I want to try to be a hairstylist,but really have no haircutting skills whatsoever. I plan to apply to beauty school in next year,and I don't wanna look like a complete noob.

Is it possible to practice on mannequins with replaceable wigs? I looked on the internet for wigs, but their like $300! Is there a cheaper way to practice?

Cutting each type of hair is a different skill. But would I have to adjust for a person's facial structure too?

Is that not the ENTIRE point of school? If you weren't a noob, you wouldn't really need school, would you?

Okay, for the serious, I'm actually taking Cosmetology for dual-credit right now, so here's your answers:

- Mannequins are very expensive, no doubt. A way to keep your mannequin's hair lasting longer though, is to only cut off about an inch for each haircut you're going to practice.

- Eventually, yes, you're going to have to adjust for each facial shape on a real person. On your mannequin, however, have fun with it. It doesn't matter what haircut you give it because you're just practicing.

Good luck!
