Now that it’s been a few years and I’m trying to breathe life back into it, I’m wondering if any of you would like to see some pictures from my cosmetology school days and/or current fun and interesting stuff I’ve done. It’d also be fun for all of us to share pictures of the chaos that happens in a cosmetology classroom and the inspirational beauty that comes from our efforts! So what do ya say? Shall we add photos to the memes?

Also, I'm not sure if all cosmetology schools use the Milady textbook but I'm pretty sure a fair amount do. Can we just talk about the ridiculous amount of vocab words in chapter 6? My teacher is insane and made us get index cards and write the definition for each one and draw a picture >.< also, I think I might be crazy because I'm in love with doing fingerwaves and they're one of my favorite things to do (/.\)
I don’t know if we all use it but I still have mine! See, my issue was the fact that the makeup chapter is immediately before the chapter on nail disorders/diseases. You’d get all into the face shapes and color theory and then, BAM! Toe fungus. *shudders* We had to take so many notes and tests with nail gunk (it’s a technical term, I swear! XD) that I still warn friends who wanna discover exactly what’s in a cosmetology textbook.
I wish I liked fingerwaves better than I do. Don’t feel crazy, feel awesome cuz I’m jealous!!! They’re so frustrating for me! Updos was the one for me that made everyone go, “How did you DO that and make it look so easy?!” We’ve all got different skills though. That actually became my favorite part of fingerwaves - watching everyone develop their own style of waves. <3
It’s funny, I cut off a LOT of my hair before I went to cosmetology school so people loved practicing things like fingerwaves on me. Unfortunately, my hair has a stubborn mind of its own so it always took much longer and way more effort than anyone anticipated. XD
You guys! <3
I’m sorry I’ve been gone for so long. Life kinda just hit me like a freight train and tumblr became a much lower priority. But it feels amazing to come back and find a handful of messages like this. I love, love, love you guys and I’ll try to come up with some new stuff again soon. ^_^

Well, I’m outta school, but nope, it wasn’t SMC. ^_^

Anonymous said: I know you posted about this before but nothing makes me more mad than when people try to say our profession is easy! I know you guys can all relate to at least someone saying that anyone could be a cosmetologist or your college friends say they'd rather go to beauty school than to do all their college work. I don't know about you, but at my school, we were tested frequently, while friends were having winter/spring break I was going to school, even on Saturdays! It just upsets me to no end, mean while the same people who down the profession will pay 110 dollars for highlights...go figure.
It’s true. When my friends were out for summer, I was at school ~9 hours a day, with a half hour lunch. You’re being watched and tested (written and/or practical) CONSTANTLY. Some days you have 8 straight hours of theory, and some days you start with a perm/haircut/rollerset that takes you 6 hours to complete. It’s not easy at all. But it’s absolutely worth it. <3
On an unrelated note: I know I’ve been quiet for a while now, but a family tragedy kinda hit me outta nowhere and I’m trying to get through it. I constantly have ideas for new posts, but I’ve been unable to work on anything for a while. I promise to get back to posting Cosmetology Chihuahua once things settle down, but for now, if you want new lols, the safest bet is to submit. ^^;

Nope, that’s not it. But good guess! ^_^

Watch Martin Parsons video
Count while you backcomb for the rest of the day.
EDIT: Made one for ya!
I totally read this submission while I was at a friend’s house and busted out laughing. I had to explain who Martin Parsons was and then admit that to this day, whenever I backcomb, I’m counting in my head. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
ohheypaige said: I love your blog. I sit in class with some of my girls and we read these and laugh because we relate so much. What cosmetology school did you go to if you don't mind me asking?
Oh man, Cosmetology Chihuahua’s getting all of the love today, lol. But I love that you guys read this in class. That’s awesome. If you guys think of anything funny while working, you should absolutely submit it! Even if it’s just a funny story. I would LOVE to hear some stories from all of you. ^_^
Also, I’ve gotten a few people asking what school I went to. I don’t want people to think I’m ignoring them (I’m not at all! I try to answer every question, I just may not get to it immediately), but I’m one of those people who’s terribly paranoid about posting personal information online. However, I believe I’ve already said that I went to a cosmetology school that was part of a community college in California, and since I believe there’s only a few of those… That’s still all I’m gunna say. Sorry guys, paranoia runs deep. ^_^;
I’ll admit it if anyone can properly guess which school it is. XD
