- I'm going to be giving a talk to the students of a local cosmetology
school. As a group, they are very interested in theater--because they did
such a good service for me last week on a production of "High School
Musical" I agreed to give the talk. One thing I want to include is a list
of training schools to do hair for the theater and movies. I figured if
there were makeup schools, there would be the same for hairstylists--above
the normal training and certification. I don't know if I'm using the right
search parameters or what, but I'm not coming up with the information I'm
seeking. Anyone got any ideas or know of programs?
Thanks in advance,

I'm not sure if he was searching for a specific 'qualification level' or whatever...but that was part of the requirements for what he was looking to do, professionally).

Of course, there are different grades of cosmetology school, just as there are different grades of makeup schools...you can go to a school that will teach you the basics of hair care--or you can go to a school that runs you out to the cutting edge (no pun intended) and teaches you all kinds of techniques above and beyond the basic application of scissors and clippers (most cosmetology schools in this area, for instance, don't teach their students razor techniques, although it's a popular method for some of the higher-end salons. SOMEONE has to teach it, somewhere...)
(The remaining few not covered by 'most' in my first paragraph have actually either been self-taught or picked it up in bits and pieces from other people they've worked with...that's kind of the state I'm at, right now.)
I'm not saying that there aren't such programs in place somewhere...just that nobody I know has ever even made passing mention of them, in my recollection. You could be hard-pressed to find anything to recommend, in terms of hair-only programs...though I'm under the impression that many of the better makeup schools also teach quite a bit about hair (mainly about how to achieve certain styles, not so much about cutting it and maintaining it...)
- I'm needing to work up a rental form. I know there are several examples in
the files on the Yahoo Groups home page for CostumersManifesto, but for
some reason only known to Yahoo, I can't access the the page. They tell me
I'm not a member of this Group. So I'm hoping someone can help by sharing
their rental forms.
