Pass your state boards with ease!

This app is great! For beauty school students everywhere, you can reinforce your knowledge and get through the areas you may have trouble learning in your program. There are very detailed guidelines in each lesson. If you’re a “visual learner” the short videos of various techniques are helpful. I know they work for me when I need to “see” how to do it. This app gives you lessons on styling, six basic haircuts, haircolor, chemical services, skin and nails, textured hair, basically it’s state board! I love that there are practical applications for each service. Believe me when I say if you are diligent and use the techniques, do the haircuts, and pass the quizzes, you will breeze right through your state boards!

We love hearing that the app works for you! Thank you for pointing out that it can help reinforce what students learn in cosmetology school. Our goal is to help students and teachers with distance learning, with cosmetology theory, with practical application, and with state board preparation. There’s so much to cover! For those who want extra intensive preparation for the written state board exam, check out our other app, Filmbook State Board. It’s specifically designed to help you pass!

10/10 Recommend

Absolutely love this app! 😃 It has so many haircutting and hair coloring instructions in it. I finished cosmetology school but this has so much in it I didn’t learn in school!!! (Or my teachers didn’t explain very well 😂) I had trouble with cutting long layers, razor cuts, perms (ugh), and double process. Wish I had this when I was in school, it would have helped me understand everything better. If you want learn cosmetology you should get this!!! It’s really complete and very helpful.

Wow great app

I gotta say, this was great in helping with class, study and practice. Easy peasy to use. Videos and text are strong. Great education and training tool for anyone starting out in the beauty business! A friend who’s very successful in the business suggested I check it out. I don’t use many apps, but this may change that!
