How To Become A Licensed Electrologist
To start, you can complete the electrology curriculum, for a license in California, in anywhere from 5 to 12 months, part or full time. Licensing exams are offered every 6 to 7 weeks and the day you pass, you're handed your Electrology license that day so you can begin working 24 hours later.
Setting up an Electrology practice is very inexpensive. Including the cost of your education, your epilator, a treatment bed and stool, a sterilizer and some miscellaneous supplies, you can capitalize your business for under 17,000!
There are few legitimate business opportunities that cost so little to establish. And when you consider that the cost of setting up can be less if you lease space within a spa, medi-spa, in a salon or in a doctor’s office, where some of what you need may already be in place, example, a stool and treatment bed, you can be working full time sooner than you think.
Many graduates will start their practices within a business primarily because there are existing clients already in place for the services that business offers. And this setup can be a win-win for the Electrologist and the host business. Rent paid by the Electrologist offsets some of the carrying costs for the host business while the Electrologist saves on promotion and advertising. This is a tried and true way to "fast start" your professional practice and gain the income you're looking for while having the freedom to set your own hours.
