If you want to become a cosmetologist, you have to earn your license first. Luckily, Brillare Beauty Institute teaches you everything you need to know to pass both the written and practical portions of the Tennessee cosmetology state board exam. Let’s look at what you need to know to prepare for your cosmetology state boards and how Brillare helps you prepare for them.
How Do the Exam’s Different Portions Work?
The exam is split into two parts: the theory or written exam and the practical exam. You take the theory exam first to show that you possess the knowledge required of a licensed cosmetologist. You must pass the theory exam to make it to the practical exam, according to Tennessee state board exam requirements. When test takers fail the theory exam, they receive instructions on how to retake the test. When they pass, however, they receive instructions on taking the practical exam. At Brillare, we offer you the skills and knowledge to pass both exam portions.
How Does Brillare Prepare You For the Exam?
Brillare prepares you to pass your state boards by teaching you the theory and the practical skills you need starting on day one. Unlike other cosmetology schools, we don’t force you to read from books before you learn the practical techniques. We designed our hands-on classrooms to help you learn practical cosmetology skills as soon as possible. Once you’ve completed your classroom hours, you practice those techniques on clients in our student-run SalonSpa. Then, when you’re ready to take your boards, one of our instructors oversees a Tennessee cosmetology state board practice test in the SalonSpa. We make sure you have both the knowledge and the skills required to pass your licensing exam.
Why Should You Take a Practice Exam?
You should take a cosmetology practice exam so you know exactly what you’re in for when you take the real test. Additionally, you can learn what your strongest skills and knowledge areas are when you take a cosmetology practice test. Once you learn what your best and worst areas are, you can study your weakest knowledge areas and practice your weakest skills. Then you can focus on getting them strong enough to pass your boards of cosmetology. Overall, a practice test shows you where your skills and knowledge base currently are so you can see how well you’d do on the real exam before you take it.

What Else Does a Cosmetology License Require?
Passing the written and practical exams aren’t the only requirements you need to meet to become a licensed cosmetologist. In Tennessee, you must also be at least 16 years old and have 1,500 hours of both theory and practice at a cosmetology school. Once you earn your cosmetology license, you have to renew periodically, and your renewal notice will be mailed to you a month before the renewal is due. If you meet these requirements, you’ll be that much closer to earning and maintaining your cosmetology license.
