All of us have a bad hair day now and then. But if you want to help others avoid that fate, consider majoring in cosmetology. You’ll learn how the right conditioner can tame the wildest of manes, how to transform a blonde into a redhead, and even how to tactfully suggest that the comb-over just isn’t doing the trick.

But mostly, you’ll learn to cut hair -- fine, wispy, fly-away hair; thick, coarse, curly hair; baby hair and older people’s hair. You’ll also learn how to give facials, manicures, and other salon basics, such as handling difficult customers.
