particular area. When talking about your training, share some of the skills you learned. Talk about your client interactions as you were trying out new techniques. What was it like to work with a client for the first time? Do you feel like your schooling prepared you for your career? Think of one thing you really enjoyed during your education, whether it be getting hands on experience or learning about how to apply makeup in new ways. Think of one thing you didn't like. Perhaps you didn't feel like the products you learned on were the best or you disagreed with a policy. Focus your attention on the overall experience and show the interviewer you are ready to take on the new challenges at their salon.
