Nature of the Cosmetology Career: There are physical demands placed on the body in any career. In cosmetology, care must be taken to protect your back, legs, and feet. One way to do this is strength training to enhance your back, abdomen, and leg muscles. Regular exercise will help to promote all over body conditioning, and will improve circulation in your legs and feet. We recommend consulting your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Because this job requires that you stand for long periods of time, it is suggested that you wear proper fitting, supportive shoes, and support hose. These are not a requirement but will help to increase your chances of longevity in the profession.
