Questions You Should Ask During Your Beauty School Tour
Are you thinking about pursuing a future in the beauty industry? With trends constantly changing, now is an exciting time to start a career in beauty! We know that applying for a beauty school is a big step to take, which is why scheduling a tour could be a great beginning to your journey. During your visit, you’ll be able to talk with instructors and students to get a general idea of what you could expect from your education. It’s important that you get the most out of this crucial part of your research. That’s why we’ve created this list of 7 questions you should ask during your beauty school tour. Keep reading to find out what they are!
1. Does Your School Offer Financial Aid?
Investing for your beauty school education is a big commitment. One of the first questions you should make sure to ask is whether they are an accredited beauty school that allows them to offer financial aid options available to students who qualify. Since Innovate Salon Academy is approved by the Department of Education, we have the opportunity to offer financial aid to those who are eligible.
The first step to starting the financial aid process is filling out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Although we provide links to starting this form and the student code needed to complete it, you can always use your tour to get more information about it. Maybe you have specific questions about your personal finances and how financial aid can help pay for your education. We will have multiple team members who are qualified to help you with this stage of your beauty journey!
2. What Program Options are Available?
The beauty industry is constantly growing! This means that there are so many exciting new areas of beauty to explore and it all depends on what you’re most passionate about. At Innovate Salon Academy, we offer a variety of programs so that you can pursue a future in beauty that’s right for you.

At Innovate Salon Academy, many of our programs have a part-time option so that you can study when it’s most convenient. Ask us more about our scheduling options during your tour to learn what this could look like for your education.
5. What Makes Your Beauty School Stand Out?
As a beauty school student, you want to make sure that you receive an education that can help you stand apart from other graduates. This question is a good way to learn more about what your experience could look like and what you might gain from applying to the school. They may have won an award for one of their programs or they could offer several scholarship options for their students. These are just some things you should look for when asking this question.
